Odesa Photo Days 2019 StandPoint


It took a while for Odesa Photo Days festival team to come up with the theme for 2019. We’ve decided initially that we want to focus on process of creating illusions and artificial realities, fakes and manipulations on the internet and election campaigns, in media and everyday life. We do not intend to criticize things and events related to the times of new media technologies and relationship development, but plan to emphasize the versatility of reality and its perception. It all depends on a context and standpoint, from which one or another artificially created phenomenon is regarded. As always, Odesa Photo Days is looking for standpoints from all over the world.

“Standoint” exposition is a combination of authors’ visions of versatility of the world and multiple ways for comprehending reality. We accept photo series of any stylistics: documentary, reportage, fiction, fantasies. We prioritize author’s story and originality, expression integrity.

Praxis Gallery and Photographic Arts Center
Minneapolis, MN


Twentieth century French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson described   the   decisive   moment   as   ‘the    simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.”

While the concept of the decisive moment is often associated with dynamic, synchronic activity captured in an instant – it may just as well apply to the photographic image that records a thoughtful moment of fleeting solitude or calm. All subjects, genres, capture types, black & white and monochromatic, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

The 6th Open Call for Entries: – A Juried International Photography Exhibition
A juried open call for contemporary voices in photography

Juror:  Aline Smithson





Darkroom Gallery
Essex Jct., VT


 It’s about water.

For this exhibition we’re looking for creative depictions of anything Wet. This could include  water in its other guises, as ice or steam.  The subject matter of the photos you submit can be virtually anything as long as water or wetness is included. For example, think of the ways a surface is transformed by a gloss of water, the many ways of picturing water droplets, and the ways in which water is used in technology.  Be aware, also, of the demands people are placing on water, making it a scarce and valuable resource in many parts of the world.  Floods in some places, droughts in others. This is a wide open theme that should be accessible to most who shoot photos; show us your best.

Juror: Elizabeth Opalenik





How do we process our past, capture our present, and envision our future? For the artist, these questions can lead to a plethora of subjects and explorations. Anything and everything has a past, present, and future, and we want to see what you can make of it. We are looking for artists to show us a piece of your past, a captured moment that seems to embody your present, or your highest hopes or greatest fears for tomorrow.

Any combination of the three will be accepted, we just want the imagery to in some way tell us your story of beginning, middle and end.

Best in show award winners will have their work included in our booth presentation at Superfine! DC 2019.

ONE SHOT Works Made in One Sitting

Manifest Creative Research Gallery
Cincinnati, Ohio

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, presents an open call for artwork exploring the theme of works made in one sitting.
Whether it be an ‘alla prima’ approach to painting, a spontaneous drawing, an inspired collage, or some other form of artwork, one can only marvel at such works done with grace, precision, aggressive passion, and finality—ultimately all in one sitting. Regardless of whether it was the result of a brief moment, or a long day of labor, a work of art made in one sitting tells a truth often hidden by other more refined works.With this in mind, we are eager to see what this truth looks like, and how it may vary from artist to artist, work to work. All types of work are welcome, including traditional and non-traditional approaches in any media, and any subject, non-objective, abstract, conceptual, etc.

A Color Moment

PhotoPlace Gallery
Middlebury, VT


A successful color photograph finds color as an essential element. Without color, the impact of the image would be significantly reduced. When used well, color coalesces with the other elements of the image to create an atmosphere, an emotional response, a sense of place. Effective use of color can take your breath away, zing your eyes, grab your heart, and celebrate light.

The photographs in this exhibit will be chosen less for technique and more for the pure passion captured in a moment in which color is a key element.

Juror: Arthur Meyerson

A Smith Gallery
Johnson City, TX


Has photography ever really been disconnected from Science? From the invention of the pinhole camera about one thousand and twenty years ago by the Arab mathematician, physicist, and Astronomer, Ibn al-Haytham, up to today’s use of radiology to produce works of art, science and art have been inseparable. Photography is the perfect intersection of Art and Science.


“The Art and Science movement is not new, yet its reach is currently building momentum. More than producing aesthetic images derived from scientific data, science-inspired artists find connections that reflect a common purpose – one that integrates the authenticity of science and the communicative power of art. The sci-art movement promotes dialogue and offers a platform in hopes of improving the world in which we live.”

Juror for “art+science” will be Linda Alterwitz, artist and photographer.



ALL ABOUT PHOTO 2019 The Mind’s Eye Open Theme


Our fourth edition of the All About Photo Awards invites photographers from around the world to submit their best work for consideration. In reference to Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photo essay, The Mind’s Eye investigates the depth and thoughts behind each image.

“To take photographs means to recognize – simultaneously and within a fraction of a second – both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one’s head, one’s eye and one’s heart on the same axis”.
Henri Cartier-Bresson

LoosenArt Mag and Gallery STRANGER THAN FICTION


LoosenArt: Call for Exhibition│Accepted media: Photography, Visual Designers

The will of man in recreating worlds through which to plunge and surprise him self has always been witnessed through the means dedicated to art. Especially today, with photography and new digital media, not only the artists but any individual, has available means that allow us to recreate fictional reality more and more illusory and more easily.

The present call, on the contrary, proposes to collect works that are able to surprise us through aspects belonging to the real world. Often the reality we perceive of the world, of an environment, situation, person, etc., reveals an unusual dissimilarity from the normal, overcoming our fantasies and becoming motive not only for perplexity, even of singular interest, curiosity and surprise.



Fine Art Photography Awards – 5th edition


Art is born out of passion. Fine Art photography is a perfect instrument, which allows a person to communicate with the world and share their vision. It results from the author’s deep sensitivity, a need to express feelings through image, a unique view of the surrounding reality. It can be spontaneous, but it can also be a conscious and deliberate manifesto. FAPA is searching for photos born out of passion – your passion.

The competition is open to everyone, amateurs and professionals alike. Entries are welcome from any country in the world. Your work will be judged by an international panel of high profile photographers.

The winners of the Professional and Amateur sections will receive the titles: Professional Fine Art Photographer of the Year, Amateur Fine Art Photographer of the Year and $5000 in cash prizes.

* portraiture – self, individual or group;

LoosenArt Mag and Gallery “Urban Lights”


It is a need made known since the most remote past that of man to illuminate his streets, squares, contexts of social life and community: rom lanterns that indicated the way to go, to the ones that indicated an hospitable place in which stop. Every means created by man to illuminate is therefore not only useful for the orientation of one’s own spaces, but also a means of bringing messages, it is at the same time synonymous with energy, testimony of life and the presence of man himself.


Today are the neon, the illuminated signs, the lights of shopping centers, of the streets, squares, buildings, etc. to bear witness to this ancient means.


This call will collect works that tell of the world of today urban contexts, in the relationship between man, his environment and the means he created to give light.
