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

DongGang International Photo Festival aims to feature a quality selection of photography projects from around the world. Festival’s open call is devoted to offering a platform and supporting photography, showcasing photography and related media from emerging and established artists.

This year's theme is 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.
