Information for artists and photographers

The Photoforum Pasquart receives a lot of inquiries from artists. Please note that our annual programme includes 5 exhibitions and the planning starts about two years in advance. We have to limit our selection and unfortunately can rarely consider recommendations.

If you would like to send us your portfolio, please send it in pdf format to Please do not send us original prints. We will not return printed portfolios and books unless a pre-stamped envelope is sent with the portfolio. The books are considered donations for our library unless we receive a pre-stamped enveloppe for their return. As we are not a museum and have no collection, we cannot accept donations of prints.

All artists and photographers are invited to partake in our annual photography award, the Prix Photoforum. The call for project is launched every year in June.
