About

The ShowOFF Section is one of the most important parts of the Krakow Photomonth Festival. Every year it presents premiere projects by young artists selected through an open competition

What winners receive

The winners’ original projects will be exhibited during the ShowOFF Section in the form of an exhibition. The winning projects will be displayed at a collective exhibition in a specially arranged area during the Krakow Photomonth Festival, so that viewers will be able to experience the various projects.

About the organization

The Foundation for Visual Arts is a non-profit organisation established in 2001 in Krakow. Dedicated to the promotion and dissemination of visual arts in Poland, with an emphasis on photography, the Foundation has sought out new definitions of what photography is within the context of contemporary art, history, and social sciences. This mission is pursued during the Foundation’s key project—the annual Krakow Photomonth Festival. The Foundation for Visual Arts organises other cultural events, publishes books, promotes young artists and new initiatives, as well as digitalises photographic archives, including documentary photographs of Wojciech Plewiński and Zofia Rydet’s Sociological Record.
