The visual arts Festival Images is the first open-air photography festival of Switzerland. Every two years, it produces unseen monumental photography exhibitions in the streets of Vevey and also proposes numerous exhibitions in various regional institutions dedicated to the image. The festival is also an opportunity to introduce the winning projects of the Vevey International Photo Award.

Entirely free, the Festival Images is a true open-air museum and a quality platform for Swiss and international artists. For the 2014 edition, it had organised 68 exhibitions, and recorded over 100’000 visit at the indoor exhibitions (50’000 for the Salle del Castillo only).

The next edition will be held from Sept 10th to October 2nd 2016.
