Online call


Coinciding with the XXV anniversary of PHotoESPAÑA and after the success of the #PHEdesdemibalcón and #VisitSpain calls in 2020 and 2021 respectively, the Festival proposes a new call: #PHiestaPHE, a call to citizens to portray the popular celebrations that show the rich cultural and human heritage of our country.

Spain is a country of festivals and millions of travelers want to experience them up close every year. The Sanfermines of Pamplona, ​​the Bonfires of San Juan, the Descent of the Sella or the Tomatina de Buñol are some of the celebrations that summer after summer attract locals and tourists. With images of all of them we want to compose a portrait of contemporary and close Spain that invites the rest of the world to visit us.

Aimed at professional and amateur photographers, the #PHiestaPHE call seeks, once again, to recover the collective hope and joy, and to honor the creativity of all citizens.


Among all the photographs presented, PHotoESPAÑA has made a selection to produce outdoor exhibitions in emblematic spaces from various Spanish towns, thus returning the creativity and talent of citizens to the streets. In addition, a jury appointed by the Festival's Artistic Direction has selected the 10 best images of the call, whose authors will receive a €250 prize each.
