Open Call for Exhibitions at Fotofestival Lenzburg 2024
  • We are delighted to invite you to submit images for the next edition of Fotofestival Lenzburg, a highly anticipated event to be held in Lenzburg, Switzerland from the 25th of May until the 23rd of June 2024. Renowned photographers and emerging talents from all over the world are invited to share their vision by submitting single images related to our festival theme "SYNTHESIS": Synthesis is everywhere, even if not always easy to spot. We understand it as a process that enhances something by combining multiple elements - not unlike a photo festival itself. Yet, the resulting ensemble is greater than its individual parts - not because the individual parts don't matter or don't matter equally, but because they fundamentally do. More about the theme here:

  • The competition is open to all types of photography and aimed at photographers from far and wide. A jury of curators of the Festival will choose 60 single images that demonstrate a deep understanding of the thematic "SYNTHESIS" and showcase a unique artistic style.

  • The pictures will be showcased in the shop windows of Lenzburg's historic town center, with the chance to win the Public's Award, a prize of 1,000 CHF. Each image will have a corresponding number, and the public will be able to vote for their favorite image via QR code.

  • The Fotofestival Lenzburg has already featured internationally renowned authors, and this small Swiss town is rapidly becoming a not-to-be-missed event for photography professionals and enthusiasts. The town itself will be transformed into an open-air photo gallery with several exhibits, photobooks corners in the bars, and a rich program of events including portfolio reviews, workshops, and talks with authors and experts, creating an intimate and cosy atmosphere.
