LANDSKRONA FOTO DUMMY AWARD 2017
During Photo Book Day on September 9th there will be an Open Book Dummy Review. Here four photographers will be able to present their ongoing book projects to an audience and a panel. Each photographer will first make a short presentation of his or her project, which will be followed by a conversation about the idea.
The winner, the photographer with the most interesting idea for a photo book, will then be selected by an international jury.
The winner will be revealed/presented on stage as one of the closing events of the Photo Book Day.
Landskrona Foto Dummy Award enables the winner to have his or her book project published by Breadfield Press and Landskrona Foto during 2018.
The prize includes all expenses for book production such as design, printing and distribution. The photographer will also receive a large number of books to dispose over and sell. The book will be printed in 700 copies.
The selected dummies will also be on display as an exhibition in the Tyghuset foyer during the days of the festival.
The event costs 300 Sek (approx 30 Euro) to enter. This fee will go solely to aid the final four selected travel costs. Send a completed application together with your dummy in PDF format before April 15, 2017.

FOOD OF WAR
The Chernobyl Project 2016-2017 – Open Call
Food of War is a Multidisciplinary Art Collective dedicated to explore the relation between Food and War through art. Food of War is a Non-Profit initiative whose aims include creating art and events in order to raise awareness about the armed conflicts around the world, to promote the artists who develop their work around this subject and encourage the use of food as part of the viewer’s experience.
The Chernobyl Project 2016-2017
The Chernobyl Disaster occurred in 1986 during the Cold War and it alarmed the whole Europe about what was safe to eat and drink. Food of War considers of great relevance the consequences of this incident at the table of several European Countries where the radioactive cloud passed or might have had.
As a commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl Disaster, Food of War is developing a touring exhibition project for 2016-2017 that follows the trail of the radioactive cloud over Europe. The exhibition involves artists from Ukraine, Belarus, as well as from other EU nationalities.
Food of War is calling all visual artists (individual/collectives) living and working in Ukraine, Belarus, Germany, Sweden and Ireland to submit proposals for this exhibition. We are not interested in the direct causes of the accident but in exploring how it affected the continent and beyond in terms of consumption of food.
The proposals must include a description of the work (which can be in process or finished), rationale behind the work and a maximum of 3 images of the work. We welcome all mediums and artwork dimensions. Artists/collectives are also required to send a biography with a maximum of 5 images of relevant work or a link to the artists’ website.
Files must be sent as JPEG (low resolution) or PDF to email@example.com . Deadline ends 20th September 2015.
Selected artists will be notified by 28th September 2015.
