Spectacle | Call for EntriesPosted on Mai 2, 2013 by ACMV
ACMV is now accepting photographic submissions based under the broad theme “Spectacle”.
Selected submissions will be presented in a one-time public projection at the Belfast Crescent Arts Centreduring the opening weekend of the International Belfast Photo Festival 2013 in Northern Ireland, taking place this June.
About the themeThroughout history ‘Spectacle’s created visually stimulating and enthralling trappings that continue to capture the attention of mankind, manifesting in many forms both natural and man-made.
Our broad definition includes spectacle in otherness, suffering, death, beauty, decay and subjects that are enlivened by the act or process of photography itself, as well as our desire for the visually enticing image, that moment which excites, exhilarates and entices the curiosity of the viewer.
Recognising that ‘Spectacle’ sits at the very heart of photography’s identity and history, we invite photographers to submit photographic projects that interrogate, challenge and extend notions of visual spectacle.
The second edition of Belfast Photo Festival aims to explore the manner in which photographers have photographed ‘Spectacles’ in their many forms, seizing the opportunity to record their intense visual impact, demonstrating the fundamental relationship between the ‘Spectacle’, its viewer and photography itself.
We welcome entries from professional, student and amateur photographers both nationally and internationally, being keen to support all disciplines of photographic practice.
Deadline for entries is May 11th 2013, midnight CEST.
