Open Call: Water Works Wanted for 2017 Kaunas Photo Festival
Kaunas, UNESCO City of Design, is seeking submissions for its 14th Annual Photo Festival.
The focus of this year’s edition is water and everything to do with it — lack and excess, drought and flood, rain and snow, chemistry and biology, life and death, surface and depth, economy and ecology, adventure and accident, coastlines and islands, rivers and lakes, fear and relaxation, glaciers and icebergs, pollution and treatment, extinction and conservation, bridges and ferries, connection and separation.
Kaunas Photo is the largest annual photographic festival based in the Baltic States, operating since 2004. In 2017, in partnership with LensCulture, the festival offers an array of opportunities for photographers from the broader programme to the Kaunas Photo Star 2017 Award – the prize being a solo exhibition at the largest photography gallery in the Baltic region – to a range of paid residencies.
With this open call, Kaunas invites photographers from the UCCN and around the world to submit 12-15 works on themes related to water, exploring its form, complexity and inherent contradictions.
Deadline – 1st April 2017, Kaunas time.
