The Wiesbaden Photo Days were launched in 2002 and that makes them the oldest still existing photo festivals in Germany. They each have a specific theme and will take place every three years in the future. The three major photo events in the region – Wiesbaden Photo Days, Darmstadt Photography Days and RAY Fotografieprojekte Frankfurt/RheinMain – agreed on this triennial cycle at the suggestion of the Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain. The 12th edition of the Wiesbaden Photo Days will take place from August 13th to 28th, 2022.


The focus of the photo days are exhibitions in centrally located art and cultural sites in the state capital Wiesbaden. Photographers, students in the fields of art, design, photography or similar subjects, as well as artists who work with the medium of photography, can apply. A diverse accompanying program with symposiums, lectures, artist talks, films and guided tours complements the exhibition and offers numerous opportunities for inspiration and exchange.


The Open Call for the 12th Wiesbaden Photo Days starts on December 1, 2021. A jury will select up to 30 positions for the five exhibition venues from all oft he submitted entries. In addition, all nominees have the chance to win one of the two sponsorship awards - the jury award and the audience award. Both awards donated by Oschatz Visuelle Medien.


The Wiesbaden Photo Days team is already looking forward to a large participation in this year's tender!
