Edition 3: The Enigma of Objects | Call for Submissions

CALL | The Enigma of Objects | Call for Submissions - Sept 2023

Edition 3 of The Enigma of Objects is accepting micro-stories about objects that emit sound and act as records of our memories. Open to artists, writers, musicians and others. All that’s needed is a photo of your object and 200 words about its relevance to the current theme :

The upcoming edition is titled RECORDS. I invite objects capable of holding music and emitting sounds. The terms “music” and “sound” are defined quite loosely for the purposes of this edition. The focus is on memories that live on in objects and nest in the sound waves they release.


Photographers are invited to submit works in response to UNITY, images that have been created to express the state of being united or disunited, joined as a whole or torn apart, whether from an individual, collective or other perspective.   

Exhibition will be curated entirely on the felt process - how the panel responds emotionally and somatically to works received. Felt Photographic celebrates the fundamental call to create - to help make sense of the world, who we are and our place in it. Felt Photographic believes that all art has value and our responses are entirely subjective, therefore submissions will not be critiqued, scored or judged - simply felt, noticed and appreciated.

Which of your images is calling to be seen? Which needs to be felt?

Life is a stream of colors. Red, blue, yellow, and all the possible combinations in between these primary colors without forgetting black and white surround us everywhere.

Send us your images - preferably a cohesive body of work or portfolio - both where colors may not just influence the pictures, but where it may also be the subject solely. The contest is open to any color photography interpretation, from photojournalism, street photography, artistic photography, portrait, nude, landscapes, nature, wildlife, urban, architecture, fashion, fine art or documentary photography.

Winners will receive $1,000 in cash awards, their winning image(s) or full portfolio published in AAP Magazine #35, extensive press coverage and global recognition.


Photography is all about light – its presence as well as its absence. There is an iconic photograph of Grand Central Station with streams of sunlight filling the airspace as it reflects off dust particles in the air. For photographers the time of day an image is captured can be as important as the selection of the subject itself.  What may be nothing more than a snapshot at one time of day, becomes an impactful image at another.  Strategically placed lighting is critical in creating great portraits and late afternoon is a world of shadow and light that warms everything it touches. 


Nude Geographies

NUDE GEOGRAPHIES (an international juried photo exhibition) The nude form has been portrayed in art throughout history, from the classical era to the enlightenment and the modern era. The nude figure in western art–specifically in photography–has expressed ideals of female and male beauty along with other human qualities including life, energy, and an array of complicated human emotions.
