Singapore International Photography Festival 2014 | open call


The 4th Singapore International Photography Festival - SIPF 2014 - is now receiving submissions from photographers worldwide. In addition to the open call, there is a themed call for a showcase exhibition "An Ocean of Possibilities".

Open Call Showcase is the core exhibition within the festival since 2008. For the 4th edition, SIPF is collaborating with Noorderlicht International Photofestival (The Netherlands) with a themed open call in addition to the existing Open Call.

The Open Call (truly open with no theme) seeks to discover fresh photographic works from all over the world. With no specific genre, theme, subject, the Open Call is a survey on the trend, the concern, the approach, the practice, the idea, the concept employed by the photographers worldwide.

The 4th SIPF curators - Dr Charles Merewether, Dr Adele Tan, Tay Kay Chin, and Alexander Supartono will select 40 photographers from the submissions. Based on exhibition sites, each curator will critically select the works, and curate the works based on theme or subject matters, or g approaches, or even by geographical region.

Across oceans, Noorderlicht and SIPF collaborate on a themed open call titled “An Ocean of Possibilities”. With this special open call, we seek to create wider audience, and likewise to pose a good challenge for the practicing professionals The selected works made by both festivals will simultaneously exhibit in The Netherlands and Singapore in 2014. We hope this collaboration will establish a deeper discussion on photography across two continents, and to create possible opportunities for participating photographers.

Deadline: 31 March 2014
