Atlantic Loire Valley
Event - Quinzaine Photographique de Nantes
The best of contemporary photography.

The Quinzaine Photographique de Nantes or QPN is a festival dedicated to the promotion of contemporary photography. The event has a double agenda - to promote contemporary art in an attractive light to the public in the heart of the city. Secondly, it aims to provide established professionals as well as young talents with an opportunity to reach a wider public, as they compete for the "QPN Prize".

The winner will have a personal display space throughout the entire event, the best possible showcase for a budding photographer.

In addition, visitors can tour the city seeing a series of exhibitions, screenings, conferences and readings. This festival has established contemporary photography within the cultural landscape of Nantes.
