Les Boutographies is a Festival of Contemporary Creative Photography open to all photographers living in Europe.

Since 2001 The Boutographies – Rencontres Photographiques de Montpellier have been oriented towards young, emerging European talent. After seven years in the Boutonnet district (hence the name) the event moved in 2008 to the centre of Montpellier, where it now offers photographers, public and partners one of the finest exhibition spaces in the south of France.

A jury composed of professionals concerned with the image selects fifteen works to be exhibited, and a further fifteen to be projected.

The criteria for selection by a jury of professional in the photographic field are a height creative level, originality and a coherent personal vision.
