INPHA 7: International Photography
By Manifest Creative Research Gallery

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.

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.

MEDIA (artwork)
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 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.

An Internet-based online International Photography Annual Resource website will be published to accompany the printed Annual. This will feature information and sample detail image for each artist included.

$40 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry.

Visit Manifest Gallery online to Apply. The online submission process is preferred. However, discs may be submitted (see details on Prospectus).
