Duggal Photography Contest – Recollection: Reconstructing the Past

duggal-photo-contest-imgPhotographing a culture in the here and now often means photographing the intersection of the present with the past.” – David Duchemin

We often get caught up ‘living in the moment’ that we forget the beauty of change and growth that shapes our present world. Photographs allow us to prove these changes, to preserve a moment in time, to relive memories that may otherwise be lost in the past. Those images that you will remember for a lifetime – the ones that still make an impact regardless of the number of years that have passed – embody appreciation for photography’s element of preserving the past.

In Duggal’s Recollection Photo Contest: Reconstructing the Past, we invite you to recreate an old photograph, artwork or image. The original image can be historical or personal. Both images must be submitted together, as separate files, in order to be considered for the contest.

PH21 Gallery: MOTION PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST 2015

PH-21-gallery-img
A juried international photography exhibition May 28 – June 17, 2015

Photography is a medium of still images; it cannot create the illusion of motion in the way moving images such as film, video or cartoons can. The static nature of the image itself, however, has never prevented photographers from putting motion in the centre of their endeavours. Instead of freezing the moment they often strive for capturing movement and the passing of time. Depicting or expressing motion is a welcome challenge for photographers; it is also the source of some of the most creative images in diverse photographic genres.

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Motion. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this most intriguing topic, and who would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed, and it is independent of generic or stylistic constraints. We are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.

This exhibition will be presented in our new Ráday St. gallery space. Submission deadline: April 21, 2015 midnight (UTC+01, Central European Time)

Eligibility – worldwide 18+

Entry Fee The entry fee is €15.00 for the first 3 images, €20.00 for 5 images, €25.00 for 7 images, €30.00 for 10 images, and €35.00 for 15 images. There is also a special rate for maximum 5 images for students and unwaged persons as well as for applicants from low-income economies. The special fee is €8.00.

Prizes One juror’s choice and up to three honourable mentions will be selected and announced. (Occasionally we also give out an associate’s choice award.) 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. Entrants assume and accept all legal and financial responsibility for any infringement on the privacy rights or copyright
of others, caused by creating or presenting their work in public. PH21 Galley retains the right to exclude from the competition entries that violate the conditions of the competition and ones that violate any human or privacy rights.
