Photographers and Fashion Designers are encouraged to visit the official site of the Villa Noailles and click on the right hand side where it says Hyeres 2009, there you can download the requirements. Normally it is in English. HOwever I only see it in French. The important part is the Deadline – your dossier must be with the festival no later than December 4th. The jury meets to make the first selection of fashion designers on December 17th, after the preselection the actual jury for the festival this year will meet and make the final selection. The designers and photographers that have been chosen will be notified in January.

You can then download the pdf on requirements and other important information.

The 24th edition of the International Festival of Fashion and Photography takes place at the Villa Noailles, Hyeres /24-27 April. 

You can visit A Shaded VIew channel or Antoine Asseraf's site to see more of DPTV and the previous editions of the festival d'Hyeres

The festival is open, and welcomes, applications from all corners of the globe. 

See you there.
