Objectif Sport !

photo contest by the Fondation Alliance française

From 21 March to 11 May 2016

Within the scope of 2016’s international sporting events, the Fondation Alliance Française organizes for the 6th occasion a photo contest, “Objectif Sport !” illustrating the theme of sport.

Specific rules and customs, which are framing sport, are an integral part of countries’ culture. Also, sport plays a strong social part in modern as much as traditional society. Thus, participants throughout the world will put in image what, according to us, depicts the best sporting activities in their countries. So, thanks to photography, they will transmit main values of that discipline: tolerance, open-mindedness, social inclusion and team cohesion.

The contest step by step
As many other Alliances françaises in the world, the Alliance française de Bruxelles-Europe takes part in the contest and will introduce the photos of its local winner to the Fondation Alliance française for the final stage of the contest.

Eventually the jury of the Fondation Alliance française will select the photo contest winner. The winner selected will be awarded travel and expenses for a one-week stay in Paris.

Some of the photos submitted by the finalists and the grand prize winner, selected by the jury, will be exhibited in a group exhibition in a Parisian space chosen by the Fondation Alliance française and/or at the gallery of the Fondation.

The names of the finalists will be published after 30 May 2016.

Send two photographs before 11 May to: culture(at)alliancefr.be.
