Great Photography Publication Opportunity

February 11, 2015



$2000 in Cash Awards

ENTRY FORM [link] < < < < < <

The International Photography Annual 4
An Award-winning Juried Publication of Works of Contemporary Photography & Photo-based Art

Including a $1,200 first place award
Remember, INPHA is not a gallery exhibition. It does not require shipping works to Manifest. It is an award-winning non-profit hardcover publication with cash awards.
INPHA is open to a very broad range of lens-based and photographic submissions. This is not just for ‘photographers’ and ‘photography’ but also for anyone working creatively in a visual art (or design) field with work that incorporates the lens or photographic process in some significant way, including manipulated and mixed processes.

As with all Manifest projects, we are open to learning just what’s being done that fits within this broad scope.

The goal of Manifest’s annual international publication of contemporary photography is to support the recognition, documentation, and publication of excellent, current, and relevant photographic art on an ongoing annual basis. In 2012 INPHA became the third in a suite of annual Manifest books charting contemporary art around the world. In early 2013 the INPHA 1 received a bronze medal award in the 2013 IPPY Book Awards in New York City (Photography category) from the Independent Publisher Association. It joined the International Painting Annual and award winning International Drawing Annual as a major new product of Manifest Press. This project represents a further expression of Manifest’s unique process for assembling diverse and compelling multi-national projects, as well as its commitment to a wide variety of methods for creative visual expression. Learn more about previous INPHA volumes and the artists involved here.

Why Photography?
Some may say that time and space are simply aspects of light. Light is a symbol of spirituality, purity, consciousness, and enlightenment. Time and distance are measured by the assumed limitation of light. The phenomenon is considered a particle, like dust, and a wave, like energy. Without light, the warmth of the sun, the nourishment of our planet, we would not exist.

We were born with lenses. We are light-based beings.

Today we swim in a sea of light based life. Whole days and weeks are spent interacting with flat screens beaming information across narrow space into our private lenses and brains. The conduit of our communications is light, by many means and many lenses. This is to such a degree as to make photography, light based imagery, nearly invisible. It has become like air. We exist so co-dependently with it that we hardly notice. Yet this does not diminish its power, nor importance. And by way of the INPHA Manifest aims to uncover and contextualize truly exceptional works, those which rise above the every day, which epitomize not only excellent photography (or other lens based work) but exceptional art regardless of the media.
For this call for submissions Manifest is eager to receive works in a wide range of types, including traditional, digital, and experimental photography, video*, and other lens-based work. As with its other Annuals, Manifest is open to unexpected solutions, broad interpretation, and surprise. Works submitted must clearly feature the photographic/lens-based process as a primary, but not exclusive, characteristic.
*note that artists submitting time-based art (video, etc.) must realize that for the purpose of the publication only still imagery will be used to represent the project in print.

 The International Photography Annual is open to any artist submitting original works of art created within the timeframe of 2012 – 2015. Professionals and students in ALL disciplines are encouraged to submit. Manifest is eager to receive works in a wide range of applications with the qualification being that artwork submitted is representative of high quality “photography or lens-based art.”

Note that artists who previously exhibited at Manifest or had work included in our publication projects ARE eligible to submit. Our juries are always conducted blind, and we do not disqualify folks who have success in past juries.
