Uneven Ground

Student Call – Generation Z. Deadline: June 1, 2020

OPEN STUDENT CALL
In addition to the regular open call, Noorderlicht has launched an international Open Student Call for the upcoming festival ‘Generation Z’, to give the generation central to the festival a voice. Students who use lens-based media are asked to express their vision of the future in a single image, in the light of the crisis in which the world finds itself. These images will get a place in the festival.

In recent weeks we have seen a large dose of creative images pass, by people who give substance to their temporary quarantine, who are looking for activities to combat boredom or for ways to speak out. This special time brings to light an unprecedented inventiveness. Humour breaks through the tension, connects and gives us the mental space to put things into perspective.

However, visualizing what this crisis means for us, what it does to us mentally and how it affects our vision of the future is of a completely different order. By letting lens-based students from all over the world reflect on this, we hope to gain insight into the future expectations of a generation. The submitted images will be presented as a futurama in the festival.

SUBMISSIONS
Please note: this is about a single shot futurama. You are asked to make one image, that reflects what the current situation in the world personally does or mean to you. Participating in the call also means participating in the festival. By submitting an image, you give Noorderlicht permission to use your image on its website and social media, of course with credit lines.

Send your submission to pandora@noorderlicht.com before 1 June 2020 and use a file service such as WeTransfer if the image is too large to send as an email attachment.

Image
File format: maximum (native) resolution of your camera, so we can print in large format. RGB, high res JPEG or TIFF, ready to print. The file name contains the name of the author, a title and / or a caption.

What else?
– a brief summary (about 50 words) on the image
– your name and year of birth
– your nationality
– where you currently study visual media
– links to your social media channels
– URL of your website (if applicable)

The Noorderlicht Internationaal Fotofestival 2020 takes place from 18 July till 20 September 2020. The theme of the festival is ‘GENERATION Z’. Dates subject to change.
