Road Trip

This festival counts with the participation of illustrious personalities from the world of photography and video. In our opinion, it would be a waste to bring these people to Portugal, some of them for the first time, and not show them the best that Portugal has to offer by taking the central region as an ambassador for our country.

Although Portugal is a small country, it is quite large in terms of historical, cultural and natural heritage. This is the richness we want to show them, year after year. The main purpose of this road trip is to “sell” our country and region abroad, captivating our speakers and participants that we have a lot to offer in terms of landscape, gastronomy and culture.

Following our mission to put Aveiro in the map of the international photography festivals, it is essential that these road trips are focused on the Aveiro region and central region, where Aveiro is inserted.

This road trip happened thanks to the support of Prio Energy, Lexus Portugal, Aldeias do Xisto and Turismo Centro de Portugal.

The roadtrip was intense and travelled through the central region from the coast to the interior, from Aveiro and the beaches of Costa Nova and Barra to the Schist Villages of Lousã, Candal, Cerdeira, Janeiro de Cima, Sertã, up the Zêzere route, passing by the Santa Luzia dam, to the Serra da Estrela it was an unforgettable human, visual and gastronomic experience for the guest photographers and guests.
