Syngenta-photographyThrough compelling imagery, the Syngenta Photography Award aims to draw attention and stimulate dialogue around key global challenges. The award offers photographers an international platform for their work and also provides the opportunity to explore issues of global significance. This year photographers are invited to explore the theme Scarcity-Waste.

Be part of a creative dialogue about our changing planet. The very best photography reaches beyond language. It is a powerful medium for communicating across boundaries, cultures, and different perceptions of the world.

The Syngenta Photography Award is designed for both professional and amateur photographers. There are two categories – the Professional Commission and the Open Competition – with US$65,000 in prizes, including a professional commission with a grant of up to US$25,000.

Entries are judged by a distinguished international judging panel chaired by the author and curator William A. Ewing.

Images from the Award will be exhibited in March 2015 at Somerset House, one of London’s most celebrated arts and culture venues.

The theme of the second Award is “Scarcity-Waste”. It draws attention to arguably the greatest challenge the world faces: how can we ensure there is enough land, food and water for future generations? The resources we use and the waste we create today means we already need the equivalent of one and a half planets.

The application deadline for both the Professional Commission and Open Competition is September 15, 2014.

How to Apply

The Award is free to enter. Applications to the Syngenta Photography Award must be submitted by completing the online application form on the website.

memefest

For the 11th MemeFest – the Festival of Socially Responsible Communication and Art – international entries are invited on the theme: RADICAL INTIMACIES: DIALOGUE IN OUR TIMES, with categories for visual communication practice; critical writing and participatory art.

Memefest is an artist-led project run by Memefest Kolektiv, based in Slovenia and Australia.

Dialogue is tirelessly presented as ‘the’ solution to the problems of ‘our’ times – in art, war, love, democracy and even in the workplace. In fact, dialogue has been central to the ethos of Memefest since its inception back in 2002. But what if dialogue is not working?

RADICAL INTIMACIES: DIALOGUE IN OUR TIMES is the theme of this year’s Memefest. We’re trying to ask a dfficult question in order to honestly explore all the complicated failures and the hopeful potentialities that feed our faith in dialogue – politically, creatively, laboriously and intimately.

Respond to this proposition in the Memefest 2014 Friendly Competition.

Read more about the festival’s outlines here, or go directly to the category that interests you the most and check them out here: Visual Communication practice, Critical Writing and the participatory art/communication category ‘Beyond…’!

Deadline for your submissions is September 20th.

Participation is free of charge and there is no age limit or any other restriction.

AWARDS

A special Award in each category will be given in collaboration with the Faculty of Health Arts and Design, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne: Memefest/Swinburne Award for Imaginative Critical Intervention.

This Award will be part of our artist/designer-communicator/theorist in residence program. We will fly one author of a chosen project in each category (Visual communication practice, Beyond…, Critical writing) to Melbourne, Australia.

You will be able to participate in an international symposium and a special workshop for extradisciplinary investigation at the Swinburne Faculty of Health Arts and Design. You will be invited to collaborate with some of the best hearts and minds in communication/design/art on projects that will result in a public intervention in the city of Melbourne.

About Memefest: Memefest Kolektiv is interested in creating situations that have the potential to engage people in transformative social relations through communication, design and art. We are based in Slovenia and Australia. The loose Kolektiv enjoys its many different roles and integrates education, curatorial and editorial work, publishing, investigation, organization of events, facilitation and production of various media including communication in the public sphere, theory, photography, design and art. We work in both- physical and virtual public space and usually like to connect them.

Since 2010, ArtOxygen (ArtO2) has been organizing [en]counters, an international public art festival in Mumbai. A call for Indian artists, living and practising in India, for [en]counters Spaces in Transition 2015 festival, to address issues of transport and city mobility through art interventions.

By inviting artists to intervene in Mumbai’s public spaces, the [en]counters project explores issues which affect the city’s everyday life and which make it an extraordinary and unique place.

After investigating themes of identity, water, land, power and air in previous editions, the 2015 initiative is titled Spaces in Transition and will consider the issue of transportation and mobility in the city. Each day, over 14 million people move around on Mumbai’s public means of transportation. It is an outstanding amount of people, experiencing the city and relating to one another every day in a different way.

Scheduled between February to March 2015, the project is supported by Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development.

GUIDELINES

We are looking for exciting, out-of-the-box works able to trigger a reaction from the audience by throwing different perspectives on the act of commuting and moving in the city, by questioning and challenging established norms.

We are not looking at permanent works to embellish public spaces, but rather temporary interventions able to prompt critical thinking.

We would like to include a variety of art forms: video works, performances, temporary installations, sculptures, interventions and guerrilla actions.

