Gallery of Photography is pleased to announce a new collaboration with Junior Magazine, to bring you an exciting 6 month exhibition & project space to celebrate the opening of the Osman Suite (named after our Gallery founder, John Osman) in our recently extended bookshop.
This collaboration aims to showcase the best in emerging Irish photography. In light of this, Junior Magazine and Gallery of Photography are creating a free open call for work that centres on the notion of ‘Irish-ness’. We want to see new, challenging and most importantly, personal perspectives on the place we call home – exploring what it means to live in Ireland.
The aim of this collaboration is to create a platform for the Ireland’s emerging photographers and sell limited edition photographic prints. All photographs selected for exhibition in the Osman Suitewill be printed and framed in the Gallery of Photography’s Artist Digital Suite at no cost to the artist.
Junior Magazine will also be programming a series of meet-ups and community-building workshops in the Gallery of Photography where photographers will get a chance to share their work, engage with a wider photographic community and learn from the experience of others. These events will be an invaluable opportunity for photographers to develop their practice and foster relationships with their peers.
Please submit up to five images, ideally from a specific project, along with up to 250 words describing your work. Images must be submitted as low-res JPEGS (1000px on the long side, sRGB, 72dpi). Any submissions not adhering to these requirements will not be considered. While we are primarily selecting work for this exhibition, submissions may also be considered for future JUNIOR publications. Deadline 14th October 2017.
