Call for entries: 2015 BMW Residency at Musée Nicéphore Niépce

Residency 2015: from Monday 7th September to Friday 27th November 2015
Deadline: Wednesday 15th April 2015

BMW values the importance of aesthetics and technological innovation, and supports photography as an original, distinct art form. The Group is strongly rooted in France, including in Chalon-sur-Saône, so the partnership with the Nicéphore Niépce Museum was a logical choice.

This unique, ambitious cultural partnership, set up in 2011, offers an artist’s residency program. Over the past years, the work of the first three prize winners has been showcased to photography professionals and the wider public.

BMW is supporting the entire process from creation to production, culminating in the unveiling of the finished works at the Rencontres d’Arles and Paris Photo, and the publication of a book and and a video illustrating the creative process and the universe of the winning photographer.
