All printing and display costs are covered by the festival.

The International Photography Festival GuatePhoto was established in 2010 by the contemporary photo centre La Fototeca to provide an opportunity to exchange views on photography and to promote talent in an international context. As such, it is an open platform for artists, curators, collectors, enthusiasts and photo promoters. Importantly, GuatePhoto accepts and celebrates photography in all its forms including works created digitally and through computer manipulation, and welcomes submissions from emerging artists.
The 2012 edition runs from 7 to 25 November.
