Deadline April 1st: Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts & Social Issues

Columbia College | Heartland Alliance
Call for Submissions: Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues
Deadline: Monday, April 1, 2019
Application Fee: $25

“The Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues creates a space for a socially engaged photographer to produce a compelling and dynamic body of work highlighting human rights and social issues.

Columbia College Chicago and Heartland Alliance, two internationally recognized institutions with Chicago roots dating back more than 120 years, partner in hosting the Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues. The fellowship is a unique public commitment to socially engaged art, combining Columbia’s dedication to academic excellence and developing authentic, creative voices with Heartland Alliance’s bold history of advocating for the rights of the world’s most vulnerable populations.

This postgraduate fellowship creates an opportunity for a socially engaged photographer to immerse themselves in the community of Heartland Alliance and to produce a new, original, and compelling body of photographic work that speaks to the human rights and social issues revealed through these experiences. By engaging with the Heartland Alliance community of participants and practitioners, the fellowship allows the artist to create a true connection between subject, audience, and community. This serves the larger goal of the fellowship, which is to use photographic practice to elevate our collective awareness of social, economic, and cultural issues and to inspire positive social change.

In addition to their work with the Heartland Alliance community in the greater Chicago area, the fellow will also spend significant time at Columbia College Chicago, where they will be mentored by a Photography Department faculty member and will work with Columbia students. The fellow will also have a Heartland Alliance project sponsor dedicated to aid their immersion in the Heartland community and to provide valuable feedback during the nine-month project. The fellowship will culminate with a public presentation, exhibition and/or publication of the fellow’s newly created body of work at the completion of the fellowship period.

Because of the dynamic nature of the fellowship, a full-time commitment is required during the academic year (September to May). Fellowship hours will vary, as will the activities in which the fellow will be immersed. It is expected that the fellow will reside in Chicago during the term of the award.

A $25,000 stipend will be awarded for the 2019-20 academic year to support the fellow’s work. Talented individuals who have completed an MFA in photography or in another related creative field and who are committed to active immersion and participation with Heartland Alliance and Columbia College Chicago are encouraged to apply.”

Deadline January 28th: Art+Science

A Smith Gallery
Call for Entries: Art+Science
Deadline: Monday, January 28, 2019
Entry Fee: $38 for the first 5 images, $7 per each additional image.

“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.

JUROR: Linda Alterwitz
Alterwitz is an interdisciplinary artist with diverse interests in the fields of medical research and the natural environment. Her work encourages an awakening of the senses toward a subtle shift of consciousness, offering people a connection with the unseen.

“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.

I am the writer and editor for the Art + Science column on Lenscratch Magazine in which I showcase work by photographers who address a genre of photography that lives at the intersection of art and science.  Up to 33 of the final selections to this call will be featured in a Lenscratch post highlighting this Art + Science exhibition.”  —Linda Alterwitz

New York Times Lens Blog
Applications Now Open for the 2019 New York Portfolio Review
Deadline: Monday, December 10, 2018, 11:59 PM EST

“It takes time, passion and obsession to make great work. But you also need the opportunity to have your work seen in the first place. And since we at Lens believe only the quality of work should matter — not your connections or bank account — we are again bringing together 160 talented photographers with 75 top photo editors, publishers, curators, gallery owners and video producers, for the 7th annual New York Portfolio Review on March 30 and 31 in New York City.

Applications are now open for the free (as always) review, which is produced by The New York Times Lens column, the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York and United Photo Industries. Participation is open to anyone over 18 years old, and all types of photography will be considered. But remember, the deadline is Dec. 10 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time.

Now a mainstay of photo events in the United States, the review convenes the photographic community to meet, trade ideas, help each other — and have fun.

The first session, on Saturday, March 30, will be for photographers 21 and older. Each participant will receive six private critiques. The second session, on Sunday, March 31, will be solely for photographers 18 to 27 and will consist of at least four private critiques for each participant, as well as free workshops on how to best present, promote and publish photographs. We will screen all applicants and choose 100 participants for Saturday and 60 for Sunday.”
