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.

Syngenta Photography Award for Pro and Amateur Photographers

The Syngenta Photography Award offers photographers an important platform for outstanding imagery. It also provides the opportunity to explore, through a professional commission, an issue of global significance – such as food security, land preservation, water scarcity or biodiversity.

The Syngenta Photography Award is designed for both professional and amateur photographers.  

There are two categories – the Professional Commission and the Open Competition – with US$65,000 in prizes, including a professional commission. 
   
The winning professional photographer will design and complete their own commission, with a grant of up to US$25,000.
   
Entries are judged by a distinguished international panel.
   
The International Herald Tribune and the New York Times are global media sponsors of the Syngenta Photography Award.
   
Winning photographs will form the backdrop to an exhibition and symposium in London on the issues addressed by the Syngenta Photography Award.

The theme for 2012/2013: Rural-Urban

The theme of the first Syngenta Photography Award explores the relationship and tensions between rural and urban environments.

 Over half of the world’s population now lives in urban areas. Yet rural spaces provide the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat. With competition for land, natural resources, and labor increasing, balancing these tensions is critical.
