CODICE MIA, this year in its VI edition, is placed within the program of MIA Photo Fair as landmark event for the mid-career artists who want to establish a connection with active figures in international collecting. Following a rigorous selection, 30 photographers will have the privilege of meeting face to face collectors, art advisors and curators of corporate and institutional collections from around the world. The meetings have the typical form of a portfolio review, but innovative and unique is the choice of interlocutors. The reviewers are experts of the fine-art photography market, those who take the decisions for their own private collections or for corporate and museum collections.
Conceived and organised by Enrica Viganò, CODICE MIA project has had overwhelmingly positive feedback from both participating artists and reviewers. On one hand, in fact, for collectors the chance to discover artists, acquire works, support projects and endorse photographers is really exciting. And, on the other hand, for the artists the opportunity to exchange ideas and information with major personalities in the photography market is definitely an advantage hard to get otherwise.
Confirmed the Charles Jing Grant for the best portfolio, added to the consolidated CODICE MIA Award. It will be awarded to the first place a gross prize of 7,000 Euro, in addition to the free concession of a booth in the 2020 edition of MIA Photo Fair in Milan. The second winner will be awarded with a gross prize of 3,000 Euro. The awards will go to the artists who will present the most significant visual research, for style and originality in the use of photographic language. Both winners will be selected by a jury composed by Enrica Viganò and by all the reviewers.
