In its truest form, portraiture is about human connection. A portrait tells a lot about a person. Their emotion. Their grit. Their story. There is no other genre of photography that displays human vulnerability in its rawest form.

Dallas Center for Photography invites you to enter this juried competition with photographs that illustrate this human connection. They can be self-portraits or portraits of others; posed or candid; studio or environmental; camera original or digital composite.

Selections will be featured in a virtual exhibition on the DCP website. We are also planning to have an exhibition catalog in book form that will be available for purchase.

DCP will host a virtual opening reception on Friday, December 11 that is free and open to the public. Juror Jennifer Spelman will be in attendance to discuss the winning entries. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third winners.

Juror: Layne Kennedy

Through the visual representation of abandoned spaces, artifacts of history are at once fresh and new, ancient and decayed. The past continues to live in these forsaken, ruined, or empty spaces and we ask— Who were the people who lived and worked here? What were their lives like? What were their stories? What happened to them in these spaces?

​Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the visual and social significance of abandoned space - where derelict factories, churches, private houses or other empty places serve as the basis for creative investigation. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

CALL FOR ENTRY: PROCESSING 2020
Photographic works reckoning with the personal and collective events of 2020


Juror: SHAWN THEODORE

* Exhibit Dates: January 15 - March 21
* Philadelphia-area artists
* Analog Processes only
* Free Entry

Deadline: DECEMBER 1


ABOUT THE HALIDE PROJECT:

The Halide Project is a volunteer-run nonprofit, founded in 2015, dedicated to supporting the continued practice and appreciation of traditional and historic photographic processes through exhibitions, artist-led workshops, and an upcoming community darkroom.
 

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

Processing 2020 will showcase analog photographic works made by Philadelphia-area artists in response to the events of this historic year. The pandemic has forced many to stay at home, while others risk their health and safety to perform essential work, and it has left millions unemployed. The concept of “hero” is being redefined and democracy is being tested. People continue to take to the streets to protest police brutality and injustice. We are missing friends and family, and grieving those lost.

How did you respond photographically to the events of 2020? Are you inspired by feelings of hope, sorrow, anger, or resolve? Did you push your artistic boundaries or find yourself creatively challenged? We want to see the work you have produced in 2020 and to share a breadth of responses to crises both personal and collective.

Selected works will be included in an exhibit held at The Halide Project in Philadelphia from January 15 through March 21, 2021, as well as in a virtual exhibition, social media features, and a full-color printed catalog. All selected artists will receive a copy of the catalog, with additional copies available for a donation. All entries, regardless of selection, are archived and referenced for future exhibition opportunities.

The gallery will be open by appointment and with safety guidelines. In the event that an in-person exhibition is not possible, the show will be presented virtually.
 

ABOUT THE JUROR:

Shawn Theodore is an award-winning, widely exhibited and published photographer whose work opens broad conversations regarding the role of the photographer in the shaping of agency and imagery, engages in new forms of storytelling, and impacts the trajectory of the collective black consciousness. Shawn is a Senior Lecturer at the University of the Arts, Board of Trustees member and Marketing and Communications Director of Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, and the Director of PARISTEXASLA.

SE Center for Photography Call for Entry

Shades of Black & White '21

  • | Start Date: 10/5/2020 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 12/6/2020 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $6.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

The SE Center for Photography is looking for Shades of Black and White. For the first 100 years of photography monochrome was the only choice. When asked to name a fine art photographer, one usually thinks of those of 1930s-70s, masters of black and  white, shadow and light, form and contrast. The photographers of today turn to shades of black and white for the same expressive ability of monochrome and we're looking for the best.

 Black-and-white or toned, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

 

Our juror for Shades is Michael Kirchoff. Michael has spent his years capturing the still image of people, cultures, and landscapes from around the world, to around the block, with a very unique and distinctive style. A native Californian, Michael resides in Los Angeles, though equally at home trudging through Redwood forests, riding the rails deep into Siberia, or navigating the chaotic streets of Tokyo. He photographs with many types of cameras and film, from a clunky toy camera to the latest digital model, using each as a tool for a specific use. 

