Call for entries – Stories

PH-21-gallery-imagePhotographs are often associated with the concept of freezing time. Nevertheless, photography has always been a sensitive storytelling medium as well. Looking at a photograph may allow for understanding much about the past leading up to the captured moment; it may also enable the viewer to imagine the possible futures evolving from the frozen record of the here and now. Photographers portraying people, objects, and places can tell us inspiring stories, provided that we take the time to study and interpret the photographs. A narrative told with a single image is a most exciting challenge for the photographer
and the viewer alike, and hopefully we appreciate these works with the care and curiosity they deserve.

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Stories. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who think that their submitted images tell us a story, and who would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed; it may be expressed visually on personal or social levels, literally or in abstract, symbolic ways. Stories can be told about persons, communities, objects, and places as well. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.

Eligibility Worldwide, 18+

Entry Fee
The entry fee is €10.00 for the first 3 images, €15.00 for 5 images, €20.00 for 7 images, €25.00 for 10 images, and €30.00 for 15 images.

Prizes

One juror’s choice and up to three honourable mentions will be selected and announced. The juror’s choice receives three free
entries for any upcoming themed group exhibition calls at PH21 Gallery. (Each free entry includes up to 15 images.) The webpage and the print catalogue of the exhibition will include a juror’s review; it provides a detailed review of the juror’s choice, shorter evaluations of the honourable mentions, and a one-sentence highlight of some of the other photographs included in the exhibition. (Please visit the pages of our recent exhibitions for examples.)

Limit of Entry 15 images

Copyright
All copyrights and ownership of the works are retained by the photographer.

Usage of Entry
By entering, entrants automatically accept the conditions of the competition; they grant PH21 Gallery nonexclusive right to use and reproduce submitted photographs (with the name of the photographer and the title of the work indicated) for promotional (e.g.: website of the Gallery, catalogue) and exhibition purposes. No royalties or compensation will be paid for these purposes.
