On behalf of ourselves, Parts & Crafts, Tourisms, and The Thousands Melbourne, we are very pleased and enormously excited to announce the call for submissions for the inaugural IPF Photo Prize 2012.
The Independent Photography Festival (IPF) will utilise the strengths and skills of the photographic community HWC so prides itself in being a part of to further bring to the forefront the multi-faceted, far-reaching, diverse, and prolific nature of what we’re all working hard at.
The Photo Prize is one of a week-long programme of events to be held in Melbourne from Monday 2 - Sunday 8 April 2012, designed - and aiming - to celebrate and highlight the best of what our community of independent and autonomous photographers and creatives has to offer.
We’ll be exhibiting all acceptable submissions after a preliminary review as a part of the IPF 2012 program, with all prints on sale to the public by silent auction, and with all proceeds from work(s) sold returned to the artist(s).
We’ve also asked some of our more local friends to help us create a set of relevant and righteous prizes for our 3 Prize Categories (Judge’s Panel 1st & 2nd Place and a People’s Choice Award) and we’re gunning for a couple more big boy prizes to add to the mix, so until we have all that locked in, we’re holding back on what’s on offer, but rest assured we’ll look after you.
We might try and make a publication of the work after the event, too.
Head over to the temporary IPF site and click on the Submissions Form link, read the T&C’s, pay, and post your prints to us.
Please be aware and keep in mind this is a call out for PRINTED IMAGES and not digital files (JPGs, TIFs, etc).
All entries must be posted, to be received by THURSDAY 1 MARCH 2012 (01/03/12) at 5PM AEST, to:
13-23 FARADAY ST
MELBOURNE VIC 3053
Stand by for more info on the Photo Prize and IPF - we’ll be dropping the whole thing over the next couple months.
We’re very much looking forward to receiving all your entries, and if you have any questions whatsoever about it, shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work it out.
