Events Swiss Riviera | Hotel Le Mirador Kempinski Mont-Pèlerin | Lake Geneva

13/09/2014 – 05/10/2014


Every two years in Vevey, the 'Festival of Pictures' aims to bring alive and highlight the institutions associated with the visual arts on the Riviera.

For a month, the city becomes a veritable open-air museum dedicated to pictures. With free entry, the Festival of Pictures distinguishes itself from other photography events in Switzerland. Taking the Vevey label, ""City of Pictures"" literally, the 2008 edition of the event saw the creation of an ""open-air photographs"" section. On that occasion, it was the picture that came towards the public, and giant images took up their positions and became part of the urban landscape. The festival is also the occasion to present a preview of the results of the ""European Grand Prix of the First Films"" and of the ""International Photography Grand Prix of Vevey"", which, from year to year, enjoy growing success and recognition.