 

35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date. In addition, selected images are featured in the SE Center social media accounts (FB, IG, Twitter) and an archived, online slide show. A video walkthrough of each exhibition is also featured and archived.Openings are timed to coincide with Greenville, South Carolina's First Fridays, a celebration of art, food and music.  

Special Note: There is the possibility Shades of Black and White will be an online virtual exhibition only. If this is the case, 50 images will be featured in the online show and the catalog.


Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center Call for Entry

Anthologies

  • | Start Date: 10/16/2020 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 12/15/2020 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $30.00 USD per set
  • | Additional Entries: $20.00 USD per set
  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Anthologies 

Praxis Gallery is inaugurating a triennial, small group exhibition featuring narrative based collections of photographic art limited to six artists with four images each. The title of the show, Anthologies, is derived from Greek meaning “to gather, or collect”. In this precise sense Praxis Gallery seeks to explore the manner in which photographic artists gather and organize images into collections - thereby creating meaning. However, this is not an exercise in sequencing images or linear chronologies; it is more of an interpretive exploration of the interdependence of each image vis a vis the collective meaning of the group of images as a whole - indulging the viewer to extract their own subjectivities, searching for meaning out of collected images that may seem meandering, anfractuous and excursionary – as much as they may also seem explicit and absolute in substance.

​These stories may take any shape or form; they may be documentary, drama, fantasy, myth, literal or ephemeral, poetic or political - just to name a few iterations of the theme. All themes, genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Yosemite Renaissance 36 - Call to Artists

The Yosemite Renaissance Exhibition is an annual exhibit that offers an opportunity for artists inspired by Yosemite and the California Sierra Nevada region to display and promote their art.

Philosophy and Approach

For over 150 years, artists have played an important role in the establishment of our state and national parks, inspiring people to visit iconic natural sites, and to protect our natural resources. 

Subject matter must be related to the landscape, environment, wildlife and people of Yosemite National Park and the Sierra Nevada region. Both representational and non-representational submissions are allowed. We encourage artist who apply to celebrate the beauty and wonder of nature through art, but also to consider and explore environmental issues, ecology, biology, forestry, current events, political, spiritual and cultural themes.

Contributing artists should be aware of the geographic range of the show. While the nexus of the exhibit is Yosemite, the scope of the show also includes Sequoia National Park, Sierra National Forest, Ansel Adams Wilderness, Mono Lake, Bodie, the White Mountains, and more. The high Sierra, east side and west side foothills and canyons from Lake Tahoe to Tehachapi are all included! The area is huge, consisting of thousands of acres of rugged peaks, deep valleys, forests, lakes and streams.  If your work is inspired by these places, it will be considered.

Mastery of traditional media, technical expertise, style and personal vision are important factors in the selection process. Yosemite Renaissance also encourages innovation. Jurors will consider the use of new tools, technologies, materials and techniques.

Juror | Aline Smithson

‘An abstract photograph draws away from that which is realistic or literal. It draws away from natural appearances and recognizable subjects in the actual world. Some people even say it departs from true meaning, existence, and reality itself. It stands apart from the concrete whole with its purpose instead depending on conceptual meaning and intrinsic form.' John Suler

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the world through an abstracted lens; utilizing elements of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and line to express meaning outside of traditional representational and documentary styles of photography. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Hawkeye Alumni Art Show
The Signal and The Noise
 

Dear Hawkeye Community College Alumni,

This winter, Hawkeye Community College will be holding its first alumni art show, and would like to invite you to take part. This curated show will be on display at the Hawkeye Community College Van G. Miller Adult Learning Center in the third floor Art Gallery from December 2020 - February 2021. This call for entry is for artwork which has been inspired by or created in response to recent world events, by our former students and alumni. 

