“Recognizing the amazing quality of work being produced by woman photographers in Asia”
Deadline: July 10, 2017
2017 ASIAN WOMEN PHOTOGRAPHERS’ SHOWCASE FIFTH EDITION
Asian women photographers are invited to submit work for inclusion in a slideshow curated by Yumi Goto (of Reminders Project and Photography Stronghold) and Emmeline Yong (Objectifs). The slideshow projection will be part of the Women in Film & Photography Showcase at Objectifs (Singapore), 11 Oct to 19 Nov 2017.
The Women in Film & Photography Showcase at Objectifs is a tribute to the artists, photographers and filmmakers who have created works that tell stories with impact, break boundaries and inspire us.
The photo essays, series and bodies of submitted work may be about any issue, event or person but must have been photographed in the applicant’s native country. Completed bodies of work and ongoing projects are both acceptable.
Applicants who are ethnically Asian but were born outside of Asia are also eligible, but must submit a body of work photographed in their forefathers country. We have received numerous questions about this stipulation, so would like to provide the following random examples:
1. A woman brought up in France but born in Cambodia may submit work from Cambodia.
2. An American woman with a Chinese mother and Filipino father may submit work from China or the Philippines.
3. A half-Asian woman is also eligible.
See below for a list of Asian countries*.
Approximately 10 to 20 works will be selected for the slideshow projection, to be screened during an evening of the showcase at Objectifs. The slideshow may also travel to other festivals, with the permission of the participating photographers.
There are no participation fees and production of the slideshow will be undertaken by Objectifs. Photographers may submit more than one body of work for consideration. However, you must submit each one as a new entry. Submit your work here.
