Itinerant Photography Festival
December 1-3, 2017. Montevideo, Uruguay.
ERRANTE is a nomadic festival whose first edition will take place in Montevideo, Uruguay.
The ERRANTE Portfolio Review is the most important activity of Festival, since it is the moment where a large number of local photographers have the opportunity to share their work with worldwide recognized editors, curators and photographers. For us, it is essential that emerging photographers have access to this meeting, that is why the review is completely free. We have the support of National Geographic Society who will provide a prize of 10,000 USD to a winning portfolio that will emerge from the review. We encourage all photographers in the region to participate.
