ACP Public Art Project 2013
Deadline: Monday, January 21, 2013

No entry fee.

“Each year, ACP commissions a temporary public art project that is a highlight of the ACP Festival. ACP’s Public Art program is significant in its ability to bring photographic or lens-based projects to audiences that might not ordinarily visit a traditional arts venue. These projects encourage viewers to consider photography in fresh new ways. Do you have a great idea for an exciting Public Art project? We’d love to see it!

Our Open Call for Proposals for the ACP 2013 Public Art Project is now accepting your creative ideas. We look forward to your proposals exploring the intersection of photography and public art in Atlanta for this year’s Festival!

Our 2013 Public Art Project has a $9,500 budget, and it’s free to apply. 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).”

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

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.

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.

Budget
$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.

Submission Requirements

  • Contact information such as name, address, phone numbers, e-mail address, web site as required by CallForEntry.org
  • A succinct concept statement for the project (not to exceed 400 words). Statement must also include technical details, material selection, and any additional pertinent information including your suggested project Schedule (site visits, design, fabrication, installation and de-installation timeline). 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.
  • Current Resume (include individual resumes for all team members). Be sure to highlight your previous experience with the materials and technology that you are proposing for this project.
  • Up to 6 (six) work samples should be included in your application (jpegs, audio and video files are allowed). Include images that show a sense of your imagery and working process. Include year of project in image title.”

Overview
“ACP produces a Public Art Project as a central component of our month-long, city-wide celebration of photography each October.  ACP’s acclaimed program of public art has featured temporary projects in a variety of diverse locations throughout Atlanta.  The program’s significance is in its ability to reach beyond the audience of traditional art venues and expand the way the audience considers and perceives photography and “lens-based” media.  We are looking for proposals that take advantage of public art’s ability to reach new audiences, and to create an experience that is a dynamic hybrid of art in the public sphere.”
