FOTOFILMIC18 is the 6th edition of the FotoFilmic International Juried Traveling Exhibition Competition, world’s only global call for contemporary analogue and film-based photography presenting a unique and exciting picture of 21st C. photographic arts rooted in material practices. Since 2012 FotoFilmic has occupied a leading role at the forefront of the film and analogue photography renaissance having exhibited over 150 photographers from 30 countries in New York, Los Angeles, Seoul, Melbourne, Vancouver, Boise, plus Paris and Thessaloniki next fall with the FOTOFILMIC17 tour.

FotoFilmic Traveling Exhibitions represent the most ambitious opportunity available today for early to mid-career photographic artists working on film and analogue media to showcase their burgeoning talent on the world contemporary photography scene and have it noticed by some of the most respected influencers, publishers and curators in the industry. Best of all, FotoFilmic exhibitors do so in their own voice, grounded in the same material experiences that defined the medium since its 1839 inception. So make history happen again, join FotoFilmic’s unique photographic legacy in the digital age and get a shot at the new prestigious $5,000 BUSCHLEN MOWATT NICHOL  FOUNDATION FOTOFILMIC PRIZE!
