Since 1 February 2023, and until the 28th of the same month, a call for applications opened for the tenth edition of the Rencontres photographiques du 10e, which will be held for one month, from the end of September to October. The call is open to any photographer living or working in Paris or the Paris region, or whose work has a link with the 10th arrondissement of the capital.

On this occasion, the arrondissement will be transformed into a photo gallery, offering exhibitions, events, screenings, meetings, and workshops. In 2021, twelve winning artists were selected to participate in the central exhibition of the biennial, based on themes echoing the life in the district. Amateurs and professionals are welcome and may have the opportunity to exhibit their work in galleries, animation centres, libraries, shops, restaurants.

Initiated by the Château d’eau library and the 10th arrondissement town hall, the event takes the form of a biennial, organised since 2005. Fetart will hold the artistic direction and organisation, a collective of ten independent curators specialising in photography, and a permanent team. Familiar with this kind of project, they also organise the festival of young European photography at the Centquatre, which will take place from 25 March to 21 May.
