Spotlight on People

Biyearly International Photo Festival

The summer of 2017 in Overpelt (Belgium) will be devoted to photography. Better still, it will be devoted to portrait photography. Starting next year, the village Overpelt will organize an international biennial of photography. It will do this with the support of Cultureel Centrum Palethe, Nationale Vereniging van Beroepsfotografen and Centrum voor Beeldexpressie. The title is “Lens op de Mens” (Spotlight on People).

The first edition is all about portrait photography and is planned to start on June 17, 2017 and will continue until August 31 2017. A selection of at least 500 photographs made by Belgian and international photographers will be shown outside in the streets and inside on specific locations. The initiative was taken by Carine Van Gerven; a colleague photographer, fellow villager, and councilor for cultural affairs in Overpelt.

If you are passionate by portrait photography (either professional or not) and you want to show your creations to the world, than you may register on this website: www.fotofestivaloverpelt.be. You can enter until January 9, 2017. If your images are selected for one of the exhibitions, your pictures will also be judged for one of the awards.

Let’s participate and make this a special event. See you next summer in Overpelt!
