Residency Kourmania Open Call. Deadline: July 01, 2016

Since 2009 the artist collective Medea Electronique has organized an annual 10-day experimental artist residency, Koumaria, near Sparta in Greece (the village of Sellasia), focusing on improvisation and new media practices. New-media artists from all over the world, inspired by the Greek natural landscape, come together to create a multicultural and cross-media ‘dialogue’ culminating in a collective presentation both locally and in Athens at the end of the residency.

For our 2016 residency the theme concerns cross-cultural collaborations, migration and borders, culminating in a performance/presentation of the residency artistic outputs as part of a conference/performance series at a major venue in Athens on this theme.

It is worth emphasizing that Koumaria’s focus is collective art creation. While individual residents may well have projects in mind that they hope to realize at Koumaria, they should expect, and desire, substantive input from other residents, and be open to having their projects morph considerably during the course of the residency. While the final output we present need not be one long collective piece, and while the projects forming our outputs need not all involve all residents, Koumaria is not the place for the development and presentation of solo works.

-Deadline: July 01, 2016
-Residency Theme: Diasporas in Dialogue: Multiculturalism, Migration and the Improvisatory Imagination
-Looking for: dancers, performers, video artists, installation artists, sound artists and composers of electronic music.

-Apply to Koumaria Residency:

Workshop with Nicolás Combarro in Manila. Deadline: May 8, 2015

The recent history of contemporary photography and the photobook has undeniably been shaped by Spanish photographers, curators and bookmakers. After the fabulous workshop with Cristina de Middel and Ricardo Cases in India, this time it will be Nicolás Combarro in Manila.

Nicolás is the man who helped Alberto García Alix include video in his work, and a curator involved in Contemporary Spanish photography. As an artist, he uses lens-based and other media in a virtuous dialog, to create installations and interventions in the public space. But most of all, he is an incredible teacher who will show students how to find their own way of expressing themselves in their art, how to go from the single image to a body of work, how to compose a coherent narrative, and how to present all this, in a professional way, to curators and the public. In other words, if you sign up for this workshop, be prepared to forget pretty much everything you knew and take some good days of rest before, because it will be very very intense.

NICOLÁS COMBARRO is coming to Manila to give a MASTERCLASS WORKSHOP from May 19-22 .

FULL PROGRAM AT thousandfold.org/fotosemana2015-masterclassworkshop/


Photographers, Image-Based Artists, Designers and Curators, Practitioners in the field of the Arts, Audio-Visual Communications, New Media,  Art History, Architecture, students of Humanities and Fine Arts, both on a professional and student level.

Lens Culture Exposure Awards. Deadline: Sept. 17, 2011

Only 4 days left to enter the 2011 International Exposure Awards in photography and multimedia.
Deadine for entries is September 17, 2011.

Here is the original message:

Lens Culture International Exposure Awards discover, reward, and promote talented, new, emerging and established photographers and multimedia creators from around the world.

We’re looking for exciting work from every continent, and from diverse points of view: documentary, fine art, nature, photojournalism, activism, street photography, sports, fashion, poetic, personal, abstract and human.

A stellar international jury of photography experts will review and judge every entry submitted.

Three Categories for Awards in 2011:

Multimedia Awards
This year, we introduce an important new category to the Awards competition — Multimedia.

Presentations that combine photography, video, graphics and sound are becoming prominent headline features in the world of social networking, activism, fine art, and online news. Photographers are taking more and more control over how their work is edited, produced and presented. And we want to discover who is creating the most engaging multimedia projects today.

Multimedia from all genres and categories will be considered, including, but not limited to: current events / photojournalism / social issues / activism / fine art / conceptual / cinematic / fiction / storytelling / nature / other.

Maximum length should be 8 minutes. If your full-length multimedia piece is longer than 8 minutes, please submit an edit, or a trailer or teaser of 8 minutes or shorter. Winners will be shown in their full original length. Entry fee: $75.

Portfolio Awards
Submit 10 to 15 photographic images that work well together as a group — thematically, aesthetically, as a story, or simply as a range of your photographic talent. Edit your selections carefully, since this category will be judged on the strength of the group of photographs as a whole, and not as individual photographs. Entry fee: $75.

Single Image Awards
Often, a single powerful photograph captures our attention as important, artistic, meaningful, and memorable. A great photo can stand on its own, demonstrating a remarkable level of visual perception, sensitivity, and creativity. Photographs of all genres and all categories are welcome. Entry fee: $35.

25 Honorable Mention Awards:
25 Honorable Mention photographs or multimedia (chosen by the judges from all categories) will win prominent placement of a single image on the Award Winner’s Page in Lens Culture, including a link to your own personal or professional website. PLUS publication in our deluxe 2011 International Exposure Awards Winners catalog, and the possibility of participation in public exhibitions and screenings around the world.

Enter today!
Applicants must submit their entries online at: http://lensculture.slideroom.com. After you have uploaded your entries and information, you will be asked to pay your submission fee. Our online portal offers additional instruction for submitting work. For complete submission guidelines and rules, please see our FAQs and rules.
