On many of our projects, without losing sight of the goal of fulfilling our mission, we collaborate with other organizations that help us to make this possible.
Since 2005, the Dutch foundation has entrusted to Photographic Social Vision the organization in Barcelona of the world’s most prestigious photojournalism exhibition. Sharing values and a similar mission, reflected both in this exhibition and in its annual photography and multimedia competition, the World Press Photo Foundation expends a large part of its efforts, as we do, on education: on discovering and training the young photojournalists who will document the world to come.
Our ties with the Banc Sabadell Foundation go back almost to the very beginnings of Photographic Social Vision. The World Press Photo and DOCfield projects have been made possible thanks to its support, as has the DOCfield Dummy Award Fundació Banc Sabadell, which gives greater visibility to new publication formats available to photographers doing important work.
Visa pour l’image is the major international photojournalism festival, held every year in Perpignan in the south of France. It is an exceptional encounter for photography lovers, bringing together visitors from all over the world with a shared passion for photojournalism. Exhibitions, screenings, round-table discussions, and encounters are held all over the city. Photographic Social Vision has been supporting Visa pour l’image since 2011, coproducing some of the exhibitions, which it later moves to Barcelona.
The Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) has coproduced the World Press Photo exhibition in Barcelona since its beginnings and collaborates with Photographic Social Vision in the organization of the world’s most important photojournalism exhibition. As a space for creation, research, information, and debate on contemporary culture, the centre has become an ideal setting both for the exhibition itself and for its multimedia content and complementary activities.
Chic&basic hotels support the efforts of the Foundation by welcoming our guest authors into their rooms, during both World Press Photo Barcelona and the DOCfield Documentary Photography Festival. Located at strategic points in the centre of Barcelona, their facilities all offer the “chic & basic” touch.
