The third edition of Brasilia Photo Show offered winners a party to launch the book 2015/2016, as well as exhibitions and awards.
Photography is vastness. Of looks, of possibilities, of senses. In the 21st century, it is even more so. Images registered at the third Brasilia Photo Show international festival of photography (BPS) revealed that photography is a connection. And connected to a new time, the BPS 2017/2018 edition received 9,050 images of Brazilian and foreign photographers, 2,650 more than in 2016. On the morning of November 4, authors of the winning photos were in the capital to receive the prizes and participate in the launch party of the 2017/2018 book. The ceremony took place at the Cinemark Taguatinga Shopping and once again counted with Cia de Comédia Setebelos.
Since 2015, the first year of the festival, more than 32 million visits have been recorded on the official BPS Facebook page. Over 20,000 participating photos were posted. The first edition marked 5,400 registered photos and more than 5.2 million views on Facebook. In the second edition, 6,400 photos were submitted and received more than 10 million views. In 2017, we reached about 20 million views. “The photo opens incredible windows. It freezes the viewer’s eyes to show them the previously unimaginable. Our festival is inclusive, democratic, transcends our everyday routines. Its success is due to this”, Vergara points out.
