Event History

Unpublished Photo is now in its fifth edition and the competition continues to attract a growing number of young artists from all over the world every year. The initiative was first launched by the Milanese gallery 29 ARTS IN PROGRESS, and then taken forward by MUSEC in Lugano, in 2020 with the aim of strengthening cross-border collaborations and showing continual support of young artists' work.

What Makes this event different?

The contest is promoted by the Fondazione culture e musei and MUSEC Lugano, in collaboration with the 29 ARTS IN PROGRESS gallery in Milan and the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti in Venice. Unpublished Photo is a global open call that embraces, new, young, and emerging contemporary photographers, aged between 18 and 30. Applicants can submit their applications until April 15th 2024 (12:00 am local time). The “open call” has no theme constrictions or entry fees and applicants just need to submit a project consisting of 10 images, a description of the project and a short biography. The images submitted must not have been published on or offline before. An online application form is available at the following link: https://www.fcmusei.ch/contest/
