The Shape of Things

PH21 Gallery
Budapest, Hungary


A juried international photography exhibition

November 23 – December 16, 2017

Objects in our visual environment come in many forms and photographers are often intrigued by the shape of things. In some photographic genres the images of things have a simple, depictive function; they are merely part of a complex image that may consist of several recognizable objects but their shape is not significant in the overall composition of the image. At the other end of the spectrum, abstract photography concentrates of the shape of things for their own sake up to a point when we can no longer recognise the objects themselves. Between being either insignificant or the only significant element, the shape of recognizable things may also be the driving compositional component of an image. That is, the shape of things may be of central importance to the composition of photographs not only in abstract photography but also in other genres. These images capture our attention and stand out for their creative form.

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed The Shape of Things. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this subject and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed; we are looking for photographs in which the shape of things is a significant compositional element. The only restriction is that the object(s) in the photograph must be recognisable. Apart from that, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.

Foley Gallery
New York, NY


Foley Gallery is excited to announce a call-for-entry for our upcoming exhibition Mirror, Mirror.  Artists working in all mediums are encouraged to submit original work for consideration.

Mirrors and Beauty go hand in hand. Originally an incantation in the Brothers Grimm 19th-century story Little Snow-White and expanded upon in Disney’s version more than 100 years later, “Mirror, mirror” has us questioning what beauty is and how it can be measured.

Mirrors are reflective surfaces, typically constructed of glass coated with a metal amalgam that reflects a clear image. You can take our theme literally and look to the properties of a mirror or reflective surface, or you can look at a mirror as metaphor for beauty. You artwork need not have a depiction of an actual mirror in it to be considered.

The Portrait

Praxis Gallery and Photographic Arts Center
Minneapolis, MN


In her book, Portraits and Persons, writer Cynthia Freeland describes three essential elements that constitute a portrait: “(1) a recognizable physical body (2) an inner life, i.e., some sort of psychological or mental states and (3) self-presentation, or the “posing.” Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographs that celebrate the aesthetic and conceptual considerations involved in the creation of the portrait: revealing personal narratives or new anthologies through the artistic representation of the subject. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Regardless of your opinions or nationality, we welcome images that evoke the broad range of emotions and events of this astounding period in United States history. All capture methods and processes are welcome. We anticipate a varied and interesting exhibition!

Southeast Center for Photography
Greenville, South Carolina


The SE Center for Photography is looking for Shades of Black and White. For the first 100 years of photography monochrome was the only choice. When asked to name a fine art photographer, one usually thinks of those of 1930s-70s, masters of black and  white, shadow and light, form and contrast. The photographers of today turn to shades of black and white for the same expressive ability of monochrome and we’re looking for the best.

Black-and-white or toned, digital or antique processes, photographers of all skill levels and locations are welcome.

Juror: Susan Burnstine

The Mask

Loosen Art Project
Milan, Italy

Call for Book Publication
Your artwork Could also takes part in one of the LoosenArt Collective exhibitions in Rome, Italy.
FREE ENTRY Artists are invited to submit 1 to 3 artworks addressing the theme
The call is open to the artists who work in the field of photography.
The theme is that of the mask, a symbol of a human existence paradox, often indispensable to reveal the reality, the nature of world things or the emotional feeling. The mask as a filter, occultation, lie, mimesis, protection, as escape from himself or as a means through which to identify yourself in the other …
Already known in the literature and the history of art, the theme of the mask is more topical than ever, becoming a subject of reflection connected to the identity built into the sharing channels of the virtual world.

“ONE” 2017

New York Center for Photographic Arts
New York, NY


Remember the Three Dog Night song “One is the Loneliest Number”. But is it? In this call we are looking for those images with a single compelling focal point.  It could be a person or thing that is alone in the frame or an element of a large grouping that clearly stands out.  A lot filled with blue cars with a single bright red one would fit the bill as would a portrait reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth’s “Christina’s World”, and the six foot tall teacher surrounded by his or her grade school class.  Selective focus can isolate a single horse from the herd or a single pedestrian from the crowd on a city street.
Once again the possibilities are endless out there – let’s see how you capture them.

Juror: Aline Smithson



Loosen Art: ABOUT ME


In each creative act we find a trace of a human experience, always recognized as a testimony of an action and / or a choice, but above all as an expression of “yourself”.

The publication About Me will gather shots capable of emphasizing the self-referential speech of “yourself”, highlighting aspects related to identity, to the psychic, cultural and moral world of the human being, able to look at art as a knowledge channel, encounter and sharing with others.
