Métiers du Monde – how the world works
Since 2010, the Alliance Française Foundation organises a yearly photo competition within its network around the world. The competition aims at highlighting the diversity and richness of the nearly 900 Alliances around the world as well as giving amateur photographers a worldwide visibility through 2 exhibitions in Paris and a worldwide tour.
All the Alliances Françaises have been invited to participate and submit their favourite photos. A jury chosen by the Alliance Française Foundation was responsible for choosing the laureates. The theme of this 3rd edition called “Métiers du monde” gave the photographers a mission to show men and women in their daily occupation. This exhibition illustrates the extraordinary diversity of jobs around the world, be they beautiful or excruciating.
167 Alliances from 74 countries have contributed to this competition and 44 photographs have been selected by our Paris-based jury who have selected 25 laureates.
Come to discover unique crafts coming from local traditions and to grasp the diversity of our ever-changing world.
