Deadline: October 29, 2019
Entry fee: $20 for 3 images
Prizes: participation in the online exhibition, Q&A with curator

Theme: ‘Self-conscious’

Curated by Frances Jakubek

Frances Jakubek is a photographer, curator, consultant and advocate for photography. She is the Director of Exhibitions at Bruce Silverstein Gallery in New York City and past Associate Curator of the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, Massachusetts.

This exhibition is calling out for image makers who are exploring visual depictions of the self. The photographs should reflect an awareness of existence and consciousness, whether depicting how we perceive our self in a greater conversation, (environmentally, politically, etc), or through self-portraiture. Our personal histories inform our responses to world events, relationships and different circumstances…how do we show this photographically?

Entry Fee

$20 for 3 images. ALL entrants work is shown on their own page with their artist statement, website info, bio and parts of their CV. Early entries are featured on N.Y. Photo Curator’s Facebook and Instagram pages.

First Place winner receives Q&A with curator. Curator reviews first place winner. One or more past curators may contribute reviews as well. 10% of artist fees goes to the first place winner’s charity. The first place image shows on our splash page for a month.

Call for Entry

ALL entrants work is exhibited in a group online exhibition. Each entrant is asked to submit 3 images so they can have their own page with their images, bio, artist statement and contact info.

The curator chooses one first place winner, one second place winner and three-five honorable mentions. The first place winner will receive a review by one or more curators including a Q&A about the photographer’s work. In addition, their image will be on our home page for a month. Second place and honorable mentions will have their image shown along with their bio, artist statement, C.V. and a link back to their website.
