London Street Photography Festival CALL. Deadline: January 5, 2012

2nd International Street Photography Award
Call for entries

There is less than one month left to enter the 2nd International Street Photography Award and the organisers are looking for exceptional international photographers who display a unique style and depth of work in the genre of street photography. The ISP Award is at the forefront of a growing global movement to acknowledge and explore this time-honoured photographic tradition.



In July 2011, Australian photographer Jesse Marlow was flown to London to be officially awarded first prize for the inaugural International Street Photography Award. His work embodies the spirit of street photography and his images echo the festival’s definition perfectly: “Candid photography which captures, explores or questions contemporary society and the relationships between individuals and their surroundings.”

Marlow and twelve finalists were exhibited alongside the first UK exhibition of Vivian Maier throughout the month of July at the stunning German Gymnasium in King’s Cross in London. The Observer featured the Vivian Maier exhibition in the top 10 UK photography exhibitions of 2011.

Zabludowicz Collection Curatorial Open. Deadline Nov. 01, 2011


The Zabludowicz Collection is delighted to announce the second Zabludowicz Collection Curatorial Open, a major opportunity for curators to work with a contemporary art collection of international repute.

Continuing its commitment to working with artists and curators, the Zabludowicz Collection launched this annual initiative to encourage and support experimental curatorial practice. The Curatorial Open invites creative professionals to engage with the collection and propose a project for public exhibition and an accompanying publication and programme of events at 176 Prince of Wales Road to be realised in July and August 2012. The Curatorial Open seeks to actively engage new voices in the discussion around works in the Zabludowicz Collection, encouraging points of view from a variety of disciplines and transcending the confines of contemporary art curating.

Applications are invited from all arts professionals between 1 August and 1 November. Successful proposals will be selected in December by Chris Dercon, Director of Tate Modern, Martin Herbert, Writer, Maria Lind, Director of Tensta Konsthall and Anita Zabludowicz, co-founder of the Zabludowicz Collection.

This initiative builds upon the Zabludowicz Collection’s existing commitment to experimental curatorial practices, including previous projects with international curators and curating students such as The Library of Babel / In and Out of Place with Anna-Catharina Gebbers, Past-Forward with Vincent Honoré and the annual Testing Ground programme produced in collaboration with the MA curating students from the Royal College of Art and Goldsmiths College, London.

The Zabludowicz Collection Curatorial Open is presented in association with Art Review
