PHmuseum Days 2021

PHmuseum Days International Photography Festival Open Call


Yes, we are organizing an international photography festival! It's called PHmuseum Days, it will happen on 23-26 September 2021 in Bologna, Italy and we are inviting you to become part of it.

The PHmuseum Days 2021 will be the beginning of a new era for our project, characterised by a stronger sense of community and sharing. Photography intended as a universal language can be a powerful medium to transmit important messages, and our goal is to give life to the right platforms to display it. For this reason, after 9 years of online activities we decided to make the big step into the real world and offer our community also a physical playground to meet up, learn and exchange ideas.

The starting point of this initiative will be this open call whose theme is A New Beginning, which represents both the dawn of a new adventure for PHmuseum and, most importantly, an occasion to rethink together the decade that just started. Our aim is to select at least 2 works for individual shows, up to 40 images for a collective installation and up to 15 projects for the projections' night. Furthermore, all the applicants will be granted a free festival pass that we hope will be a good excuse to come over and enjoy a long weekend of photography and much more.

We look forward to seeing photographs related to the theme A New Beginning, and that challenge relevant topics such as collaboration, equality, sustainability, social justice, innovation and technology. All approaches are welcome from classic narratives to more experimental ways of shooting a project. Thank you for your consideration and support, we look forward to seeing your work and meeting you in a few months in Bologna!
