OPEN CALL

Closing: 30 September 2018

“With photography a new language has been created” – Ernst Haas

This time there’s no explicit theme… We’re giving you the freedom to inspire us with your photography, no matter the style, subject matter or genre.
Landscapes, portraits, reportage, conceptual, personal documentary, travel… From spontaneous street moments to meticulous studio set-ups… Show us your technique, vision and creativity.

This month’s judge is Martin Parr

British documentary photographer and Magnum Photos member (and past president) Martin Parr is widely celebrated for his satirical view on modern life, photographing subjects such as mass tourism and global consumerism. He has won a raft of awards including the Sony World Photography ‘Outstanding Contribution to Photography Award’, has acted as artistic director for the New York Photo Festival and Les Rencontres D’Arles, and in 2017 opened the Martin Parr Foundation in his hometown of Bristol, UK.

STREET LIFE

Submission deadline: 31 October 2018

Judge: David Alan Harvey

From the pulsing arteries of a bustling metropolis, to the quiet solitude of its empty backstreets. Glistening glass and steel, against crumbling brickwork and eroded stone. Chance encounters and random moments. From Los Angeles to Lagos; as a stranger in a foreign land or on a habitual stroll in the village you’ve always known. Life exists in the streets. Take us there.

Urbanscapes, observational photography, accidental revelations, street encounters, city scenes… Inspire us with street photography, and the insights it can uncover.
