PixAround is a series of photographic volumes focused on the regional territory. A project structured in group photographic outings and in a contest between the photographic circles of the region. The collected photos will give life to a dedicated exhibition within the Trieste Photo Days international photography festival and to various exhibitions on the regional territory within the Photo Days Tour.
PixAround is a photographic project promoted by Exhibit Around APS and by the dotART cultural association which collects photos of the regional territory.
Launched in 2021, the PixAround FVG editorial project is a series of photographic volumes focused on the regional territory, which will give life to related photographic exhibitions as part of the Trieste Photo Days / Photo Days Tour festival . The aim of the project is to promote and enhance the cities, towns and provinces of Friuli Venezia Giulia through street photography, social reportage, architectural photography, and in general all photographic styles capable of restoring the essence of a territory rich in history, art and culture.
The photographic Open Call aims to collect single photos and/or projects/portfolios capable of casting an original look at the daily life of the region and capturing with an artistic eye real moments, instants, glimpses, faces against the background of the innumerable beauties of FVG : from city squares to the alleys of towns and villages, passing through castles, abbeys, popular neighborhoods, industrial areas and unusual places.
To photographers interested in submitting single photos , but also projects and portfolios , able to launch an original look at the FVG region.
The participating photographers will have the opportunity to see their photos exhibited in various exhibitions throughout the region and to see them included in the PixAround FVG 2022 photographic volume.
Each author will be able to address the theme through the photographic genre he feels closest to: portrait, street photography, social reportage, documentary photography, fashion photography or fine-art. You can submit photos for multiple locations.
During the period of the PixAround FVG 2022 photographic open call, the 24 HOURS of Photography will take place , a series of group photographic outings open to all (here the calendar ) and linked to a contest . Each release will be promoted in collaboration with a local photographic club .
