Every year since 2010, the Alliance Française Foundation organizes a grand international photography contest for the 835 Alliances Françaises of the world in collaboration with the magazine ‘Courrier International’.
This contest is in tune with the profound vocation of the Alliance Française, to understand better French language and culture and to promote cultural diversity all over the world.
It aims to highlight the richness and the plurality of the AF network abroad, to unify all Alliances into a common project and to give an opportunity to amateur photographers to exhibit their works in Paris and internationally.
For this third edition, the theme was ‘Professions of the world’. The amateur photographers were asked to portray men and women in the extraordinary diversity of their professions, in the beauty as in the hardships of their daily occupations.
The contest was also organized in Hyderabad with over 80 contestants. Our winner, Swarat Ghosh, stood 2nd in the World competition! Here is an opportunity to see his wonderful photographs (one of them being of a Surabhi actress, who, coincidentally travelled to France in May this year) as well as those of the winners of this grand contest.
The exhibition will be inaugurated on 23rd October at 6.30pm at Alliance Francaise Gallery, and displayed until 1st of November.
