ACP Photo Festival Public Art Project Request for Artists Proposals - Project date Oct 2013 - Deadline to apply January 21, 2013. About ACP: Since 1998, Atlanta Celebrates Photography has supported Atlanta’s emergence as an international center for photography. Through an annual October festival and year-round programs, ACP seeks to nurture and support photographers, educate and engage audiences, promote diverse photography venues, and enrich Atlanta’s cultural scene. The acclaimed ACP Public Art program, an integral component of the annual ACP festival, has featured temporary projects in a variety of diverse locations throughout Atlanta. It is significant in its ability to reach beyond the audience of traditional art venues and for its ability to expand the way its audience considers and perceives photography and “lens-based” media. See for more. Eligibility Any artist as an individual or team may apply, provided that the person(s) or firm who will be responsible for the actual fabrication and/or construction of the piece(s) have had previous experience in the medium(s) proposed, which must be disclosed in detail in the application form. Entry Fee: None Media No media restrictions have been established in order to ensure maximum creativity for participating artists. However, since ACP is an organization that promotes all things photographic, it is a requirement that your project involve lens-based or photographic media as an integral part of the piece (this includes images and/or video captured by a lens, or media in which light sensitivity is a primary element of the material, or reimagining the uses of photography, or possibilities of imagery made with light). We encourage you to think widely and to explore this concept without restraint. Please keep in mind the “Selection Criteria” listed below. Projects that rely heavily on complex or untested technologies are discouraged – usually, the simpler the better. Please see the attached description of past ACP projects for a demonstration of the variety of projects we have commissioned. Budget $ 9,500 has been allocated. The budget is all-inclusive, covering design, construction and/or fabrication, transportation, delivery, site preparation, lighting (if applicable), insurance, consultant fees, installation and de-installation at the conclusion of the project. Artist’s travel (if applicable) and all other costs associated with the project (including Artist’s fee) are included in this amount. If the proposed budget exceeds $ 9,500, your application must detail how the overage will be funded. Site & Duration Applicants may propose sites, but should be aware that it is the applicant’s responsibility to obtain permission and access from the proper authorities. Note that Artist should initiate the obtaining of permission during the application process if possible. ACP can assist the artist in securing an appropriate site(s) for the project if assistance is needed. Consideration should also be given to security, view accessibility, and ambient light issues of a proposed site. ACP would like the project to begin in late September/early October 2013 and be on exhibition throughout the month of October, but will consider other time durations as they relate to specific projects. The artist should plan to remove the project early November, 2013. Timeline & Contact Information All applications are being accepted via the website (it is free for artists to register).
