The 2018 Head On Photo Festival, scheduled to take over Sydney once again next May, is issuing a final call to photographers for exhibition submissions.
Exhibition submissions for the festival will close in two weeks, on September 17.
All photographers are invited to make a submission, provided the work is well-executed.
Exhibitions are selected based on three factors – the images, the exhibition description/project statement, and how each of these elements work as a cohesive body on a single theme.
Organisers suggest to fine-tune the exhibit description, keep it clear and concise, don’t describe what can be seen in the images, and avoid too much ‘art-speak’. (Bravo!)
There is no time limit on when the project was produced, and the selection process is done anonymously. That means the name and credentials of the artist is kept blank to ensure projects are chosen without bias.
Successful applicants will be invited to exhibit during the festival, and some will be asked to be part of the Curated program.
For the second year the festival will award a grant for one exceptional exhibition submission. The recipient will receive an all-expenses paid exhibition at a key festival venue.
Submissions require 10 images, a statement, an artist bio, and a $15 fee to be paid.
Head On Photo Festival will run from May 5 – 20, 2018.
Head On heads abroad, again!
Head On will once again tour 80 Head On Photo Awards finalist to festivals in China and India.
The 2017 Portrait Prize finalist photos will show at Hyderabad Indian Photography Festival during September and October. Festival director, Moshe Rosenzveig, has also curated a ‘survey exhibition’ from past Head On Landscape Prizes, which will exhibit in the Pingyao International Photography Festival in September.
