Competitions Praxis Gallery Call for Artists: Open
International Deadline: February 29, 2020 – Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art of any genre and any subject matter that represents the artist’s endeavor to reveal through the photographic process a personal declaration of visual significance – be it a celebration of pure aesthetic formalism, of humor or conflict – of fiction or fact – or any other literal or ephemeral lens based investigation.
All subject matters, genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
“When a moment in front of me appears to be particularly special, whether it be by beauty or experience, I capture it. I usually find a reason to justify taking that photo – symmetry, or color or contrast – and it’s my hope that my photography sheds light onto what I see and do on a daily basis.” – Connor Franta
Exhibition Dates: April 17 – May 12, 2020.
Open to artists 18 years of age or older worldwide. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
