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.

Call for Paper on Evidence. Format Festival Conference. Deadline: Feb. 28, 2015


FORMAT International Photography Festival is pleased to invite submissions to its interdisciplinary one day conference, organised in partnership with the Digital and Material Arts Research Centre, University of Derby.

The festival conference will be held at QUAD, on the 10th April 2015, during the closing weekend of FORMAT15 and will provide an opportunity to explore and interrogate the festival theme of evidence, in relation to work using film, photography and the moving image.

Evidence is the mainstay of how we decide what is and is not true and since its invention in the 19th century, photography has been crucial to the collection, recording and display of evidence. Today, millions of seemingly insignificant moments are captured on cameras, mobile phones and tablets, generating a trail of our everyday lives and proof of our existence.

The FORMAT15 conference seeks proposals that can offer an interpretation of the importance of evidence and its relationship to ideas of authenticity, photojournalism and the political. Selected presentations will be considered for a post conference publication.

Proposals in the form of maximum 300 word abstracts on the following themes can be submitted in three categories:
Single Presentation:10 minute talk
Group Session:15 minute presentation per speaker as part of a group panel discussion
Full paper: max. 45 minute presentation
Please send submissions via email to Professor Chris White (c.white@derby.ac.uk)


Selected speakers will be given free access to the full day of talks and presentations.

Please visit the festival website: www.formatfestival.com whats-on for information about tickets and booking details. A full list of speakers will be published on the festival website.

Stay tuned for more updates on FORMAT15: EVIDENCE and we look forward to seeing many of you in Derby during the festival: 13th March – 12th April 2015

Rules for the call



Call for Entries: Photographic-based work in various formats. Deadline: Feb 17, 2013

Artists based in the Northwest of the US are invited to submit work for ‘OFF THE PLAIN: Contemporary NW Photography‘ curated by TJ Norris for Place.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: February 17th (11:59PM PST – no late entries)
EXHIBITION: April 16 – June 1, 2013
ENTRY FEE: $10, Up to 6 images per artist
(fee used for any associated printed material)

WHAT: Seeking contemporary photographic-based work in various formats, other than traditional 2D. Individual artists, duos or teams are welcome to submit.


‘Off the Plain’ will feature up to a dozen Northwest-based contemporary artists who have developed photographic works that stretch beyond traditional two-dimensional formats.

As an examination of the great Northwest as a physical location for exploration and experimentation, this show will offer work that is outside the norm, peeling back one thin layer of what is happening right now in this vast elusive and beautiful region. By offering camera-based work that is beyond 2D, audiences will experience a greater appreciation for the photographic arts.

The exhibition will open in April 2013 which is Photography Month in Portland, OR (also see: Photolucida). In this call for entries we wish to review works that utilize and play on space, form and dimension. These may include: sculptural work, assemblage, 3D imaging, installation, kinetic work, multi-paneled pieces, book arts, lightboxes, tableaux, holography/lenticular, moving images or projections (the gallery is equipped with a single projector – if you are submitting video-based work you may use one of your six images as a link to a video, under 10 minutes in length preferred), and the like. The work must be primarily photographic in nature and somehow inform or activate a sense of space. Up to a dozen artists will be selected from this call for entries who focus on mass, volume and change/shift in their photographic work.

The artists in this show command the ability to forgo the generic conventions of the medium. Subject matter will vary from abstraction to conceptual to narrative, though each artist included will be represented by up to five pieces each (depending on scale and context) in the sizable exhibition space – all created within the past three years. The public will be invited to a round table discussion about the “geometric ergonomics of photography in the 21st century” – artists from the exhibition will be selected to participate. If funds are available a printed brochure or catalogue will also be available. A larger built-in international audience of photographic-based professionals will be in Portland to participate in Photolucida’s events, and this will become a focal part of this biennial fair. Partial funding graciously provided by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.

about the awards

The Amnesty Media Awards were established in 1992 to celebrate the best in human rights journalism. From print and broadcast journalism to photographic and digital content, they recognise the vital role journalists play, and the serious risks they face, in highlighting injustice around the world.


The awards honour established journalists and photographers as well as rising stars.

Winners in 2011 included Channel 4 News, More 4, CNN International, BBC Radio 4, the Independent, the Guardian, GQ Magazine, Marie Claire, Guardian Weekend Magazine and the Sunday Times Magazine. The event finished with a short address by Aung San Suu Kyi who spoke of the “great importance” of the media in “promoting the cause of democracy and human rights in Burma”.




We are looking for real innovation in digital news delivery. Entries must be digitally “native”, using new and creative ways to bring human rights issues to growing online audiences.


Television News

Television news continues to play a vital role in keeping human rights issues in the public eye. We’re looking for a news item (or up to three news items if part of a series), broadcast predominantly to a UK audience or  hosted online.



Documentaries provide one of the most powerful and most accessible ways to bring complex human rights issues to wide audiences. Entries should be a single programme of 20-120 minutes duration, broadcast predominantly to a UK audience, or given a theatrical screening in the UK.



Radio has the ability to take large audiences on some incredible journeys. Entries in this category should be either a news item, podcast, a single programme, or a series  of up to 120 minutes total duration, broadcast predominantly to a UK audience.


International TV and radio

We’re looking for innovative programming on an international radio or TV channel. Guidelines as for a television or radio entry (above) but seen or heard on a channel that has a broadcast platform in the UK and is available internationally.


National newspapers

National newspapers have broken numerous stories this year with far-reaching repercussions, demonstrating their enduring impact and influence. Entries in this category should be an article or series of up to three articles published in a UK newspaper.


Magazines (two awards)

A vividly written and illustrated magazine article can have a profound effect on its readers, giving an in-depth assessment of an issue in an eye-catching and unforgettable way. We are looking for an article, or series of up to three articles, published in a consumer magazine, or a magazine-style weekly or monthly UK newspaper supplement.


Nations and regions

Open to print or broadcast entries from Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the English regions:

Photojournalists have brought us some of the most memorable and iconic images of our time, putting a human face to human rights issues. Entries should include a series of up to six photographs from a portfolio, all or part of which has been published or publicly exhibited in the UK.


Gaby Rado Memorial Award

For an up-and-coming journalist who has covered national or international human rights stories in broadcast, online or print media for less than five years.
