THE YOUNG TALENT SPRINGBOARD: ACCOMPANYING TOMORROW'S PHOTOGRAPHERS

A constant at all of Deauville's cultural festivals, support for young talents takes concrete form with Contact Board (s) through a competition open from the outset to students of European photography schools, then to young photographers whatever their background. Welcomed in residence in Deauville, they produced a photographic work on the city, presented to the public during the Festival and submitted to the vote of image professionals and the public.

A SPRINGBOARD OPEN TO ALL PHOTOGRAPHIC WRITINGS
The candidates are selected by the jury of Contact Board (s) composed of image professionals, according to their photographic background, their interest in photographic commissioning and a portfolio of their work. There is no obligation of educational background, references or experience.
A CREATION RESIDENCE AND AN EXHIBITION
They receive a grant of € 4000, dedicated to the creation and production of a photographic series exhibited during the Planche (s) Contact festival. The selected photographers are welcomed in residence in Deauville. The objective of these residences is - while questioning the identity of the city and its territory - to allow a young talent to pursue his photographic writing by confronting a commission and the objective of an exhibition. One of them, subject to the vote of the jury, receives the Contact Plate Prize. At the end of the festival, images produced join the photographic collection of the City of Deauville.