As our aim is to expand the knowledge and awareness of art practices in open spaces and in an Indian context, we will organize a series of outreach activities (seminars, conferences, and workshops with schools and art/architecture colleges).

This call is meant for artists of Indian origin living and practicing in India.

ArtO2 will be able to:

  • cover the production expenses incurred by the artist
  • pay an artist fee
  • cover travel and accommodation expenses for Indian artists not residing in Mumbai

Deadline for applications: 12 September 2014

Invited artists will be requested to prompt a reaction from audience-commuters on the following questions: how is Mumbai’s landscape perceived? How can trains, buses, cabs and rickshaws be turned into places for temporary sociability? And how can the suspended period between departure and destination become an occasion for critically re-think urban and public spaces?

About ArtOxygen – Founded in 2009, ArtOxygen (ArtO2) is a Mumbai-based art initiative curating and producing public art projects. Since 2010, ArtO2 organizes [en]counters, a public art festival dealing with issues affecting the everyday life of Mumbai. In May 2014, ArtO2 was invited to curate at Cattle Depot, Hong Kong, an exhibition of Indian and Chinese artists in collaboration with C&G ArtPartment. In September 2013, ArtO2 was invited to curate and organize the participation of Indian and international artists at the biennial Haein Art Project at Haeinsa Temple in South Korea.

Call for applications for Counterhegemony: Art in a Social Context, a 7-week residential artist fellowship programme at NIDA Art Colony in Lithuania. 5-8 artists will be selected for the session, to be held November/December 2014.

Counterhegemony: Art in a Social Context is a seven-week Artist Fellowship Program at NIDA Art Colony in Lithuania that looks at genealogy, or the epistemic context within which bodies of knowledge become intelligible and authoritative, as a point of departure in art production. It is aimed at any art or cultural production that exists within or in reference to social forms of resistance that coalesce in opposition to hegemonic structures. This could include sculpture, video, installation, public art, site-specific work, interventions, post-studio art, discursive formats, performance, queer/feminist or postcolonial work, and any other cultural production that does not take for granted or erase knowledge of the institutional container which frames art, discourse, and the legitimization of knowledge.

It is comprised of three modules:

(1) A Geneaology of the Participant

(2) Law as Raw Material

(3)  Foucault Lab.

There are two components to the artist residency: one is the artist’s individual studio practice. The second is a think tank consisting of readings, presentations, discussions, performances, and text jams related to the three discursive modules, culminating in a group exhibition at the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, Lithuania, the largest museum for contemporary art in the Baltic States and the home of the Baltic Triennial, as well as a public presentation/series of panel discussions (created by artist residents) at the Reading Room of the Contemporary Art Centre.

Five to eight artists will be selected for the “Counterhegemony: Art in a Social Context” Fellowship Program, each of whom will receive a 600 euro stipend, free housing, travel expenses to and from the NIDA Art Colony, and a small exhibition production stipend.

“Counterhegemony: Art in a Social Context” Fellowship Program will take place from November 1–December 19, 2014 and is curated by Andrea Liu. The exhibition at Contemporary Art Centre will take place from December 4–21, 2014.

Deadline for applications: September 17 2014

kosice filmmaker residency call

Cinefil Košice and K.A.I.R. Košice Artist in Residence announce an open call for a filmmaker residency. The chosen artist will create an original short film over a period of 10 weeks whose theme should in a creative way relate to the city of Košice, Slovakia.

The residency starts 6 October and ends 15 December. . The resident is not obliged to spend the whole 10 weeks in Košice. Final film will be of course presented in Košice at the end of the stay.

Filmmakers commit to create an audiovisual artwork during their stay in Kosice in any of these categories:

  • Fiction film
  • Documentary film
  • Animated film
  • Dance film

In case of interest send us by email to film@kinousmev.sk:

  • CV
  • Portfolio consisting of 5 finished works (in case they are online, we only require the links)
  • Short motif or a theme of the film you wish to realise in Košice

Deadline: 8 September 2014

Chosen candidate will get:

  • 1500€
 fee
  • Travel reimbursement up to 200€
  • Accommodation
  •  Atelier / Studio
  • Technical support
  • Production and local support

Long term efforts of Cinefil o.z. are focused on returning the best of film to the city of Košice. The priority though is the re-opening of a good (art) cinema. We have a concrete cinema in mind – Kino Úsmev at Kasárenské námestie in Košice. In order to to get film out of the poor-neighbour position in relation to other artistic disciplines we have decided to prepare a new thing – filmmaker residency that will result in an original short film. We will borrow experiences from K.A.I.R. Košice Artist in Residence, that works with residencies and their development for several years now. Independent film production is something that we miss in the city and it also is something that puts stress on the fact that (quality) production needs a space for exhibition.
