Registration for a workshop is only confirmed after reception of the enrolment form and a deposit of 50% of the fee at the Rencontres d’Arles office (Bureau des Rencontres d’Arles / 34, rue du Docteur Fanton / BP 30096 / 13632 Arles Cedex). Registration depends on availability. Excluding exceptions stipulated on the workshop information sheet, participants are accepted in the order of arrival of registration forms. Registration is possible up until the day before the workshop begins. No enrolment or booking can be accepted by telephone. The balance of the fee must be paid one month before the workshop begins.
If there is not enough participants, a workhop can be cancelled.
For holders of a French bank account, payment of the workshop deposit and balance (see REGISTRATION, above) must be made with a cheque in euros made out to the Rencontres d’Arles.
For applicants living abroad or who do not have a bank account in France, payment of the deposit and balance (see REGISTRATION, above) must be made by bank transfer(please ask for bank details by e-mail) or postal order (sent from a post office) made out to Rencontres d’Arles / 34, rue du Docteur Fanton / BP 30096 / 13632 Arles Cedex. All payment-related costs are borne by the workshop participant.
NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS & WAITING LIST
The number of participants is limited to 12, except in the case of one-day workshops, for which the maximum is 15.
If a workshop is full, you can still be put on the waiting list. But we advise you to mention if you have a second choice on the application form.
CANCELLATION OF REGISTRATION
Cancellation of enrolment is possible if the Rencontres d’Arles are informed at least 45 days before the beginning of the workshop. If the cancellation is made before this deadline, the participant’s deposit will be given back, with a deduction of 60 euros for administrative expenses.
CANCELLATION OF A PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
Les Rencontres d’Arles workshops are rarely cancelled, but this can happen when the number of applications is insufficient or the workshop director becomes unavailable.
If it happens, les Rencontres d’Arles will work together with those enrolled to try to find an alternative workshop. For this reason, please indicate a second choice on the enrolment application. If no acceptable solution is found, les Rencontres d’Arles undertake to reimburse the enrolment fee paid.
The Rencontres d’Arles reserve the right to cancel a photography workshop because of a shortfall in participant numbers up until a maximum of 20 days before the workshop is scheduled to begin.
No expenses will be paid or reimbursement made for costs (transport, accommodation) incurred by a participant whose workshop has been cancelled.
For cancellations made less than 45 days in advance, no reimbursement will be made except in cases of force majeur.
