10th International Festival of Photography in Lodz, Poland – Deadline: 15.11.2011



10th International Festival of Photography in Lodz, Poland



Deadline: 15.11.2011

More informationa and application forms:



OUT OF SPACE is an exhibition which will use the city space as a gallery. OUT OF SPACE is to go out of the traditional exhibition area, out of what the audience is accustomed to, out of the standard circle of receivers and out of the known forms of presentation. Send over your photo projects or artistic projects with photography as one of the elements, which can be presented in the city space.

For years, the Grand Prix programme has been one of the main points of Fotofestiwal. It consists of individual exhibitions, selected from among the projects submitted by photographers and curators. Every year, the curator jury chooses 10-12 exhibitions out of about 600. The selected exhibitions are then presented during Fotofestiwal. In May, the most interesting project is awarded with the title of Grand Prix Fotofestiwal. So far, exhibitions have not been linked by a common theme – they were presentations of several new people and interesting subjects. This year, retaining the old formula, we are going to change the form and place of the presentation. The upcoming Grand Prix programme, entitled OUT OF SPACE, will be moved from galleries to the city space of Łódź.



curators: Nina Kassianou, Krzysztof Candrowicz

Sentenced to the cursed, though seemingly only apparent FREEDOM, overloaded with a stream of everyday NEWS, suspended between the reality of MARKETING and the world of the MEDIA, tainted with intensive WORK – we are running away. But are we really trying to escape it all, and if so – where are we running?

In OUT OF LIFE curators would like to ask about creating private and alternative realities – what we gain thanks for them, what we loose? How people escape from the real world and if the photography might be the form of an escape?

VIDEONALE 13. Deadline closed 20 September 2010

Like in the past also at VIDEONALE 13 a team of architects and designers will develop a cutting-edge exhibition architecture to meet the requirements of the reception of media art. For the 13th VIDEONALE about 40 works will be chosen by an international jury of experts and afterwards be presented in a six-week exhibition in Bonn. The show will open with a four-day festival featuring a variety of events. Starting in late summer the works of VIDEONALE 13 will be shown at further art institutions worldwide in the context of VIDEONALE ON TOUR.

VIDA 13.0 Prize – Deadline: 7th November 2010

At a time when the notion of life is once again located in an uncertain domain, a wide range of artistic initiatives come together to illustrate and investigate this phenomenon; they examine the impact on the collective conscience and the way it is manifested in cultural, technological and social thought.

Over the last decade, in the same formal space, VIDA has been bringing together inter-disciplinary projects that respond to this situation. By means of formal strategies that defy the boundaries between existing practices, these projects offer new ways of reflecting on what we understand by life and artificial life.

Fundación Telefónica announces the VIDA 13.0 Art & Artificial Life International Competition, which for the last twelve years has awarded prizes for artistic projects using technological mediums offering innovative approaches to research into artificial life.

The projects may be based on systems which emulate, imitate or speculate on the notion of life through current research and technology. These systems may involve attributes of agency and autonomy which display specific behaviour, are dynamic, react to their surroundings and evolve, and which question the frontiers between what is alive and what is not, between synthetic and organic life.

As in previous years there are two categories to the competition:


In this category VIDA 13.0 will award prizes to artistic ALife projects developed after 2008. The sum of 40,000 Euros will be shared between the projects selected by the jury: First Prize: 18,000 Euros, Second Prize: 14,000 Euros, and Third Prize: 8,000 Euros. In addition seven honourable mentions will be awarded.


In this category VIDA 13.0 helps to fund artistic ALife projects that have not yet been produced. This is aimed at citizens or residents of countries comprising Latin America, Spain and Portugal. The sum of 40,000 Euros will be shared between the selected projects.

The winning projects will be subsequently exhibited at the VIDA Gallery, and may be presented in exhibitions related to art and new technologies organised by Fundación Telefónica or in which it takes part.


Period for submission of projects: from 19th July to 7th November 2010.


The works submitted will be examined by an international panel composed of José-Carlos Mariátegui (Peru), Mónica Bello Bugallo (Spain), Nell Tenhaaf (Canada) Rodrigo Alonso (Argentina), Simon Penny (USA/Australia), Zhang Ga (USA/China) and Francisco Serrano (General Director of Fundación Telefónica).
