Save the Date: The next edition of the PhotoVogue Festival will take place in Milan from March 6th to March 9th, 2025.

Today, we are excited to release the results of our global and local open calls and to announce a significant change for the 9th edition of the PhotoVogue Festival: it will be held from March 6th to March 9th, 2025, instead of the usual November dates. In what we see as a natural evolution for the festival, this shift aligns the event with fashion month, promising even more vibrancy and engagement, reflecting PhotoVogue’s integral place within the Vogue family.


Mark your calendars and ensure you’re in Milan in March for a profound exploration of our bonds with nature. This year’s theme transcends the traditional scope of visual art, advocating a fundamental shift in how we interact with our planet and its inhabitants. It draws on the poignant belief that the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated, as quoted by Mahatma Gandhi. The festival will extend this concept to include not only familiar animals but also those often overlooked, emphasizing their deep emotions and essential roles in preserving our ecosystem.

Drawing inspiration from the book “Kinship: Belonging in a World of Relations” by The Center for Humans and Nature, our festival and open call resonate with the idea of a shared community of life. This includes everything from the bacteria in our bellies to the trees that breathe life into our atmosphere, affirming that all forms of life are our kin. This year, we are honored to partner with Parley for the Oceans, whose dedication to ocean preservation and anti-climate change efforts significantly enhance our collective endeavor.

Over the four days of the festival, attendees can expect a dynamic schedule of exhibitions, panel discussions, and interactive sessions, each designed to deepen our care and respect for the entire family of life that shares our planet. The detailed agenda and list of speakers will be announced in the coming months, ensuring a rich and engaging experience for all participants.

As we continue to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through our initiatives, the PhotoVogue Festival is not just an event but a platform for change. Whether it’s through wildlife documentary photography, environmentally conscious fashion shoots, or videos that explore symbiotic relationships within ecosystems, we seek submissions that inspire change and foster hope. Celebrating our bond with nature and focusing on its beauty and resilience rather than its mistreatment, we aim to nurture a global community grounded in empathy and respect for all life forms.

Join us at Base Milano in March for an inspiring journey through art and nature. Together, we will explore and provoke thoughts, encouraging a holistic approach to our interconnectedness with nature. Stay tuned for more updates on the PhotoVogue Festival where we will celebrate the natural world and remind ourselves of our duty to protect it.

For more details and to stay informed on the upcoming exhibitions and panels, keep an eye on our official channels. We look forward to welcoming you to a festival that promises to be a memorable and transformative experience!
