Images Vevey contributes to the promotion of visual arts and the cultural development of the region by bringing to life the ‘Vevey City of Images’ brand through three core activities: Switzerland’s main visual arts biennale Festival Images Vevey, the international photography competition Grand Prix Images Vevey, and the permanent gallery for contemporary photography Espace Images Vevey.
Festival Images Vevey is Switzerland’s first visual arts biennale. Every other year, the festival features unique large-scale photography exhibitions in the streets of Vevey as well as a series of exhibitions in indoor venues, and presents the winning project of the international photography competition Grand Prix Images Vevey.
Espace Images was opened in January 2010 with the aim of showcasing this extremely rich visual heritage and making it accessible to everyone.
Festival Images takes place in even years but Images Vevey also allocates support grants of more than EUR 70,000 for photographic projects every other year.
