Self, Others

Photo Place Gallery

Middlebury, VT

A great portrait reveals something of the depth, history, and emotional state of the subject, at least as captured in a single moment in time. Although many portraits zero in on the face, many fine images don’t show the face at all, instead using light, gesture, context, and other nuances of expression to create an informative portrait.

For this exhibit we seek portraits, self- or otherwise, that go beyond the surface to explore a deeper vision of the subject and, hopefully, draw an emotional response from the viewer.

All capture methods and processes are welcome.

We are very pleased that Elizabeth Avedon will jury and curate this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 40 for our Online Gallery. All 75 selected images will be promoted on social media, reproduced in the exhibition print catalog, and remain permanently on our website, with links to photographer’s URL.

A scientific committee will select the projects, which will be exhibited with outdoor posters in public places in the city. Additionally, the festival will host numerous meetings and activities.



Liquid ~ Sky

Praxis Photo Arts Center

Minneapolis, MN

Liquid conforms to the shape of its container. The sky is an abstract sphere, centered on the earth. Liquid, Water, Sky and the liminal space between are by definition poetic and symbolic. Yet there are infinite iterations of liquid & sky: consider our human drive to master and contain liquids (pools, levies, faucets and bottles); idiomatic lamentations of “spilt milk” or “water under the bridge”– while also reaching upward in towering buildings, airplanes, and rockets that push skyward.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the ideas of liquid and sky in their myriad iterations; from landscapes to still life – from scientific to conceptual, Praxis seeks a broadly interpreted investigation of these forever flowing, forever ethereal ideas. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.



Tall Poppy Publishing Prize

We are looking for 1 book project to publish from an Australian photographer OR a co-authored project between an Australian/international collaboration. We really love collaborative projects, so please don’t hesitate to chat with a friend and work out a cool submission.

The Narrative

The Chateau Gallery

Louisville, KY

Narrative art is a powerful means to explore and express aspects of the human condition. A narrative can tell stories about a wide range of subjects, recount tales from religion, myth, legend, history, and literature, or examine existential questions, such as the meaning of life, death, and the nature of reality. A well-crafted narrative can transport us to another time and place, entertain, educate, and inspire or help us to view the world in a new way, reminding us of our shared humanity and the beauty of the world around us. Tell us, what’s your story?

The Narrative is an international juried group exhibition open to artists ages 18 and older. All forms of two-dimensional, traditional, and non-conventional art media (e.g., digital and film photography, video, oil painting, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, collage, drawing media such as graphite, charcoal, pencils, pen and ink, arts and crafts, etc.) are welcome for submission.




Decode Gallery

Tucson, AZ

Decode Gallery is pleased to announce our upcoming theme: Darkness. Humans have always had an entrancing relationship with the dark. Within our minds Darkness breeds mystery, fantasy and occasionally fear. Darkness is the space in which stories are born. As photographers we capture these stories and feelings in a moment to better explore them and our own dark passenger. We look forward to exploring the darkness in your photography.

Boston, MA

Beauty in the ordinary, in the stillness. Art is about capturing those moments that are gone again in a flash, moments that we find when we slow down.

You are invited to explore the meaning of the term “Family” through your images and thoughts. A theme as broad as “Family” offers a variety of approaches. From personal experience and autobiography – which often has a diary feel – to documentary and conceptual photography, as a result of a reflection on what family means today.

As we understand it, the term “family” refers to a social unit consisting of people who live together and interact in a domestic environment and who are related to each other by kinship or emotional ties. Submitted photographs could explore, imply or provide answers to questions such as (but not limited to): “What are families today?”, “How do traditions and cultures affect the way we live, in and with them?”, “Are there new ways of understanding the family?”; also, references to immigrants who created new social groups as well as the demand made by same-sex couples for recognition of their right to start their own families.



Memento Mori

The Chateau Gallery

Louisville, KY

Memento Mori is an exhibition that focuses on the themes of life and death. The Latin phrase “memento mori” means “remember that you will die.” Vanitas is a notable example, juxtaposing symbols such as skulls, wilting flowers, and wealth to represent the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death. Memento mori can be a powerful reminder of the fleeting nature of our presence, a source of comfort and inspiration, and a reminder that demise is a natural part of life and that we should make the most of our time on this mortal coil. Show us, what makes life worth living, and how does one cope with the inevitability of death?

Memento Mori is an international juried group exhibition open to artists ages 18 and older. All forms of two-dimensional, traditional, and non-conventional art media (e.g., digital and film photography, video, oil painting, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, collage, drawing media such as graphite, charcoal, pencils, pen and ink, arts and crafts, etc.) are welcome for submission.
