Photography Residency

Plano Frontal_Photography Residency will be happening in Melgaço between July 29 and August 07, 2022, alongside MDOC - Melgaço International Documentary Film Festival. The purpose of this photography residency is to contribute for an archive about Melgaço, to provide Espaço Memória e Fronteira with works that reflect the region and to promote photography and the appearance of new photographers.

Three young photographers will direct, for a week, a project about local themes, yet to be proposed.

Plano Frontal_Photography Residency’s main targets are senior students on their final year attending higher education courses in Photography or that have recently completed their education. The participants will be selected through application analysis and oriented by Pedro Sena Nunes, a director/tutor with a large professional and pedagogical experience.

All work will be framed and supported by a production team and a technical team formed by Carlos Eduardo Viana, Rui Ramos and João Gigante.

It addresses all those people willing to live through a unique experience, whose objective is to produce a photography project and to participate in the festival's activities.

The organization committee will guarantee free room and board, from July 29 until August 07 2022, to the three selected candidates and will provide logistic support for the teams to travel to shooting locations.
Each selected candidate will have to guarantee his own traveling, to and from Melgaço.
