This year, Alliance Française’s International photo contest is themed on sport
It is that time of the year when photographers in the city (along with the rest of the world) go back to the files and archives to pore over their collection of incessant clicks and after a decent bout of dilemma, pick the photo that they can send for the 6th edition of the international photo contest of Fondation Alliance Française.

This year, the theme is Objectif Sport!, where the idea will be to portray any sport that is governed by specific rules and customs integral to the culture of a country or community and plays a strong social role in societies.
The participants will need to capture an image, which according to them, depicts the best sporting activity and through the lens of photography conveys values of the sport like tolerance and openness.

The first phase of the contest will be the responsibility of each local Alliance Française and then the final winner will be decided in Paris. After that, a selection of the photos will be displayed at a collective exhibition in a Parisian art gallery or at the gallery of the Fondation Alliance Française. The successful photographs will also be published in media outlets specialising in art and photography.
Deadline: May 8
