International Deadline: April 1, 2018 – Manifest
presents an open call to artists for our 7th International Photography
Annual, an award-winning juried publication of works of contemporary
photography and photo-based art.
INPHA is not a gallery exhibition. It does not require shipping works
to Manifest. It is an award-winning non-profit hardcover publication
with cash awards.
INPHA is open to a very broad range of lens-based and photographic
submissions. This is not just for ‘photographers’ and ‘photography’ but
also for anyone working creatively in a visual art (or design) field
with work that incorporates the lens or photographic process in some
significant way, including manipulated and mixed processes.
The International Photography Annual is open to any artist
submitting original works of art created within the time frame of 2015 –
2018. 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 high quality “photography or lens-based art.
AWARDS & CASH PRIZES
First, Second, and Third Place awards for VISUAL works will be decided
by the jury committee. Each award winner will have a brief artist’s
statement included in the publication.
There will be three cash prizes of $1200, $500, and $300 for first, second, and third place winners.
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.
ESSAYS & OTHER DRAWING-RELATED WRITINGS (optional separate call for submissions)
Manifest calls for scholarly, critical, and creative writing for
publishing in each of its three publication projects. Information about
this, and a separate entry process, can be found here.
Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This
project will be juried by a 9-12 member panel of professional and
academic volunteer advisors representing a broad range of expertise from
across the U.S. and beyond.
Each artist/author selected for inclusion in the INPHA will receive one
complimentary copy of the publication. In 2011 the INDA 5 was awarded a
national silver medal award from the Independent Publishers Association
in their New York City ceremony and the INPHA 1 followed it with a
bronze in 2013, and the INDA 8 took another bronze in 2015, competing
with such publishers as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Whitney
Museum of Art. Manifest’s books are distributed to bookstores across the
country, including museum bookstores, and are available through
Amazon.com as well as at Manifest Gallery and on the Manifest website.
Arts patrons, artists, professors, and art students around the world
collect our publications, and our books are often used to supplement
course work in college level classes.
