Authors, travelbook artists, writers, illustrators, you will find here the application modalities for the selection of the exhibitors invited to the next Rendez-vous du Carnet de Voyage, which will take place on November 13, 14 and 15, 2020 in Clermont-Ferrand.

Today more than ever before our awareness of the fragility of the world is growing, and travelbook creators, filmmakers and writers, all travelling artists, bear witness to its beauty and turbulence. They have travelled through many territories and their eyes invite us to see, understand and love the diversity of the places where life unfolds, and remind us the respect we owe these territories.

Travelbooks, paintings, films or books tell us that going to see elsewhere allows us to see the world as a common and shared good and enriches our humanity. These works encourage the practice of ethical and responsible travel which is at the heart of our event; to travel in a different way, a way that captures, respects and preserves the beauty of the world, so that tomorrow’s journey keeps its full meaning.
