PhotoIreland Festival 2019: Call for Proposals. Deadline: Mar. 17, 2019

PhotoIreland Foundation invites individuals and organisations to come forward with proposals for the PhotoIreland Festival 2019.

The year 2019 will see the 10th edition of the PhotoIreland Festival bringing to Dublin an ambitious programme running from May to July. May will see the opening of the main exhibitions, while June will be dedicated to an extended educational programme with activities for all. The fireworks are reserved for July, when PhotoIreland Foundation will open the Museum of Contemporary Photography of Ireland in Dublin city centre, on the 4th July. More details will be released in the coming months, but in the meantime, you can find below information about the calls for proposals for the Open and the Museum Programmes.

OPEN PROGRAMME

If you are planning an event during May-June-July relating to Photography, Visual Culture, Critical Thinking, happening anywhere in Ireland, then join the festival celebrations! We welcome submissions from national and international individuals and organisations. All possible formats for events such as exhibitions, installations, performances, films, videos, talks, workshops, etc. are welcome.

All participants must submit their proposals before the strict deadline. Participant events will be featured in the festival catalogue and on the website, promoted through the festival’s social media, and will receive festival catalogues to distribute during the event. The catalogues are also distributed by us nationwide to key locations.
Strict Deadline: midnight 17 March 2019.

To go ahead, please download the OPEN19 Submission Form, gather all the necessary details and fill it in. There is a contribution fee of €125 towards the marketing materials and distribution. Note that you must have secured a venue for your event or exhibition before you submit – if you are looking for a venue, we always recommend to start by looking at the previous PhotoIreland Festival maps. Once you have the venue sorted, email the submission form to pif.submissions@gmail.com

MUSEUM PROGRAMME

To make 2019 more special, we are opening a call for individuals and organisations to come forward with proposals to be included in the educational programme. There is no fee for submitting proposals, and those selected will receive financial and logistics support.

The Museum of Contemporary Photography of Ireland is a practice based research project run by PhotoIreland Foundation that aims to create the ideal prototype space to actively engage with Visual Culture and Critical Thinking today. Over the next years, the museum will present an evolving model that will publicly investigate experimental and critical propositions in aspects relating to Museology, Curation, Cultural Policy and Arts Management.

The research sets an important departure towards a new arena where Art and cultural practices and their socio-political context can be both enjoyed and examined in a richly participatory way, with the use of contemporary methodologies. This project is part of the Critical Academy ongoing research on ‘Photography in Ireland’.

We welcome proposals towards the educational programme for events that will run between 5-30 July 2019, broadly focused on the aforementioned topics of Visual Culture, Critical Thinking, Museology, Curation, Cultural Policy, Arts Management, as much as those aimed at promoting Visual Literacy and Art skills through active participation and Art making.

To go ahead, please download the MUSEUM19 Submission Form, fill in the details and email the submission form to pif.submissions@gmail.com
Strict Deadline: midnight 17 March 2019.

Greetings from Ireland Call for Postcards. Deadline: Nov 9, 2014

Ever since The Library Project arrived to its new location in Temple Bar, we have received countless visits by tourists looking for posters, prints, and postcards with images of Ireland. Across from The Library Project sits one of the busiest souvenir shops in the country, offering the largest selection of merchandise about Ireland you can imagine. It is easy to expect that most of these materials perpetuate a particular representation of Ireland as an imagined fairytale land, divorced from its complex reality, lost between the pun and the stereotype. You may think that is what the tourist is looking for, but many visitors come to us seeking something completely different. We want to join the conversation.PhotoIreland is going to produce its own collection of materials, inviting local and international artists to present their personal interpretation of what Ireland is today. The project will fill the 36 pockets of a postcard stand with 36 different images, by 36 different artists. We will produce just as many posters in a limited series, and a set of 10 fine art prints per image will also be made available. From these 36, a further selection of 12 images will make it to illustrate a calendar for 2015.

For a participation fee of €5, all selected artists will receive a copy of the 2015 calendar, a copy of the Greetings from Ireland postcards set with the 36 selected images, and 40% of sales profits from all posters and prints sold with their image. Greetings from Ireland will be launched with a celebration of all the artists selected at The Library Project on Thursday 20th November, 6pm. The deadline for entries is midnight Sunday 9th November.
