Sorbonne Artgallery is pleased to present the winners of the IREST 2020 Prize on view from January 24 to February 7, 2020. 


The Institut de Recherche et d'Études Supérieures du Tourisme (IREST) was founded in 1989. It is a multi-disciplinary institute attached to the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, offering a wide range of professional bachelor's and master's degrees in tourism development, heritage enhancement, hotel management and international tourism in Paris and abroad. Research activities are organized within the EIREST (Equipe Interdisciplinaire de REcherches Sur le Tourisme), which comprises geographers, economists, lawyers, historians, art historians and sociologists working on tourism in an interdisciplinary approach. IREST coordinates the activities of the UNESCO Chair in "Culture, Tourism and Development" and the UNITWIN UNESCO international network of universities on five continents.


With over 2,700,000 photos posted on social networks every 20 minutes, photography is more than ever the universal language of contemporary society. Since the digital revolution, photography has certainly been the most immediate and popular medium for conveying emotions and a vision of the world. Practically since its invention, photography has also been one of the main activities of travelers and tourists around the world. That's why IREST is keen to encourage photographers to share their work, which bears witness to the transformations in the tourism sector and the issues and conflicts it raises.

Competition theme: Tourism and migration

In 2018, tourism enabled 1.4 billion people to travel the world and discover others. Migration, for its part, is one of the most important socio-economic and geopolitical issues of our time. They are the source of new itineraries, but also of new human adventures, sometimes tragic, as well as encounters, the consequences of which can only be fully understood in the future. At IREST, we felt it was important not only to contribute to documenting our times, but also to ask photographers how they might view these routes, their possible cross-fertilizations and the issues at stake.


Jury: Dimitri BECK (Director of Photography, POLKA), Jean-Philippe CARRIE (Head of Communications, IREST), Francesca COMINELLI (MCF, Director of IREST), Diane GRIMONET (photographer), Michel Tiard (President, AIDA-IREST), Yann TOMA (Professor and artist, Director of Sorbonne ArtGallery).
