Join our latest Call for Talent!

All photographers are welcome to take part and the theme can be responded to playfully, or to the letter. There’s no rights-grabbing – photographers retain full and exclusive rights to their work.

Our final theme of this edition is an OPEN CALL judged by BRIAN PAUL CLAMP of ClampArt Gallery.

For our final month of the current edition there’s no explicit lead… You are free to investigate everything, and to capture anything.

Landscapes, portraits, reportage, conceptual, personal documentary, travel… From spontaneous street moments to meticulous studio set-ups… Inspire us with your technique, vision and creativity.

A picture is worth a thousand words as the old saying goes. Show us that picture…


> On top of the cash prizes, exposure and international exhibitions, all entrants can access group feedback, create a personal, public profile (we feature some in The Collection), and get published in the Journal.