Signal and Noise are terms which reference the ability of a message to be detected above its background. The signal is the meaningful information that you're trying to communicate. The noise is that which interferes with the message being delivered clearly, such as background noise or static. Imagine trying to tune into a radio station. 

In this instance, your artwork becomes the signal, or the message that you are trying to communicate across the noise, which may be the chaos, trauma, and unrest of the world around you.  

Preference will be given to pieces which speak to this idea. Please be sure to note the theme and/or inspiration for your piece in the Artist's Statement section of your submission.

“My dear fellow women photographers! Let’s make the best work we can make. Let’s let our voices be heard. let us change the world with our beauties and complexities, our subtleties, with our stories, our experiences, our points of view. Our love, compassion. anger, and passions. Our bodies, and experiences. And yes, our opinions, our decisions!

 I can’t wait to see your work and to see and listen to your images.”

Our Juror, Elinor Carucci graduated in 1995 from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design with a degree in photography, and moved to New York that same year. In a relatively short amount of time, her work has been included in an impressive amount of solo and group exhibitions worldwide, solo shows include Edwynn Houk gallery, Fifty One Fine Art Gallery, James Hyman and Gagosian Gallery, London among others and group show include The Museum of Modern Art New York and The Photographers' Gallery, London.

35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date. In addition, selected images are featured in the SE Center social media accounts (FB, IG, Twitter) and an archived, online slide show.

The click of the shutter freezes a moment in time. And that moment is what we often remember as fact. But what about the moment before and the moment after the shutter was clicked, that complex sequence of events? Are our memories being deceived, for we know that they are infused with our personal experiences.

As Ian McDonald has written, "Imaginings too easily become memories, memories imaginings."
For this call, we are looking to suggest the illusory aspect of memory, that intersection of reality and illusion.

Black-and-white or color, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Our Juror, Fran Forman, held a succession of positions in the field of design, and was an art director at AOL Time Warner, where she designed the preeminent web site devoted to African American culture. Between professional life and raising her two daughters, Fran continued to create her personal art, combining her illustrative and photographic skills with a passion for surrealism, paradox, illusion, assemblage, and the dislocations of time and place.

35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date.

”The Annual Spring Members Show

Submission Deadline:  
Saturday, January 11, 2021
11:59 PM Eastern Time.

See Full Prospectus

This past year has given us something very precious: Time. Time to tend internal landscapes. Time to slow down and closely note what’s around us and near to us. Time to think about what’s really important. What makes us pause, stop, lean in, and look more closely.

IMPORTANT DETAILS: Everything has changed, including this year’s Rocky Neck Now. We’ll be online-only (www.RNACExhibitions.com) but instead of one big show, we’ll divide submitted work into two consecutive shows that best exhibit our members’ work. We’ve chosen a designer to select works that make a strong statement in relation to each other and which will make for compelling online pages, ones that will make viewers, well, stop and look.

Artists are asked to submit up to three, high-quality photographs of their work; we guarantee one piece will be used in at least one of the shows comprising 2021 Rocky Neck Now. 2D work can be representational, abstract, in water media, oil, graphite, encaustic, mixed media, photographs and prints. 3D work can encompass jewelry, ceramics and sculpture. Submissions of abstract or narrative digital moving-image works of up to 3 minutes’ duration are also welcome.

ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY

Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual

reality, but instead use shapes, colors, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.

The early days of photography centered on true to life imagery i.e. family portraits, images of streets, towns, mansions...  Over time photographers expanded their vision to more moody images, ultimately to where photography is today; an all encompassing art form, generated by camera and lens, and producing a vast sampling of imagery from reality to less recognizable abstracts.

This call is about the abstracts; those images that are not instantly identified as that person, that thing, etc.  It doesn't matter if you photograph something abstract or create the abstraction through photographic processes. If it is a macro shot, image of a small area on a graffiti wall, or fanciful result of manipulation, if the resulting image is abstract it works.   

As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.

