Call for Submissions: Journal for Artistic Research (JAR). Deadline: Sept. 6, 2018.

JAR invites submissions from all fields and disciplines in which artistic research may be relevant, including areas that are not usually conceived of as artistic. We welcome submissions from practitioners with or without academic affiliations. JAR’s format for publishing artistic research, the exposition, invites authors to combine text, image, film, and audio material on expandable web pages, challenging the dominance of writing in traditional academic research. Submissions in multiple languages are accepted, if accompanied by an English translation, which will act as master version. Multilingual expositions are also welcome as long as translations are provided.
The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) is an international, online, Open Access and peer-reviewed journal that disseminates artistic research from all disciplines. JAR invites the ever-increasing number of artistic researchers to develop what for the sciences and humanities are standard academic publication procedures. It serves as a meeting point of diverse practices and methodologies in a field that has become a worldwide movement with many local activities. JAR provides a digital platform where multiple methods, media and articulations may function together to generate insights in artistic research endeavours. It seeks to promote expositions of practice as research. In JAR artistic research is viewed as a developing field where research and art are positioned as mutually influential. Recognising that the field is ever developing and expanding, JAR remains open to continued re-articulations of its publishing criteria.

The JAR Network further facilitates exchange among the artistic research community. This part of the site is an extension of JAR rather than part of the peer reviewed journal. In the Network we publish writing that actively responds to issues in the field, allowing JAR to give focus to developments and make public some of the important discussions that artistic researchers have in their own local contexts.

For submissions information, and advice on whether your research is suitable for JAR, contact the Managing Editor, using the web contact form.

Submission Requirements

JAR works with an international editorial board and a large panel of peer-reviewers. Editor in Chief: Michael Schwab – Peer Review Editor: Julian Klein. Editorial Board: Alex Arteaga, Annette Arlander, Lucia D’Errico, Barnaby Drabble, Mika Elo, Azadeh Fatehrad, Yara Guasque, Julian Klein and Mareli Stolp.

JAR is published by the Society for Artistic Research (SAR), an independent, non-profit association. You can support JAR by becoming an individual or institutional member of SAR. More information can be found here.

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.
