STRATEGIA FOTOGRAFIA 2020

The Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity (DGCC) of the Ministry for cultural heritage and activities and for tourism (MiBACT) has issued the Strategia Fotografia 2020 notice, allocating € 1,300,000 to the acquisition, commissioning, conservation, and promotion of Italian and international photography and photographic culture.

The public notice comes under the framework of the DGCC’s institutional actions to promote and support Italian excellence, research, and talents in the field of photography, in keeping with the priorities indicated by Minister Dario Franceschini in accordance with the content of the Strategic development plan for Photography in Italy.
Strategia fotografia 2020 aims to foster the promotion of photography in Italy and abroad, as historic heritage and contemporary language, and an instrument of memory, expression, and understanding of reality, of use for including and increasing an independent critical sensitivity on the part of the public.

Towards this end, four lines of action have been planned, relating to the acquisition, commissioning, conservation, and promotion of historic and contemporary photographic heritage, in Italy and abroad.

Proposals may originate from museums, institutions, and places of culture that intend to: augment their photography collections or extend their collections to photography with targeted planning, through acquisitions and commissions; implement interventions to conserve and capitalize on public photographic heritage. For promotional activities like exhibitions, shows, events, and festivals, the competition is open to non-profit third-sector organizations, entities, foundations, and associations that are engaged in the promotion, development, spread, and knowledge of historic and contemporary photographic heritage, and in the spread and promotion of contemporary photography in Italy and abroad.

The announcement and its attachments may be downloaded in the “Documentation” section.

Deadline: 27 November 2020
