PWA Dummy Awards. Deadline: June 30, 2018

PWA Dummy Awards 2018

In collaboration with Kvadrat, Idea Books, Reflektor, and European Photography.

Submissions now open!

Welcome to the first Photobook Week Aarhus Dummy Awards, where book makers have the opportunity to be discovered by international publishers and experts, to be exhibited at international festivals and to win a complete book publishing! The same as all the other dummy awards out there? Yes and No.

Yes, because the first phase has been held very similar, so you can recycle your PDFs and Videos and send them in at no cost.

No, because we have two juries. The first one is comprised of experts around the globe who will choose 12 candidates from your digital submissions. We will send these 12 dummies in a box around the globe, so the jury members can see them, and then choose 3 finalists. These finalists will be invited to Aarhus to pitch their book projects to the second jury. The winner will receive the Award, which consist in the production, publishing and international distribution of the book.

Too confusing? Let’s go step by step!

Step One

Submit your Dummy as a PDF, together with a video, until June 30, 2018. Submission is free of charge.

Step Two

From these digital entries, an International Preselection Jury will put together a shortlist of 12 candidates, who will send their dummies to Aarhus.

Step Three

PWA will then send these 12 dummies to each jury member of the Award Jury, who will have a couple of days to look at the books before sending the box on to the next member. Once everybody has seen the dummies, the box returns to Aarhus, and the jury votes again, to find out the three finalists.

Step Four

The three finalists will be invited to come to Aarhus during the festival, and present their books to the Award Jury, and the general public. The final jury meeting will be held on October 6, and the winner will be presented that same evening, in a Gala.

All 12 shortlisted dummies will be exhibited at the Photobook Week Aarhus, at the Kvadrat showroom, and other selected venues.

Step Five

The winning book will be designed and produced with the help of three tutors. It will be published & distributed internationally by Photobook Week Aarhus, Reflektor and Idea Books. 50 books will be hand-delivered to experts around the globe. Selected finalists will be featured in the magazine European Photography and be exhibited at PWA 2019.

 

How to Submit

  • Submit your dummy as a PDF not bigger than 15Mb by email to pwa.dummy[at]gmail.com
  • Include a CV and bio of between 800 and 1200 characters.
  • If needed, specify any technical characteristics of the book.
  • You are welcome to include a video of the photobook if you have one already.

OPEN CALL: SAAS-FEE SUMMER INSTITUTE OF ART BERLIN. Art and the Poetics of Praxis in Cognitive Capitalism. DEADLINE JUNE 19, 2018.

Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art (SFSIA) is a nomadic, intensive summer academy with shifting programs in contemporary critical theory. SFSIA stresses an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the relationship between art and politics. This year, in addition to the Berlin academy, we are hosted by Otis College of Art and Design at their Los Angeles campus with participation of the MA Aesthetics and Politics in the School of Critical Studies, CalArts. The program runs two weeks and is structured with half-day seminars, deep readings, and workshops. In the evening SFSIA holds a lecture series, which is open to the public. It is an exciting, rigorous environment to learn in.

Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art | Berlin, 2018 is titled Art and the Poetics of Praxis in Cognitive Capitalism. The seminar will revisit pressing topics of past programs (such as estrangement and individuation) in order to consider the potential healing of a general intellect, now fragmented, dispossessed and restricted by the power of virtuality and techno-linguistic governance. As Franco Berardi has observed, the rising generation is the first to have learned more words from a machine than from their mothers; the result is —in a sense quite different from that intended by Rimbaud— an immense dérèglement de tous les sens or deregulation of signification: a break between meaning and the body. Disempathy is one result. In The Uprising, Berardi calls on poetry to revitalize and reactivate the precarious social body and reconnect a collective intelligence by way of forging singular voices and autonomous resonances. Berardi’s call to poiesis is where this year’s Institute begins.

ENGAGED, ACTIVE, AWARE_WOMEN’S PERSPECTIVES NOW. DEADLINE: JUNE 15, 2018.

ORGAN VIDA International Photography Organization based in Croatia invites artists from all over the world who work in the medium of photography as such or in an expanded form, video and sound, installation, collage to apply to this open call and respond to the given topic: Engaged, Active, Aware — Women’s Perspectives Now. The selected artists will exhibit their work at the main curated exhibition during the jubilee 10th ORGAN VIDA — International Photography Festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, Sep 12 – 30, 2018.

In the time of post-capitalist global turmoil, technological advancements, strengthening of the right-wing extremism, the growing influence of the religion that limits women rights again, and the semblance of democracy in the 21st century, we are facing a situation in which women must fight anew for the rights that had been won long ago. In the midst of initiatives such as #MeToo, Free the Nipple, The Future is Female, and phenomena such as the female gaze, it is necessary to re-examine the current role of photography in representing and articulating women’s experiences, and to critically rethink how digital culture is transforming feminist approaches to the image.

Members of an international jury will have the task of evaluating and selecting 20 artworks that address contemporary challenges, issues and perspectives related to this open call. In particular, the emphasis will be on the inclusion and appreciation of diverse attitudes, different cultural and geographic context that can jointly, in the framework of the curatorial concept, provide an overview of the current situation in the global socio-political and feminist scene. We therefore invite all interested artists who work in the medium of photography as such or in an expanded form, video, or installation to apply to this open call and respond to the given topic. The selected artists will exhibit their work at the 10th Organ Vida Photography Festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, Sep 12 – 30, 2018.
Submission deadline: 15 June, 2018.

Fees: 30€ per project, 20€ for Balkan countries (ex Yugoslavia). Artist from countries in the Balkan region (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo,the Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia) have a reduced entry fee. Applicants must have a voucher to get the 10€ discount.
