Call for Submissions

*Recognizing the amazing quality of work being produced by woman photographers in Asia*

Exhibition & Slideshow curated by Yumi Goto
In collaboration with Objectifs’ Women in Film & Photography Showcase
Submission Deadline: 10 July 2015

in its fourth edition, the 2015 AWPS invites Asian women photographers to submit work for inclusion in a print exhibition and slideshow curated by Yumi Goto (of Reminders Project and Photography Stronghold). The print exhibition and slideshow screening will be part of the Women in Film & Photography Showcase at Objectifs (Singapore) from 21 October to 29 November 2015.

The Women in Film & Photography Showcase at Objectifs is a tribute to the artists, photographers and filmmakers who have created works that tell stories with impact, break boundaries and inspire us.

The photo essays, series and bodies of submitted work may be about any issue, event or person but must have been photographed in the applicant¹s native country. Completed bodies of work and ongoing projects are both acceptable.

Applicants who are ethnically Asian but were born outside of Asia are also eligible, but must submit a body of work photographed in their forefathers country (*For a list of Asian countries, please see below). We have received numerous questions about this stipulation, so would like to provide the following random examples:

1. A woman brought up in France but born in Cambodia may submit work from Cambodia.

2. An American woman with a Chinese mother and Filipino father may submit work from China or the Philippines.

3. A half­-Asian woman is also eligible.

Approximately 10 to 15 works will be selected for the slideshow. A curator’s choice of 4 to 6 works will be shortlisted for a print exhibition at Objectifs – Centre for Photography & Film.

There are no participation fees and production of the print exhibition and slideshow will be undertaken by Objectifs.
