Free Revue d’Images - Call for submissions

Free Revue d&8217;Images
Lyon, France

Call for submissions – photography and visual arts
Zaï-Batsu, Broadcast and Lyon Capitale magazine invite you to contribute in the creation of Free Revue d&8217;Images (Images Review).

Dedicated to contemporary artists, this publication is the incarnation of "Gratuit", which was published 26 times from 1979 until 1994 by french artist Gilles Mahé.

Free Revue d&8217;Images is based on a catalogue of photographs, composed of a broad selection of work created and submitted by the artists, and covering all fields of contemporary creation in photography and visual arts.

The review is financed by advertisers sponsoring the publication of specific image(s) they have selected from Free&8217;s catalogue. Under each image, published full page, space is dedicated to the name and contact informations of the sponsor. A single contents page indexes artists&8217;s credits and mentions other partners. No other articles or advertisements appear in the magazine.

Free&8217;s raison d&8217;être is to question the current trends in the circuations of pictures: their status, production and distribution, the marketplace, as well as the relationship between the sponsor and the artist.

Published on quadri tabloid format (9.45 × 16.15 inches / H37 x L25 cm), the review will be distributed free of charge to the public and professionals. The launch is scheduled for September 2005, synchronised with the 8TH Biennial of contemporary Art of Lyon, France. The magazine will be available in Lyon and other cities in France and abroad, distributed to trend-setting and modern locations.

Furthermore, the weekly magazine Lyon Capitale, will offer the revue to its readers.
