Deadline July 15th: Howard Chapnick Grant

W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund
Call for Entries: Howard Chapnick Grant
Deadline: Tuesday, July 15, 2014

“The Howard Chapnick Grant was introduced in 1996 to encourage and support leadership in fields ancillary to photojournalism, such as editing research, education and management. The Grant was established to honor the memory of Howard Chapnick, and acknowledge the value of his enormous contribution to photography.

The annual $5,000 grant may be used to finance any of a range of qualified undertakings, which might include a program of further education, research, a special long-term sabbatical project, or an internship to work with a noteworthy group or individual. According to the Fund’s Board of Trustees, special consideration will be given to projects that promote social change and/or serve significant concerns of photojournalism. The grant is not intended to be used for the production of photographs, which will continue to be funded by the main grant of the Smith Fund.

Recipients of the Howard Chapnick Grant will be selected by the Board of Trustees of the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund in Humanistic Photography.

To apply or nominate someone fill out the Online Form.”

June 6th, Santa Fe: Reception for Richard Tuschman and photo-eye Grand Opening

Opening Reception: Richard Tuschman, Hopper Meditations
Friday, June 6, 2014, 5:00-7:00 pm

“[Edward] Hopper was a master at using light to expressively illuminate his subject. I also like the fact that almost all of his human subjects are contemplative. There is, for the most part, no action. This sense of quietude contributes to the open-ended quality of the narratives, and leaves room for significant emotional depth. This seems a lot like real life, and what I would like to carry over in my work.” — Richard Tuschman

The exhibition will be on view June 6 – July 19, 2014.

This opening reception is in conjunction with photo-eye’s new gallery space grand opening.  The new photo-eye Gallery is located at:

541 S. Guadalupe St.
(in the Railyard Arts District)
Santa Fe, New Mexico

Deadline July 15th: Diffusion “The Matter of Light”

Diffusion
Call for the Entries: The Matter of Light
Deadline: Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at 12:00 pm PDT

Fee: $20 for 10 images, (max of 3 portfolios)

About
“What is a photograph? The origins of the word photography give us the broad idea of writing with light, while dictionary definitions tend to describe photography as we have known it, rather than offering some essential quality against which to measure. However we may define a photograph, what is certain is that its close connection with the world we see continues to pay a powerful role in art-making.

For this call we are looking for work that addresses this issue within our A Matter of Light theme. As usual we encourage artists working with photography in unconventional ways to submit—including (but not limited to) assemblage, historic processes, installation, mixed media, hand crafted processes, etc.

Jurors
Katherine Ware, Curator of Photography, New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe, NM.
Blue Mitchell, Independent publisher, curator, educator, and photographer, Portland, OR.

Awards
Awards for the different categories include:

  • Exhibition award: Featured in our next annual group exhibition
  • Featured artist portfolio with interview
  • Complimentary copy of print and digital issue
  • Merchandise grab bag from our store
  • and more TBA.

Eligibility
International. The juried showcase is open to all photo-based artists.”
