The Fondazione Culture e musei and MUSEC of Lugano, in collaboration with the 29 ARTS IN PROGRESS gallery in Milan and theIstituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti of Venice, are promoting Unpublished Photo, a project aimed at identifying young talents of contemporary photography between 18 and 30 years old.
Starting today 16 February, registration for the 2023 edition of the competition is open. The competition, born in 2018, attracts every year a growing number of young artists from all over the world.
Here the links of the previous editions of the award:
The UP23 competition will award the first runner-up a monetary prize of CHF 2,000; the second runner-up receives CHF 1,500, while the third and fourth finalists each receive CHF 1,000.
A selection of the works of the UP23 finalists will be published in a photo booklet edit by FCM. The De Pietri Artphilein Foundation, a partner in the initiative, will produce and publish with Artphilein Editions, a valuable limited edition artist book entirely dedicated to the project of one of the finalists.
Once again this year, MUSEC will present the finalist’s works to the public, exhibiting them from 15 December 2023 to 18 February 2024 in Lugano at its Villa Malpensata venue.
