WHO WE ARE
From its very beginnings, B the travel brand Xperience has been wholly committed to culture, and in particular, photography. Through our spaces, inspirational places where the culture of travel is promoted, we have shown and disseminated the work of dozens of photographers. Now we are going a step further and broadening our horizons with this first photographic competition in which we have been able to count on the expert advice of the Foto Colectania Foundation.
WHY FOTO COLECTANIA?
Set up in 2002, Foto Colectania is a non-profit organisation that has become a benchmark in the photographic scene. Located in Barcelona but with an evident, strong international outlook, its work on the dissemination of photography has been commendable, encouraging the development of cultural projects and working in conjunction with other organisations. With this in mind, having the advice and support of Foto Colectania is key to the success of this first competition both in terms of participation and the quality of the project.
WHO ARE WE AIMING AT?
This competition is open to all photographers, professionals or amateurs, newcomers or well-established ones, who can take on the challenge of dreaming up and designing an exhibition project suitable for our galleries, inspired by the concept of a journey, in all its possible aspects and interpretations.
To motivate and inspire:
Our commitment to photography is determined. That’s why we want to create new opportunities and motivate artists with a project that will include producing an exhibition that will travel to various towns in Spain and Portugal.
To stand out:
Our intention with this project is to become another benchmark in the world of photography, linking our brand to cultural values so as to stand out from other businesses in the sector.
Just as a journey is one step after another opening new horizons and allowing us to grow, we want to go further and escape from the typical kind of travel photography, interpreting a journey from a less touristic perspective, so as to encourage projects with a more artistic quality.
A journey has infinite nuances. It could be simply going from one place to the next, a short ramble, an unexpected adventure, a voluntary exile, an aimless expedition or even an interior odyssey. There are as many journeys as there are travellers and we want this project to inspire you to find your very own.
