About the Organisers
The International Image Festival 2019 is organized by The Autonomous University of the State of Hidalgo (UAEH) and its Board of Trustees are fully committed to the promotion of culture and arts. For that reason they call students, artists, professors, researchers, and experts to participate with their ideas and proposals in the IX Edition of FINI which will be held on May 2-10, 2019 having as main topic “Populism”.
About the Competition
The word “populism” derives from the Latin word populus, and in a simpler way, populism seeks to defend the interest and maximize the power of ordinary citizens (usually the most disadvantaged groups) through public policies to achieve social equality and common well-being.
In cultural terms, we can say that it refers to those trends and artistic manifestations that are popular, folkloric, ritualistic, traditional or customary.
We invite you all to participate in the International Image Contest, FINI 2019, to show through your artistic proposals some of these ideas and concepts to build a more inclusive and more equitable world.
The contest has 4 categories:
1. Photography (analog and digital);
2. Alternative techniques (digital art, photomontage or collage);
3. Documentary Film (short / feature-length film);
4. Poster (free technique).
The main topic of FINI 2019 will be POPULISM.
The competition is open to students and professionals of photography, design, visual arts and documentary films, aged 18 and over.
Prizes worth Rs. 16 Lacs to be distributed.
