The jury of “FRAMMENTI CALL.4.COLLAGIST”, considering all the collages received and the high quality of the proposals has decided to reward 15 authors instead of 10. The jury selection criteria focused on interpretation by the artist of the festival’s theme “THE SKIN I LIVE”, giving space not only to successful artists but also to emerging artists. The originality and quality of the collage technique have been taken into account. The work of the Greek artist Lane, chosen as one of the official images of the Festival, incorporates these features into a complex, lightweight, and impressive graphic composition.

The exhibition of all selected collages will be exhibited during the PSPF at the Civic Museum of Palazzo Penna from March 10th to April 8th, 2018


The Perugia Social Photo Fest (“THE SKIN I LIVE”) opens a participatory space through “FRAMMENTI” CALL.4.COLLAGIST addressed to those who use the analogue collage technique as a form of visual art. The PSPF wants to investigate current issues with a bottom-up approach, enhancing the different languages and thus supporting active citizenship participation. The call represents the tool to make everyone active participant to the festival. The selected collage will be used in the official communication of the PSPF (posters, brochures, etc.) and will be one of the official images of the next festival. A collective exhibition – during the festival – will show the 10 more interesting collages received.


Participation is open to collagists (of age) and emerging professionals. Submissions by groups will be treated as single submission. The objective is to give visibility to new artists working with analogue collage, enhancing the several interpretations of the PSPF 2018 theme, and disseminating new languages of contemporary culture.

The works will have to realize the topic chosen for the PSPF 2018 – THE SKIN I LIVE. Skin as identity, skin as a border, skin as communication, skin as a relationship.

Each candidate can submit one or more works (max 3), to be received by the PSPF no later than 31/08/2017 (23.59 CET). The images must have a good resolution (scan) minimum 300 dpi suitable for the jury’s view and for printing 70 cm x 100 cm. All files should be in jpg or pdf format.
