All About Photo Awards 2020 - The Mind's Eye

Country:

Eligibility:

Our 5th edition of the All About Photo Awards invites photographers from around the world to submit their best work for consideration. In reference to Henri Cartier-Bresson's photo essay, The Mind's Eye investigates the depth and thoughts behind each image.

"To take photographs means to recognize - simultaneously and within a fraction of a second - both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one's head, one's eye and one's heart on the same axis".
Henri Cartier-Bresson

Winners will receive $10,000 in cash awards, extensive press coverage and global recognition.
The grand prize is $5,000, the 2nd prize is $2,000, the 3rd prize is $1,500, the 4th prize is $1,000 and the 5th prize is $500!

Lusted Men, open collection of erotic pictures of men*

Share

Eligibility:

Where are men*’s bodies in erotic photography?

The bulbous geometry of that bulge between the legs. The detail of a pulsing forearm vein. A drop of sweat dripping down a neck. This is what we want to see and show: the intimacy of male bodies in all shapes, sizes and anatomies.

As such, we’re seeking erotic photos of LUSTED MEN.

We invite you all to join us in creating a king-sized collection of meaty, masculine erotic pictures. Selfies, analog film shots, digital photos, photomontages, screenshots: all your images—whether they be pieces of artwork, or simple snapshots from your phone—can help furnish this gallery of the up-close-and-personal. The collection will be exhibited at Recyclart in Brussels, in 2020.

Photographs of men as objects of desire are rare. Erotica is a sphere largely left consigned to woman*: to be showcased, to be peeped at, to be ogled, to give one’s self over to others’ pleasure.

Men are taught to conquer others, not to lay themselves bare before a lens, an audience; and they are not brought to explore their own body and sensuality. To do so is a cultural taboo, one so closely adhered to that we don’t even notice the near absence of men in erotic photography. So let’s show them to be the objects of desire that they are.

Many gay artists have explored this field such as Pierre et Gilles, Mapplethorpe, and Jalis2019, to whom we’ll pay homage. But what of the gaze of women—those attracted to, allured, enchanted by men? As women, we want to explore this largely uncharted ground. Women are not the only raw materials of desire, despite being used as such in advertising, photography, and cinema. We are also behind the lens, producers of erotic images.

So, come photographers, models, amateurs, aficionados! Send us your stock of erotic male images. For men curious to feel desired, for women who want to share their regard: indulge and participate. Look through the sexy pictures on your phones, set up photo shoots! LUSTED MEN will be all the more succulent for it. With or without clothes, following the audacity of your desires.

REQUIREMENTS:

Media

Images - 5

Entry Fee $45.00

DESCRIPTION:

Gallery19 announces a call for entries for our Third annual juried competition, Meed3: When Photography Ruled the Streets. Photographers at all experience levels are invited to submit work.  Artists selected as finalists will have their work exhibited (and available for purchase*) at Gallery19 for the month of July 2019. ** As competition judge, Ahmed Ozsever, artist and educator, will review all entries, select finalists, and announce the winner at an opening reception at Gallery19, on July 12th, 2019.

 

THEME: When Photography Ruled the Streets

Gallery19 and juror Ahmed Ozever delve into the ever-changing world of street photography. There is no clear definition of street photography, but for this competition we will define street photography as the preservation of special moments of our time, in which artists make accessible to future generations.  These images are a documentation of who we are and where we have been.  Street photography fully immerses the viewer into a different time and experience. Our hope is that artists of all levels will submit work that will tell stories like street photographers Vivian Maier and William Eggleston.

ENTRY FEE:

$45 for submission of 5 jpgs.  Payment must be in US dollars.  Entry fees are non-refundable.  Submission of artists’ statements and bio required.

THE PAYOFF:

The winner of Gallery19 Meed3 will receive a solo show at Gallery19 for the month of August 2020. The winner will also have a one-year contract with Gallery19, which includes exposure on the gallery’s website, ongoing multi-media, promotion, including social media, participation in gallery programming (openings, events, artist talks, etc.), and direct sales efforts. In addition, Ahmed Ozsever will mentor the winner for a full year August 2019 through August 2020, by reviewing and evaluating work product, and assisting in development of a gallery-ready exhibition, all culminating in a solo exhibition at Gallery19.

JUDGE:

We are honored to have Ahmed Ozsever preside over the 2019-2020 Gallery19 Meed3 competition. Ahmed Ozsever is an interdisciplinary artist based in Chicago. He works in installation and embraces architectural anomalies, as well as the hidden histories of a given location and exhibition space. His background in photography informs his recurring interest in the process, and limitations of photographic seeing. Ahmed’s work explores the articulation and perception of constructed temporalities, mediated experiences of land(scape), and the peculiar human traces inscribed in quotidian spaces. Ahmed earned his BFA in Photography from Herron School of Art at IU Indianapolis, and received his MFA from Cornell University.

DEADLINES:

Deadline for initial submissions:  June 22nd, 2019
