These are just some of the countless galleries and museum – of art, science, history, fashion, and design – in Paris.
Many of them were closed for security reasons during the days which followed the November 13 attacks. We were impressed by what could appear a secondary consequence of so grievous an event, because it has made real something which was inconceivable only few months ago.

For these reasons, Inexhibit invites who has visited or will visit Paris to participate to an open contest, which purpose is to support Paris and its museums (and indirectly all places which preserve beauty and knowledge worldwide) through a simple yet effective action: to publish some photographs depicting one of the many places dedicated to art and culture in the capital of France.
The best images will be published on Inexhibit and publicized on our social media pages. The authors of the best 5 photos will also receive a certificate of merit and a cotton bag decorated with their image.
Participation in the contest is completely free.

The contest is open from December 10, 2015 through January 24, 2016.
