Hello Moritz
We’d be very grateful for any help you can offer us in spreading the word through your networks about a great opportunity we have for photographers and for artists using photography.
Deadline is this Friday 7 July 2017.
Our next Photoworks Annual, to be published in November, will explore how photography and visual culture can be used to foreground LGBTQ+ rights.
The international photography and visual culture journal, Photoworks Annual, is known for showcasing emerging talents alongside established names and for pairing writing from the forefront of photographic thinking with expertise from beyond the conventional art world.
The Editors welcome new or previously unpublished (in print), fully resolved projects, from UK and international artists at any stage of their career. Four projects will be published alongside an essay about the selected works, commissioned from a high-profile writer plus a number of short-listed entries will be selected for additional online publication.

FIFTH EDITION

Slideshow Projection curated by Yumi Goto (Reminders Photography Stronghold) and Emmeline Yong (Objectifs)

Submission Deadline: 10 July 2017

Call for Submissions 2017: Guidelines
Asian women photographers are invited to submit work for inclusion in a slideshow curated by Yumi Goto (of Reminders Project and Photography Stronghold) and Emmeline Yong (Objectifs). The slideshow projection will be part of the Women in Film & Photography Showcase at Objectifs (Singapore), 11 Oct to 19 Nov 2017.
The Women in Film & Photography Showcase at Objectifs is a tribute to the artists, photographers and filmmakers who have created works that tell stories with impact, break boundaries and inspire us.

The photo essays, series and bodies of submitted work may be about any issue, event or person but must have been photographed in the applicant¹s native country. Completed bodies of work and ongoing projects are both acceptable.

Applicants who are ethnically Asian but were born outside of Asia are also eligible, but must submit a body of work photographed in their forefathers country. We have received numerous questions about this stipulation, so would like to provide the following random examples:

1. A woman brought up in France but born in Cambodia may submit work from Cambodia.

2. An American woman with a Chinese mother and Filipino father may submit work from China or the Philippines.

3. A half­-Asian woman is also eligible.

See below for a list of Asian countries*.

Approximately 10 to 20 works will be selected for the slideshow projection, to be screened during an evening of the showcase at Objectifs. The slideshow may also travel to other festivals, with the permission of the participating photographers.

There are no participation fees and production of the slideshow will be undertaken by Objectifs. Photographers may submit more than one body of work for consideration. However, you must submit each one as a new entry.
