The Curated Fridge Spring 2020 Show

with juror Alexa Becker

The Curated Fridge   /   Deadline: 04/04/20

The new refrigecurator is Alexa Becker, Acquisitions Editor for photography and art books for Kehrer Verlag!

After earning her Master's in Art History from the University of Heidelberg, Mrs. Becker started her career at Kehrer in 2003, where she is responsible for selecting and acquiring new photography-related projects.
Mrs. Becker provides artistic and marketing advice for photographers concerning the content and style of their work at several international portfolio reviews. She enjoys helping photographers and others appreciate the special qualities present in their work, in particular discovering novel, genuine visions of the world.

Mrs. Becker offers the point of view of a European art book publisher and is familiar with the overall art and photography market. As an acquiring editor for Kehrer, she is interested in projects that are based on a personal approach by the photographer towards the subject matter without it being evidently biographical.

Requirements

- Guidelines:
* Open to all photographers world wide, both amateur and professional. All mediums are invited. Previous participants are welcome to apply again.
* You can submit up to 5 images. As always, the submission is FREE!
* Submitted prints should not be bigger than 5x7" or 6x6".
* Try to avoid type if sending promo cards.
* If you send original artwork, please sign it on the back and specifically mention that it's for The Curated Fridge. All selected artwork will be archived after each Fridge Show. The rest will be destroyed. No artwork will be returned (unless you provide a stamped envelope). By sending original artwork, you agree to all the above.
* Accepted images will be posted on The Curated Fridge website and social media.

- Mail your artwork to:
Yorgos Efthymiadis
The Curated Fridge
281 Medford Street
Somerville, MA 02143

- Additionally, email the jpgs of the submitted files to: thecuratedfridge_at_gmail_dot_com
* Image specifications: 1280 on the longest side, 72 ppi, sRGB, .jpg
* Name your .jpgs like this: Mary_Jones_1, Mary_Jones_2 etc...
* Please, do not send .zip files
* Finally, include a link to your website or instagram (if any).

Again, you have to mail your prints AND email the .jpgs. The curator (if local) will be judging your images by printing quality as well as artistic, and will be installing the show on the fridge. The .jpgs will be used for promoting your work on the website and social media.
Please note that only complete submissions will be considered, so take your time and send over your materials as requested.

If printing is not your selling point or you think that your prints won't make it on time because you live outside the U.S., you can use a printing company (Shutterfly, Mpix etc). They are very affordable, fast and reliable.
