ICEC Photo Exhibition
Attention: All Photographers, Amateur to Professional
The International Cultural Exchange Committee (ICEC) in cooperation with Water Street Studios in Batavia (WSS) is seeking photographs of the City of Geneva for an International Photography Exhibition.

The images will be printed and sent to Croissy-sur-Seine, a southwest suburb of Paris and partner city to Geneva in September 2016. The work will serve to inform the citizens of Croissy-sur-Seine and the surrounding community of the beauty and history of Geneva. The work will be accompanied by some historical Geneva artifacts in an exhibit. Work will also be displayed in an exhibition at WSS during January 2017.

This call for entries is open to all photographers, amateur to professional. We are seeking images that utilize photography in all styles, techniques, and aesthetic approaches. Images may include but are not limited to landmarks, historical architecture, the everyday experience of a Genevan such as dining or shopping, special events, and nature. All images must be taken within City of Geneva boundaries to be considered.

Each entrant may submit up to three images for consideration.

Images of the City of Geneva will be accepted until June 17, 2016. There is no fee to apply and notification of acceptance will be by June 20, 2016. The images will be juried by a panel of WSS and ICEC staff and board. Artwork may be used for a fundraiser to help offset the cost of the exhibition (shipping, hanging, etc.) since there is no cost to submit.

How to submit photos:
Please email the consent form and high-resolution digital photograph submissions to: with the subject heading, “ICEC Geneva Photo Submission”
