Helsinki Photo Festival Call. Deadline: Mar. 30, 2020

About Call

Helsinki Photo Festival is pleased to announce their third open call! Everyone from all over the world is invited to submit their work(s) in the festival theme of 2020: Trust.

We challenge photographers and artists of all ages to share with us the connections you see with our theme, in imaginative, creative expressive interpretation. Artists will need to write as part of their submission an explanation of how their work fits with the theme.

Trust is essential to life, it opens up new and unimagined possibilities. Trust is one of the most prevalent topics in our society.

What is Trust? How can Trust be perceived in visual language? How can we consciously feel Trust? What do we consider trust to be and can it be regained? Can Trust change our life and how would such a transition affect our existence? How can communities acknowledge differences while building unity? As prejudices continue to divide us, how can Trust encourage accountability and solidarity? As institutions lose credibility, the environment is changing critically, what do people do to build and rely on their promises to be taken seriously? What role does truth play to Trust in friendship, family or love? What happens if you lose Trust in society or humanity? In fact, there are many examples, how to interpret and associate with Trust.

We aim to select +50 artists works to exhibit in solo- and group exhibitions during the festival period, July 7th-September 9th 2020. Entries are handled by photography professionals and curators enhancing the programming, aesthetics, artistic and cultural expressions as well as the quality of the overall production.

What winners receive

As a selected artist/photographer of the Trust theme, your work will be exhibited at Helsinki Photo Festival 2020 (7th July to September 9th). The exhibitions will take place in historic landmarks, warehouses, libraries, art centres, galleries, parks and waterfront areas in Helsinki. In addition, we will produce a Nordic Village supporting emerging Nordic photographers and also, will include popup projects at numerous cultural events around Helsinki. All selected photographers have the great opportunity for being promoted to a broad, dedicated audience, critics and curators at the newest photo festival in Northern Europe.

Selected artists/photographers will benefit from:

  • exhibition exposure at the Festival’s main gallery held on 2000m2 in Helsinki’s historic landmark, the Katajanokka Old Customs House and at outdoor locations all around the capital including popup events
  • nordic photographers to be part of a Nordic Village outdoor exhibition at the National Museum of Finland

Call for Papers

Fast Forward: Women in Photography

WOMEN, PHOTOGRAPHY, CONFLICT

Conference 4, Tbilisi, Georgia, 19-20 – September 2020

Tbilisi Photography & Multimedia Museum announces the Georgian edition of Fast Forward: Women in Photography, which is organised in partnership with University for the Creative Arts (UCA) and London College of Communication (LCC) at University of the Arts London Photography (UAL). This international conference will be the central event of the 11th Edition of Tbilisi Photo Festival.

The research project Fast Forward: Women in Photography, aims to explore the work and histories of women photographers, promote opportunities and question ideas dominating the field of photography by initiating thoughtful, new debates. Initiated in 2014 with a panel discussion at Tate Modern, the project has become significant within the world of photography for examining the work of women photographers and for questioning the way that the established canons have been formed.

Following the initial success of the first two conferences at Tate Modern in 2015 and at the National Gallery of Arts in Lithuania in 2017, Fast Forward was awarded a Leverhulme Trust International Network Grant to run a series of research workshops in 6 countries, culminating in the third conference at Tate Modern in 2019.

The theme for the 4th conference, to be held in Tbilisi Georgia, and co convened by Professor Anna Fox and Maria Kapajeva (UCA), Professor Val Williams (UAL/LCC) and the Tbilisi Photography & Multimedia Museum, Georgia, will explore the ways that women photographers have worked in countries affected by conflict. The conference will generate new knowledge within this little- researched area.

As the violation of women’s rights is one of the prominent aspects dominating conflict zones, this theme resonates with many realities encountered by women across the region, including Georgia.

Over the last ten years, in South Caucasian countries such as Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, as well as Iran or the Persian Gulf countries, women photographers have been active in documenting violations of human rights, have advocated for women and initiated real changes. Yet, within the contemporary historiography of photography, their contributions are frequently omitted. Discussion of conflict photography almost always revolves around high action war photography and heavily-dominated by a traditional male perspective.

The 4th conference is calling for papers which explore, but which are not limited to, the following questions.

>> How do women photographers (re)shape our understanding of conflict?

>> To what extent does gender influence photography practice which deals with conflict and its aftermath.?

>> How can we adjust photographic history, to encompass non-Western work by women photographers?

>> In which ways have women’s photographic documentation of human rights violations contributed to social justice?

The conveners are particularly interested in bringing together, and giving voice to, photography professionals, photographers, scholars, curators and editors from the wider region, including the countries of South Caucasus, Ukraine, Turkey, Israel, Iran, Iraq, Palestine, Persian Gulf countries, Jordan, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh.

Deadline for the abstract submission: March 31, midnight GMT.

All applicants will be informed about the selection by May 15.

We hope to provide discretionary funding to selected speakers who require financial support.

Submission regulations:

The abstract submitted must be in English. However, as the working languages of the conference are Georgian and English, the presentation during the conference can be done in one of these two languages.

Please, submit the following documents:

1. 500-word abstract in a Word format, no images.

Please make sure your full name and the title of the paper are at the top of the abstract.

Please name the file as follows: ‘Your surname_Initial of you first name_abstract’ (ex: ‘Smith_J_abstract’)

2. CV in Word or PDF format, no images.
