The Series Award is a special call for entries for bodies of related work (or ‘series’). In contrast to the monthly award which is a ‘single image’ contest (you can of course enter multiple images, but each one is judged on its own merit), the Series Award is for bodies of connected work. It runs annually, and so is open for the entirety of each edition of Life Framer. Results are announced shortly after the close of the final monthly theme of Life Framer. You can find out more about it here.
The Series is open to all Life Framer members. As a member you can also enter 12 consecutive monthly themes (10 images per theme) free of charge.
The rules are the same as the monthly award – you can read them here.
You can only enter the Series Award once (with a single body of work of up to 20 images), and so please consider carefully before doing so. You can submit up to the end of October 2020.
No, but we encourage that you do. It will help us and the judge to understand more about your series during the judging process. You can describe things such as the meaning behind the series, or the process in creating it. A ‘project statement’ can be an important accompaniment to the images.
The solo show will be a collaboration between you, us, our judge, and the gallery. We will guide you through the whole thing. We’re experienced curators, but you will of course be able to input into the process. Gallery costs, printing, mounting, promoting etc. is covered by us up to $3000.
If you don’t have a series of work we’re afraid you can’t enter this one. But think creatively – a series of work doesn’t necessarily have to be all shot at the same location or time. It just needs a thematic or visual thread. So maybe you do!
