Flagstaff Arts Council (AZ), International Call for Artists: Photography That Matters
Deadline: June 15th, 2017
Billions of images are created and disseminated daily through social media, television, print, and film, all competing for attention. Navigating and consuming media can mean an overwhelming barrage of images and information.
How much of it, though, really matters? It is difficult to parse through the photos of lasagna, feet in the grass, or someone’s latest muscle gains. Sometimes, though, images of true import cut through the noise, helping us better understand our world: an image of a place threatened by development or industry, for example, an endangered species in its natural habitat, protests happening around the world, people implementing change in a specific area, or an image that leaves a lasting impact because of who, or what, it captures.
The Flagstaff Arts Council is seeking submissions for an exhibition of high quality artistic black and white photographs that matter. Images should cause the viewer to think, feel, or act.
Awards: Jury prizes will be awarded for Best of Show ($400), Second Place ($150), and Third Place ($50). Prize winning works will be announced at the opening reception on July 29, 2017.
