Hyères Festival opens applications for 2019

Oct 22, 2018

The Hyères Festival is back again. The famous competition for young designers has opened applications for its 34th edition, slated to take place from 25th to 29th April 2019, giving candidates until 26th November to sign up and until 1st December to submit their full applications.

The International Fashion and Photography Festival's professional jury will name ten finalists in each of the competition's three categories, namely fashion, launched in 1986, photography, first introduced in 1997, and accessories, launched only two editions ago in 2017. 

Just like last year, the call for applications is accompanied by three short films (one for each category) co-directed by Elise Amblard and Jalis Vienne through artists' collective Soleil Rouge. The playful and vaguely surreal videos feature different people saying –audibly or otherwise – parts of a phrase that announces that applications for the festival are now open. 

Notable participants in the three mini films are founder and director of the Hyères Festival, Jean-Pierre Blanc, as well as the event's president, Pascale Mussard, and the three winners of its 2017 edition.
