Calling for international artists for the 7th Singapore International Photography Festival!
The theme for this year’s festival is Departing and Arriving, which addresses the sense of identity, belonging and journey in artistic creation. The theme connects to the heart of Singapore, a nation built up of migrants over the last two centuries. As a young nation we question, search, trace and grow into being ”Singaporean” – a nationality of diverse religion, beliefs, and languages.
From a global perspective, Departing and Arriving also points to ongoing human movement, of commonalities between the experiences and encounters of different societies around the world. The festival hopes to uncover stories from communities and individuals of the past and present, as well as the characteristics of the artistic journey—where an idea or vision is expanded to a myriad of possibilities expressed through installation, videos, drawings and multimedia works.
Ultimately, the theme is open to interpretation, and SIPF seeks diverse proposals from the international community for showcase in Singapore.
The submission is open to all nationalities and are based on any subject in two main categories: International Portfolio and Photobook. Prizes include cash, publishing opportunities and the opportunity for international exposure in art and public spaces across the city as part of SIPF 2020.
Submission deadline by 30 June 2020. Submit your works at register.sipf.sg
The 7th edition of Singapore International Photography Festival will take place from 8 October – 13 December 2020.
