To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Franco-Chinese relationships, the Festival International en Baie de Saint-Brieuc has decided, in conjunction with Chines Plurielles association, to invite Chinese photographers from IPA (International Photography Association) and the students from the Photojournalism University in Beijing to present their vision of China. A call for submission has been launched in late April in China, and the Chinese photographers have submitted their photo essays according to the theme : « Chinese show their China to Bretons ».
The jury has selected one feature amongst 13 pre-selected by Alain Dupeyron, former director of France Télévisions University. The winner is Yongming Guo for his reportage on weddings in Northern China, and he will receive a grant of 10 000 € during the opening week of the Festival. The shortlisted twelve photographers will be exhibited in a video slideshow at Carré Rosengart.
