SCAN International Photography Festival

SCAN, the Tarragona photography contest

SCAN offers the public an interesting and complete programme of exhibitions, screenings, conferences and workshops.

This year, SCAN celebrates ten editions reflecting on the Traces theme.

Once again this year, the photography competition has built a quality, transversal and inclusive programme, with activities, professionals and artists under a single guiding motif: traces, understanding photography as the reliable record that it is and, at the same time, with the desire to pay homage to the city of Tarragona and its sea, compilers of diverse cultures that over time have left their traces to shape the societies in which we live.

As usual, SCAN Tarragona will host creators from all over the world, with photography as a means of expression, who will show their work through the more than 40 events, participatory activities and workshops programmed in different spaces in Tarragona, among others.
