Der greif / Deadline: 04/13/23
Der Greif celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2023. To mark this milestone, we invite photographers to submit work reflecting on how image-making has evolved over the past decade and a half. Submissions on @picter_com should explore the theme of "Past & Present" and correspond with your perception of how photography has changed since Der Greif's founding.
Selected submissions will be displayed alongside imagery from Der Greif's archive at events in Munich (June 16-18) in collaboration with Pinakothek der Moderne (@pinakothekdermoderne) and ZIRKA (@zirka.space). These displays commemorate what we have accomplished with our community over the past 15 years.
Submit your work by April 13 to take part in this anniversary and our upcoming collaborations with renowned photography institutions and publications. We look forward to seeing your interpretation of this theme in your artistic practice.

1 project per submission
1 to 5 files per project
Allowed file types: JPG, MOV, MP4, MPG, M4V, M2TS
Videos: At least 1920px on the long edge, max 10 minutes

Join us in celebrating our anniversary and be selected to have your work shown at one of the special events we have planned throughout the year. Selected submissions will be displayed alongside imagery from Der Greif's archive at events in Munich (June 16-18) in collaboration with Pinakothek der Moderne and ZIRKA. These displays commemorate what we have accomplished with our community over the past 15 years.
Der Greif's team is also organizing additional events during Photo London, at Les Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles, during Unseen in Amsterdam, and Paris Photo.
To showcase the selected work from this open call, we have developed three display formats. During the open call, we will provide more details about the planned events:
Juxtapose: a curated display that features photography from our archive of past submissions, placed alongside your work from the new open call
Slides & Sounds: image pairings shown in a slideshow, accompanied by live music
Contextualize: an image installation that invites visitors to use an interactive curation tool to create new image combinations
Don't miss the opportunity to benefit from our upcoming collaborations with other art and photography magazines. Loads of possibilities for you are in the making, to have your work seen, and for you to be in dialogue with other great works of photography's "Past & Present".
Get the chance to publish an Artist Feature on dergreif.org, a highly-frequented international source of photographic art.
Have your work published in any print, online, and social media materials we release related to our anniversary.
Dialogue and critique are important to the SPE mission.
Please join the conversation.
