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.

Fotograf Open call. Deadline: June 15, 2018

Fotograf Opencall

Fotograf issues an open call for professionals, amateurs, and students who are invited to submit their photo projects that will be published in a printed issue of the Fotograf magazine.

The projects may be related to this year’s theme of the festival and magazine, “Non-work: Occupied by Leisure Time” – where that means any activity on the border between so-called free time and work. What is a leisure time? How does this socially constructed scheme affect our perception? Projects that are not related to the topic, but represent a distinctly defined project of an independent and non-commercial character will be accepted as well.

Submission terms and conditions:

  • Project – images in one PDF file.
  • Text: the project description (max. 1 x A4), the author’s portfolio, and CV (including contact information).
  • Send your projects to email: info@fotografnet.cz and write “OPENCALL” in the email subject line.
  • Any email attachments must be properly identified – the file names should begin with your last name and then first name.
  • The number of projects submitted by one author is not limited.


The deadline for the competition submissions is June 15, 2018.

The participation fee per project is CZK 450 / EUR 18.

Instructions:
Please send the fee to the following bank account number: 2800358798/2010,
IBAN: CZ8420100000002800358798
BIC code/SWIFT: FIOBCZPPXXX
(please add “OPENCALL_surname” in the note)

The four winning projects will be published in the next two issues of Fotograf (October 2018 and May

2019). Fotograf magazine is one of the leading global magazines devoted to photography and contemporary art. It is distributed to 25 countries around the world.

The winner will be chosen by the jury whose members include Pavel Baňka, Jen Kratochvil, Louise Fedotov-Clements, Moritz Neumüller, Josephine Pryde, Tereza Rudolf, Marie Sarycheva and Tereza Zelenková.

The winners will be announced no later than June 28, 2018 on www.fotografmagazine.cz

Open Call for Photo Israel. Deadline: June 15, 2018

Open Call for Artists – 2018 International Photography Festival

We are excited to launch an open call for exhibiting at the 6th international Photography Festival that will take place in November 2018 in Tel-Aviv.
For the first time in this format, we will be happy to see works and explore ideas to be exhibited at the festival. It is also the first time that we invite artists from various media, not only photographers, to submit their proposals.

Artists working with photography, video, performance, and multimedia, from all over the world and in all stages of their career are invited to send proposals for existing or planned works on this year’s theme – relations.
The subject of relations, on the numerous worlds and interpretation associated with it, has always been a central subject matter for artists, curators, and scholars. In the upcoming festival, we wish to explore this theme from different angles, as well as its relevance in today’s world, and the new ways it can be represented.A panel of art professionals will review the proposals and select the participating artists.
The selected works will be exhibited at the festival’s thematic exhibition, or as special projects at the festival.
Submission deadline: June 25, 2018
* An application fee of $15 includes a registration fee and free entrance to the Photography Festival to all submitting artists.