Theme | Words, Words, Words

Juror | Dallas Crow

The old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” seems to suggest that a photograph transcends language, but words have been a key part of many important photographers’ work—from the billboards and signs in many Walker Evans’ photos to Lee Friedlander’s 2019 book, Signs, for example.   The interplay of language and image can create a vivid sense of tension, irony, or poignance. The size and shapes of a font are visual aspects that can carry as much weight as any other aspect in the frame.

Praxis seeks submissions of photographic art that includes written language as a fundamental aspect of the composition. The text may be in the form of signs or fragments of signs, handwriting scrawled over the photo, graffiti, palimpsests, just to name a few iterations of the theme. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Theme | MONO - KROMATIK

Juror | ------------------

Half a century after the advent of color film, black and white & monochromatic photography continues to capture our collective imagination.  Utilizing  tone,  contrast,  texture   and   shape, monochromatic photography strips its subject to only the most essential visual elements; revealing  a  sense of  soul,  substance  and meaning – separate from the shifting sentiments, symbolism and cultural associations of color imagery.

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that demonstrate the fundamental qualities that make black and white & monochromatic  photography an enduring, contemporary  art form. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Sierra Art Trails 2020 has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Call to Artists for the 18th annual Sierra Art Trails will begin Feb 1st, 2021.  

We are excited to share 18 years of experience with our artists, patrons and supporters!  

The cost to participate as an artist is $150 USD, $25 due when applying, and the $125 balance due upon acceptance.

The Exhibit Prosepectus is available on the Sierra Art Trails website at https://sierraarttrails.org//sierra-art-trails-prospectus/ 

The exhibit is the largest art event in our area, showcasing a wide range of fine art and fine craft in communities throughout Eastern Madera and Mariposa Counties.

The region encompassed by the show includes Oakhurst, Coarsegold, North Fork, Yosemite Lakes Park , and communities along Highway 49 from Ahwahnee to Mariposa. The show takes place in artist’s studios, homes, art galleries, wineries, and other businesses throughout the area.

Sierra Art Trails is open to visual artists and artisans working in all media including but not limited to; painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, photography, printmaking, mixed media, papermaking, woodcarving, digital art, jewelry, textile arts, and art glass.  Mass produced crafts, gift items, etc. will not be accepted.

Sierra Art Trails is open to both local artists and artists from outside the area.  Artists with studios located in Eastern Madera and Mariposa Counties are encouraged to show in their home studios, and to share their show sites with others.

The planning committee will work with artists who do not have access to a suitable show site to help them find a location to show their work.  First consideration is given to artists living within the area, but the show is open to any artist interested in participating in the event, regardless of where they live.

Artists must be Present to Participate - Artists must be present at their sites both Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm. Friday is an optional day for participating artists. 

Since our first exhibit in 2003, Sierra Art Trails has built a dedicated audience excited to attend year after year. In addition to visiting with the artists and purchasing works directly from the people who create them, visitors are encouraged to explore our communities, patronize our hotels and restaurants, and learn more about our area.

As an artist, there are many reasons to consider applying for the show. Participating artists are featured in the tour catalog, included in a month-long Preview Exhibit, and benefit from an extensive advertising campaign.  While successful sales are important, the promotional exposure alone is well worth the cost of participation.  Networking opportunities, offers to participate in other exhibits, and post show sales often result from participation in Sierra Art Trails.

Artists interested in applying can view the complete prospectus, and find general information on our website at https://sierraarttrails.org//sierra-art-trails-prospectus/

Theme | Liquid ~ Sky

Theme | Liquid ~ Sky

Juror | ---------------

Liquid conforms to the shape of its container. The sky is an abstract sphere, centered on the earth. Liquid, Water, Sky and the liminal space between are by definition poetic and symbolic. Yet there are infinite iterations of liquid & sky: consider our human drive to master and contain liquids (pools, levies, faucets and bottles); idiomatic lamentations of “spilt milk” or “water under the bridge”– while also reaching upward in towering buildings, air planes, and rockets pushing skyward.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the ideas of liquid and sky in their myriad iterations; from landscapes to still life – from scientific to conceptual, Praxis seeks a broadly interpreted investigation of these forever flowing, forever ethereal ideas. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Theme | THE STREETS

