logo voies off

Since 1996

Voies Off offers an alternative approach to emerging contemporary photography, its particularities, its evolutions, and its areas of resistance.

Voies Off night projections during the opening week of the Rencontres d’Arles festival have become an international reference for the discovery of emerging authors and the alternative venue that it creates for international photographic creation.

Year after year, the selected themes have met the evolutions of our contemporary world with a critical eye. Over twenty different nationalities are represented at each festival. Every year, around sixty candidates are selected for the programme of the night-projections.

Every July, the Voies Off Prize is awarded by a jury of renowned professionals to an artist for the clarity of his/her vision and the high quality of his/her work.
The current amount of the prize is 2,500 euros.
