The Planche(s) Contact Off Festival welcomes every year about fifteen photographic exhibitions set up by photographers living in Deauville for part of the year, or by groups and associations of photography lovers. Deauville and its various aspects are the main theme of this Festival section, whose participants know very well the city and its identity. Exhibitions are organized in private places, galleries, hotels…from October 20th to November 25th.

The Off exhibitions are announced through communication documents, the program and the website about the Festival. The inauguration of the Off exhibition is organized on the opening day of the Festival, in the presence of photographers. All production costs of the exhibition (printing production, framing and hanging systems) are borne by photographers.

The 2018 Off call for applications is free, open to all photographers. It does not require a school career, references or experiences. To apply, send a short biography to planches.contact@deauville.fr before Wednesday, June 6th, 12 pm and:
- 5 images representing your previous works and/or a link to their website
- a text of 8 to 10 lines summarizing your photographic project about Deauville
The selection is done following image quality criteria, the photographic approach proposed and its connection with Deauville. Application dossiers are studied as and when received.