Juror | -------------------

"Street Photography became recognized as a genre in its own right during the early 1930s. Street Photography is unique in the way it is associated with the photographer's skill in capturing something of the mystery and aura of everyday city living. The Street Photographer is then often likened to the historical figure of the flâneur: namely someone who mingles anonymously amongst the crowd observing and recording the ways the unsuspecting city

dweller interacts with his or her environment". www.theartstory.org

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the genre of street photography from all angles, including people, urban structure, and documentary subject matter. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Theme | The Shadow Aspect

 

Juror| -----------------
 

‘Most people think that shadows follow, precede, surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories.’ Ellie Wiesel. 

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the formal, conceptual and metaphoric implications of the shadow. Submissions may focus on the shadow as pure visual form expressed through the creation of line, shape, pattern and texture. They may also examine the cultural and psychological implications of the shadow - exploring ideas of foreboding, internal conflict, passages into the unconsciousness, or other ephemeral interpretations. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Theme | The Sublime Landscape

  • | End Date: 8/31/2021 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Theme | The Sublime Landscape

Juror | --------------

The sublime landscape is defined as having the quality of such greatness, magnitude or intensity, whether physical, metaphysical, moral, aesthetic or spiritual, that our ability to perceive or comprehend it is temporarily overwhelmed. According to aesthetic philosophy, the sublime landscapes can include any of five visual components: 1) great ideas, 2) passion, 3) the appropriate use of figures, 4) the right aesthetic diction, and 5) a skillful composition. 

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic artwork that explores the many iterations of this idea. We encourage a broad, interpretive, and personal investigation of the sublime landscape. All capture types, genres, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Theme | OPEN THEME

Juror | ------------------

“The Photograph is an extended, loaded evidence — as if it caricatured not the figure of what it represents but its very existence ... The Photograph then becomes a bizarre medium, a new form of hallucination: false on the level of perception, true on the level of time: a temporal hallucination, so to speak, a modest shared hallucination (on the one hand 'it is not there,' on the other 'but it has indeed been'): a mad image, chafed by reality.” Roland Barthes

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art of any genre and any subject matter that represents the artist’s endeavor to reveal through the photographic process a personal declaration of visual significance - be it a celebration of pure aesthetic formalism, of humor or conflict - of fiction or fact - or any other literal or ephemeral lens based investigation. All subject matters, genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Theme | Sensuous Geographies : The Nude

Juror | ----------------

​The nude form has been portrayed in art throughout history, from the classical era to the enlightenment and the modern era. The nude figure in western art - specifically in photography - has expressed ideals of female and male beauty along with other human qualities including life, energy, and an array of complicated human emotions.

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the nude in any of its varied styles including: figure studies, environmental nudes, implied nudes and erotica - just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre. All capture types, genres, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Theme | MAKING STRANGE

Juror|------------
 

How do we document what happens and recurs everyday: the banal, the common, the ordinary? Can we rescue astonishment from the forgotten obvious by finding unexplored perspectives to depict our common places and familiar activities in startling and engrossing new ways?

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that search for the iconic and ironic in the everyday world around us; that portray the people, places and things which have become ordinary to us in new, imaginative and expressive ways. All genres interpretations, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Theme | THE STILL LIFE

  • | Start Date: 12/1/2021 12:00:00 AM (PT)

  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: Praxis Gallery | Photographic Arts Center

Theme | THE STILL LIFE

Juror | --------------

Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer extensive leeway and precise control in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. Still life photography is a demanding genre, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with composition and design skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them. 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that investigates the genre of the Still Life. Submissions may explore classical to conceptual aspects of the still life, photographing object arrangements that intrigue, engage or entertain the viewer. All subject matters, all genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
