Calls for Entries

–scapes

A curated international photography exhibition

November 18 – December 11, 2021

There are all sorts of natural and artificial scenes that capture the attention of photographers, compel and inspire them to pause, observe and create an image for the sake of the scene and convey a personal interpretation of what they see. These types of photographs go by a variety of names; they are called landscapes, cityscapes, streetscapes, seascapes, waterscapes, cloudscapes, or even desertscapes, treescapes, bodyscapes, and the like. Among these photographs the most successful ones go well beyond the mere recording of the visual qualities of a place as they bear the marks of the interpretive insights of the photographer. They make us contemplate a scene as meaningful and significant. For it is never challenging to merely re-present; it takes a novel conception of the scene to engage us, viewers, through the keen eyes and the creative mind of the photographer.

 

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed –scapes. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this subject and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed, as the photographic portrayal of scenes of the natural and built environment is independent of generic or stylistic constraints. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.

Submission deadlines: 

  • Early bird deadline: September 13, 2021

  • Final deadline: September 20, 2021

Dis/harmony

A curated international photography exhibition

December 16, 2021 – January 8, 2022

Harmony is an elusive, perhaps even ineffable aspect of photographic images. So is disharmony, its possibly disturbing, but often stimulating opposite. Although many photographers share the view that the communicative impact of images is enhanced by their harmony, there are countless individual artistic interpretations of what makes an image harmonious or disharmonious. Some consider harmony primarily as a visual compositional feature of photographs, also allowing for the unusual, for the unexpected, or even for the disturbing when it comes to compositional harmony or disharmony. For many others, harmony is also a thematic concept, and they find harmonious elements in the communicative content of the image, arising from the various interactions depicted in the photograph. The intentional lack of harmony may also lead to most creative photographic compositions. All photographic genres use the elements of composition to create the sense of harmony or its opposite.

 

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for the group exhibition themed Dis/harmony. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who think that harmony or disharmony is a constitutive element in their work, and who would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed; harmony or disharmony may be present as a formal aesthetic feature, it may be expressed visually on personal or social levels, literally or in abstract, symbolic ways. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative artistic interpretations of the theme.

Submission deadlines: 

  • Early bird deadline: October 11, 2021

  • Final deadline: October 18, 2021

Solo exhibition opportunity

January 13 – February 5, 2022

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a solo exhibition opportunity. Please submit a coherent portfolio that is suitable for a solo exhibition, an artist statement and a short bio. The portfolio should consist of at least 15 and at most 35 images. The submission may include one or two series, provided that the two series are suitable for a joint presentation in a single exhibition. There are no generic, stylistic or thematic constraints; photographers working in all photographic areas, genres and styles are welcome to submit their work.

  • The winner of this competition will be awarded a solo exhibition from January 13 – February 5, 2022.

  • PH21 Gallery will cover all printing and installation costs for the solo exhibition. In addition to the brick-and-mortar solo exhibition, the work of the winner will also be presented on a dedicated page of our website. The web page will include the artist statement and the bio of the photographer, together with the critical reviews by the curators.

  • Up to 10 other photographers will be offered the opportunity to present a mini-series of three photographs from their portfolio in the "Photographic Visions" group exhibition. Photographic Visions is a biannual exhibition at PH21 Gallery, showing mini-series of works of selected artists who submitted their portfolio for our solo exhibition competition. The Photographic Visions exhibition is also presented on a dedicated page on our website.

  • We will publish a catalogue for the solo exhibition and for the Photographic Visions exhibition as well. The catalogues (and the dedicated pages of the exhibitions on our website) will contain critical reviews by the curators of the exhibition. The exhibition catalogues will be available through Blurb Books.

Submission deadlines: 

  • Early bird deadline: November 8, 2021
