2nd International Photography Annual (INPHA)
A Competitive Annual Publication of Works of Contemporary Photography and Lens-based Art
(and writing about photography or light)

$1000 in cash awards

The goal of Manifest’s Annual International Publication of Contemporary Photography and Lens-based Art is to support the recognition, documentation, and publication of excellent, current, and relevant photographic art on an ongoing basis.

In 2012 the INPHA became the third in a suite of annual Manifest publications charting contemporary art around the world. It joined the International Painting Annual and award winning International Drawing Annual as an important new product of Manifest Press. This project represents a further expression of Manifest’s unique process for assembling diverse and compelling peer-reviewed multi-national projects, as well as its commitment to a wide variety of methods for visual creative expression and documentation.

For this competitive peer-reviewed call for submissions Manifest seeks works in a wide range of types, including traditional, digital, and experimental photography, video*, and other lens-based work. As with its other projects, Manifest is open to unexpected solutions, broad interpretation, and surprise. Works submitted must clearly feature the photographic/lens-based process as a primary, but not exclusive, characteristic.

*note that artists submitting time-based art (video, etc.) must realize that for the purpose of the publication only still imagery will be used to represent the project in print.

The International Photography Annual is open to any artist submitting original works of art created within the time frame of 2010 – 2013. Professionals and students in ALL disciplines are encouraged to submit. Manifest is eager to receive works in a wide range of applications with the qualification being that artwork submitted is representative of “photography or lens-based art” of the highest caliber.

Media (artwork)
Open to any media applicable to the practice of photography or lens-based work, including but by no means limited to traditional, digital/new media, photography, printmaking, mixed media, collage, etc. All are possibly valid.

Submission deadline for entry: April 1, 2013
