The submissions deadline for the Voies Off Award 2013 has been extended – photographers are now able to submit their entries until 28 February 2013. The winner of the annual 2,500 Euro prize will be announced during the first week of the Rencontres d’Arles photography festival. For the past eighteen years, Voies Off have been introducing international photography artists throughout the opening week of the Rencontres d’Arles festival, with the aim of offering an alternative approach to contemporary photography.
1,500 photographers from 60 countries competed for the 2012 award. The winner was Christian Kryl with his series ‘Top of the World’, documenting the lives of the Rich and Beautiful holidaying in St. Moritz. Fascinated by the display of excessive wealth, Kryl travelled to the popular Swiss resort – where statement sunglasses and extravagant furs are the order of the day – and created a portrait of our moneyed elite.
