Event History

This is the fifth consecutive year that Getxophoto Festival launches this call for entries. In the last edition, this Open Art Call for visual artists and photographers was very well received internationally: 331 projects by artists from 45 different countries.

What Makes this event different?

This art call opens the doors to be able to exhibit at the Getxophoto International Image Festival. The festival takes place during the month of June mostly in the public space of Getxo (very close to Bilbao, the Basque Country).
