CALL FOR ENTRIES | FORMAT PHOTO FESTIVAL (Street Photography)
Thought you (or others you know) might be interested in this:
Edited highlights from the blurb by the festival organisers:
“We ask you to submit photographic bodies of work, moving image or ideas for events.
The theme offers the opportunity to explore the public realm from purely conceptual works through to social documentary and street photography.
The festival will be curated beyond the idea of Street photography using it as reference point but subverting and challenging its strategies and relations far and wide.
From citizen journalism to free association, from photo text works and moving image, installation and audience participation to photo documentary.
We want you to challenge us with how your work can fit with the theme and in what format you can show photography.
Street photography (our starting point) links directly to the heritage of photography, but today has become one of the most contentious issues we have to contend with terrorism acts and censorship, blogging and controls online.
“Right Here Right Now” sheds bright light on a world reigned by absurdity and incongruence, guided by serendipity or perfect collisions of time and space caught by photographers who chart the world as flaneur or image hunters defining the moment.
FORMAT will go some way to engage with contemporary issues facing photographic production today engaging in current debate around the freedom to make images in the public realm."
If you are not interested but know someone who might be, pass this on!
