Our partners at PhEST are inviting all artists to upload images of reunions and accompanying stories of separation to Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #ReunionCalling. An international jury will assign a host of prizes including an exhibition at PhEST2021, a publication on PHmuseum News, and vouchers for Leica Akademie Italy workshops.

A jury made up of PhEST artistic direction, Leica Akademie Italy, FIAF and PHmuseum will select the best works among those submitted by March 31st 2021 and will assign the numerous prizes:
- four vouchers of the value of 290/each for the prestigious Leica Akademie workshops, valid for one year;
- one voucher of the value of 1.000 in rental equipment offered by Camera Service Group, to be used to produce a personal project at the end of the pandemic or, even better, to tell the story of the reunion;
- a publication on PHmuseum News website and on their social channels;
- a selection of the submitted works will become an official exhibition at the 6th edition of PhEST - international festival of photography and arts in Monopoli.
The submitted works will eventually be re-posted on PhEST social channels during the open call.
#ReunionCalling is made in collaboration with Leica Akademie Italy, PHmuseum, FIAF and Camera Service Group.
