GuatePhoto invites photographers from all around the world to submit their work to the Open Call. Fifteen portfolios and 30 photobooks will be selected as part of two of the main exhibitions of the Festival which will take place at the Museum of Modern Art Carlos Merida and the Grand Gallery of the Hipodromo del Sur.
There is no specific theme for the Open Call or Festival. We accept proposals from all individual photographers or collectives of all nationalities.
There are 2 categories to participate in, based on what we consider to be the most relevant in contemporary image production:
We are looking for a series of 10 to 15 images. These images can range in style, categories include: artistic, documentary, journalistic, personal images or the mix of them. We are interested in bodies of work that contain a narrative, tell a story or convey a strong message. We accept proposals that combine the image with other visual arts such as videos and installations that complement the work to be presented.
We are looking for finished photobooks and dummies from individuals or publishers. They may be independent, commercial, published, self-published, or unpublished. We are interested in original and new approaches to photobook making. A hard copy must be sent before August 31st, 2015 to the following address:
La Fototeca / “Open Call”
