Remember, INPHA is not a gallery exhibition. It does not require shipping works to Manifest. It is an award-winning non-profit hardcover publication with cash awards.
The International Photography Annual is open to any artist submitting original works of art created within the time frame of 2014 – 2017. Professionals and students in ALL disciplines are encouraged to submit. Manifest is eager to receive works in a wide range of applications with the qualification being that artwork submitted is representative of high quality “photography or lens-based art.”
AWARDS & CASH PRIZES
First, Second, and Third Place awards for VISUAL works will be decided by the jury committee. Each award winner will have a brief artist’s statement included in the publication. There will be three cash prizes of $1200, $500, and $300 for first, second, and third place winners.
Open to any media applicable to the practice of photography or lens-based work, including but by no means limited to traditional, digital/new media, photography, printmaking, mixed media, collage, etc. All are possibly valid.
ESSAYS & OTHER DRAWING RELATED WRITINGS
(optional separate call for submissions)
Manifest calls for scholarly, critical, and creative writing for publishing in each of its three publication projects. Information about this, and a separate entry process, can be found here.
Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This project will be juried by a 5-9 member panel of professional and academic volunteer advisors with a broad range of expertise.
Manifest Press will produce a high quality hard-cover publication documenting each entire season of exhibits, artists, and works shown. This continues Manifest’s commitment to long-term documentation and dissemination of our projects, and the expansion of physical exhibits into a broader geography and time frame, while also bringing all exhibits together under one cover each year to create a better product which will be more valuable to the public, teachers, libraries, and exhibiting artists.

An Internet-based online International Photography Annual Resource website will be published to accompany the printed Annual. This will feature statements, bios, contact info., and professional information for each person included. See website for examples.
