Deadline February 12th: ACP’s 2012 Public Art Project

Atlanta Celebrates Photography
Call for entries: ACP Photo Festival Public Art
Deadline: Sunday, February 12, 2012
Entry fee: Free

“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.

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 or complex audience participation are discouraged – usually, the simpler the better.

$9,000 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 $ 9,000, your application must detail how the overage will be funded.

  • A succinct concept statement for the project (not to exceed 400 words).

Note: audience experience is the most important part of any public project. Realistically address audience experience in your statement.
  • One page budget that lists the costs associated with the project and a list of the materials to be used. Make sure your budget is inclusive of all elements described in “Budget” section above.
