Eyes Wide Open is pleased to announce the launch of the second edition of the Ronan Guillou Grants as part of the CIVIS MARITIMUS program, in tribute to the French photographer Ronan Guillou.

Based on the same territory – the Occitania region (France) – CIVIS MARITIMUS invites two European photographers and/or photographers from the southern shores of the Mediterranean, each to produce a photographic project focusing on social, cultural, ecological and/or heritage issues connecting people and the marine world.

The two award-winning photographers will have a period of two and a half months to complete their project, with final delivery of the elements due by September 15, 2024. They will have to be present in Sète on May 7, 2024 to attend and take part in the opening of the “Itinérances Foto” trail. A public meeting will be organized to present their approach. They will be accommodated in Sète from May 7 to July 7, 2024. The second edition of the Bourses Ronan Guillou is supported by the town of Sète, M28 and Château Laurens, built in Agde from 1898 by collector Emmanuel Laurens.
