The Rencontres d'Arles is registered with the prefecture as a training provider and obtained the Datadock certificate in 2018 and the Qualiopi label in March 2022. The quality certification was issued for training actions.

The photography courses are held in the framework of continuous professional training and can be taken as an individual (self-financing) or, soon, through the intermediary of a third party (a financial institution, companies, etc.). Whether you’re an employee, author, intermittent worker in the performing arts, freelancer or jobseeker, you can receive financial aid under certain conditions.

Your application for 2022 will be validated once the Rencontres d'Arles receives the Qualiopy label.
