THEME: Diptych ~ Open Theme | JUROR: Sandrine Hermand-Grisel
A photographic diptych is a work of art that consists of two photographs that are arranged side by side. Diptychs can convey a story by connecting seemingly unrelated images. The use of two photographs side by side can allow the photographer to experiment with different compositions and to create a sense of balance or symmetry. The two images in a diptych can represent duality or opposites. They allow the photographer to explore different themes, narratives, compositions, and contrasts.
Praxis seeks photographic art that explores these concepts. If you haven’t created a diptych this is a great opportunity to experiment with this idea by juxtaposing two images side by side. The submission guidelines for Praxis specify that the diptych must be printable on one sheet of paper and fit into preselected matte sizes. See guidelines. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

THEME: On The Road Again | CURATOR: Dallas Crow
From Robert Frank to Justine Kurland, Jack Kerouac to Thelma & Louise, the road has called out to artists. We're looking for images of interstates, blue highways, back roads, gravel roads, small towns, grand vistas, national parks, tourist traps, motels, waysides, truck stops, adventure, solitude, friendship, and kids in the back seat. Take us on a trip where the journey really is more important than the destination. If you've ever fired up a mixtape or a playlist and hit the open road, show us what you brought back.
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that emphasizes the significance of the journey itself over the final destination. The call encourages artists to share their unique perspectives and experiences of the open road. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission. Curated by Dallas Crow
