A juried international photography exhibition
May 17 – June 9, 2018
We live much of our lives in familiar situations and surroundings, and that holds true for our natural, built as well as our social environment. We need to rely on the known and the recognizable so that we can go about our daily routines. There are photographs that depict the known and the familiar; photography, however, may also surprise us by presenting that which is unusual, distracting or even disturbing. These images may catch us off guard and demand more of our attention and interpretive efforts. They might be unexpected for various reasons in terms of their content or composition; they all, however, originate in a creative photographic decision to present the world in a way that departs from the mundane ordinariness of the familiar.
PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Unexpected. 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 without any photographic genre restrictions. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.
One juror’s choice and up to three honourable mentions will be selected and announced. The juror’s choice receives three free entries for any upcoming themed group exhibition calls at PH21 Gallery. (Each free entry includes up to 15 images.)
All photographers 18 years or older worldwide may enter the competition by submitting their own, original work.
Copyrights & Usage Rights:
By entering, entrants automatically accept the conditions of the competition; they grant PH21 Gallery nonexclusive right to use and reproduce submitted photographs (with the name of the photographer and the title of the work indicated) for promotional (e.g.: website and Facebook page of the Gallery, catalogue) and exhibition purposes.
