#FIACwithBalzac Instagram Contest

21 September 2015

Win two tickets to the FIAC

Congratulations to the winners !

Thank you to everyone who participated in our FIAC with Balzac contest. Join us in congratulating our six lucky winners:







The winners will be notified by direct message on Instagram.

How to participate?

Help us create art with the things you see every day and you could win tickets to the FIAC contemporary art fair.

The premise is simple, if you see something that looks like one of the letters of our hotel (like in the above examples), just snap a quick photo of it and send it to us.

1. See one (or more) of the letters in ‘Balzac’ around you and take a photograph of it.
2. Tag your photos with #hotelbalzac, #parisart and #FIACwithBalzac.
3. Publish and share your photos on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter until the 14th of October 2015 before noon (UTC/GMT+2).


Our special guest, Danielle Voirin, artist and photographer from Chicago, will provide expertise to help us select the six most original and creative photos.

"A good photograph.  It makes us feel something, even if the feeling makes us want to look away.  It shows us something we've not seen before; even if the subject is familiar, the treatment of it is unique and personal.  Any elements of composition, used or rebelled against, bring us right to the photograph's essence." 


6 x 2 tickets to the FIAC at Grand Palais


The list of winners will be published starting from the 15th of October 2015 at 11:00am (UTC/GMT+2).


Luck may smile on you. As Paul Verlaine, French poet, said, "art lies in being absolutely oneself".
