We are looking for photographers with a fresh perspective, compelling imagery and an insatiable drive to make an impact within the photography community. The featured photographers will be selected by the editors of Emerging Photographer, PDN and Rf, and their work will appear in the print issue and in a digital edition on issuu.com.

Emerging Photographer is distributed to art buyers, photo editors and creative directors. It has also been distributed at various galleries, Photo LA, PDN‘s 30 events and MOPLA, and exhibited at a pop-up exhibition at MOPLA last summer. This issue, select photographers will have the opportunity to sell prints of their work through CoEdit Collection, an online gallery and space for artists to share their images and ideas with a larger audience. We are always looking for new opportunities for the next group of selected photographers.

Acuity Press
Call for Entries: Street Photography 2015
Deadline: Tuesday, August 11, 2015 at 11:59 PM PDT
Fee: $35 for 6 images

Street Photography 2015 was established to recognize a segment of photography that is often explored historically but rarely recognized as an important catalog of social currency and circumstance.

The competition will result in a photo book that honors the tradition of street photography in today’s world. Being published in a book is a benchmark for many in their photographic career. It is a medium through which the public can gain a nuanced understanding of the artists’ work and a collective theme, and the book’s physical presence allows it to be added to longstanding collections of such work.

Jurors
Round 1 – Photographers: Eric Kim, John Free, Matt Stuart, Daniel Arnold, and Ken Schles.
Round 2 – Curator, author and educator Colin Westerbeck.

Categories
Mobil Phone, Social Circumstance, Portrait / People, Street Fashion, Urban Landscape, Urban Culture, Day / Night.”

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.”

Deadline May 19th: “SPECTRE // SPECTRUM” Conveyor Magazine Issue No. 5

Conveyor Magazine
Call for Entries: SPECTRE // SPECTRUM
Deadline: Sunday, May 19, 2013, Midnight PDT

“Our sense of wonder and fear is most palpable when our visions are fleeting…

In the forthcoming issue of Conveyor, we will be searching for moments when the properties of a spectre, that which dissolves from our sight, and a spectrum, a continuum or perfection of vision, overlap and counterbalance each other. The trespassing of these apparitions between the material and immaterial worlds can be equally thrilling and terrifying, amorphous and yet revealing.

We’re looking for absorbing and unexpected sights – phantom or prismatic images, atmospheric phenomena, news from a secret admirer or an absent friend – things that remind us of sidelong glances, illusory dreams, primal discoveries, and ghosts in the machine. They can appear abruptly or be gently delivered; they can range from electrified vision to muted whisper, from stark revelations to those that bleed together.

Submission Guideline
Images

  • 10 jpgs maximum (1000 pixels each on the longest side)
  • List of Images (include Title, Year, Media, Dimensions for each image)
  • Short statement (150 words) + Artist’s CV
  • Email submission materials in a ZIP file to: SUBMISSIONS@CONVEYORMAGAZINE.ORG.

Writing

  • Proposal (350 words) for an article or essay on the theme of Spectre//Spectrum
  • CV and Bio
  • Writing Sample
  • Email proposals to: EDITORS@CONVEYORMAGAZINE.ORG.

Mailed/emailed submissions will not be accepted.
