- Entry fee: $25 for 1 image ($12.50 for LACP Members)

This open call invites submissions for analog images by photographers worldwide. Exploring our relationships with the past, this call considers how analog procedures and experimentations inform our digital, networked existence and continue to push photographic practice forward.
The heated discussions about the impact of AI on photographic technology, practice and copyright highlight the growing resurgence of analog photography during the past decade: Photography brands, once on the brink of bankruptcy were able to turn a new leaf. New models of film cameras are rolling into the market, and a generation born into the online universe cannot wait to get to the darkroom. What captivates us in the singular photographic image? Can we consider contemporary questions about manipulation in the context of analog photo-making? What can analog photography teach us about the future and past of photography?
The selected works will be featured in both a virtual exhibition and a in-person exhibition, opening scheduled for Thursday, January 25, 2024, 6-8 pm PST @ LACP, 252 S. Los Angeles St, Los Angeles, CA 90012
1st Place winner will receive $1,000; 2nd Place winner will receive a $500 LACP gift card; 3rd Place winner will receive $250 LACP gift card.
Honorable Mentions: Other selected artists will receive honorable mentions.
The exhibition is open internationally to photographers of all levels. The juror will select images based on creativity, originality, and quality. LACP invites photographers working in all mediums and styles to take part in the exhibition. We do not accept images and texts created by AI at this time. We are discussing how to incorporate works created with AI in our exhibitions and events. The deadline to send digital files for consideration is Tuesday, December 12, 12:00 midnight, 2023.
