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.
The Festival Images is the most important visual art biennale in Switzerland. Every two years, it presents inspiring projects with local, national and international artists. The next Festival Images Vevey will take place from September 5-27th 2020.
Festival Images takes place in even years but Images Vevey also allocates support grants of more than EUR 40,000 for photographic projects every other year. The award enables one artist to develop an original project over a year that will be presented at the next Festival Images Vevey in September 2020.
