PARTICIPATE IN THE PHOTOESPAÑA FESTIVAL

The experience of 25 years of the Festival PHotoESPAÑA allows us to design a teaching program of the highest level, which ends with the exposition of the students as part of the Official Section of the Festival, but their participation options are broader.

During the PHotoESPAÑA Festival, students will have an active involvement in all the activities and events within its programming. They will be invited to attend all the openings of the exhibitions, to participate in calls, viewings, seminars, talks and meetings. Participating in all opportunities that arise in order to expand their knowledge in the field of photography and establish synergies between all participants and professionals in the sector.

«I was looking to take photography in a more professional and artistic way and I have discovered that for this, in addition to the references and the knowledge provided by the readings, a critical support group and a network of professionals are needed, which the Master provides. It could be said that the Master opens your eyes and makes available a series of resources to make your way in the world of art and photography.»
