The 10th Open Call for Entries: - A Juried International Photography Exhibition
A juried open call for contemporary voices in photography. We are looking for work to mount an international showcase for contemporary voices in photography, no theme or prompt.
We are looking to bring together image makers from around the world to survey current photographic practice across a full spectrum of image capture, presentation and subject matter. We are looking to assemble, for a gallery exhibition, a collection of work that reflects the range of current photographic practice across the world in 2024. Beyond the requirement that light was captured in the making of your work, the only limit is your imagination.
