A Juried Portfolio Showcase
The Light Factory / Deadline: 03/01/20
The Light Factory is pleased to announce its 12th Annuale, a photography competition that will showcase work from fine art photographers throughout the international photographic community. Applicants are encouraged to submit a cohesive body of work; all photographic techniques and approaches are welcome. Ultimately, the exhibition will consist of 4–6 photographers, each of whom will be represented by 5–7 images (size permitting).
The Light Factory is a center for photography located in Charlotte, North Carolina. TLF is dedicated to inspiring and empowering our community through thought-provoking exhibitions, world-class education, and vibrant community engagement. For over 45 years The Light Factory has featured artists such as Sally Mann, Ansel Adams, Tina Barney, Debbie Luster, Pinky Bass, Keith Carter, Annie Leibovitz, Ralph Gibson, Susan Kae Grant, Edward Weston, Jerry Uelsmann, Richard Renaldi, Bill Viola, Andres Serrano, Mary Ellen Mark, and many more.
The Light Factory's 12th Annuale is open to everyone. Entrants must enter 5–7 images from a specific series or body of work. Artists may submit up to two different applications. If you submit an installation, it should include only 5–7 images. Please include a short statement (no more than 150 words) about the work along with a current résumé or curriculum vitae.
Selected artists are responsible for packing (in a reusable container) and paying for the shipping and transit insurance of work to and from The Light Factory. An honorarium of $200 is awarded to accepted artists to help offset these costs. Please, no packing peanuts. Work may also be hand-delivered. All work must arrive ready to install. If the work is not gallery-ready or does not meet professional standards, it may be omitted from the exhibition. Accepted work that differs significantly from the entry images or that suffers from poor presentation will be disqualified. All work must arrive at The Light Factory by April 10, 2020. Accepted work will remain on display for the duration of the exhibition. All work will be returned (or should be picked up) by August 1, 2020. Artists are responsible for all shipping and travel costs.
Winners will be featured in an exhibition that will consist of 4–6 photographers, each of whom will be represented by 5–7 images (size permitting).
This year's juror is Julie Grahame.
All photographic techniques and approaches are welcome.
