19th DongGang International Photo Festival OPENCALL 2020

This Deadline Expired: Tuesday, May 5, 2020

We invite you to submit your work to the 19th DongGang International Photo Festival, to be held this year from July 10th to September 27th, 2020 in DongGang, Yeongwol, Korea.

This year’s theme:
Be Brilliant!
One must try to overcome his or her fears without suppressing oneself in fear of one’s current limitations or of the uncertainty of the future. To avoid being consumed by the heavy burden of one’s dreams, one must devote one’s energy to actively affirming and nurturing one’s dreams. An act of creating a work that can represent one’s persona is often carried out as stealthily and deliberately as in plotting a conspiracy.

Individuals and collectives are welcome to apply; individuals should select and submit between 8-12 photographs from a particular series or body of work. ‘Artist of the year’ (individual artist or 1 team of winner) and 19 photographers / artists / groups will benefit from:
A-year-long exhibition that exposures at the DIPF Festival – inclusion in art magazine, any related press (long term festival representation and promotion on official website, publications, catalog that being seen by a substantial number of visual arts professionals and the media) where the works viewed by an international panel of influential experts in the field of photography
