July 29 – August 18, 2021. PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a solo exhibition opportunity. Please submit a coherent portfolio that is suitable for a solo exhibition, an artist statement and a short bio. The portfolio should consist of at least 15 and at most 35 images. The submission may include one or two series, provided that the two series are suitable for a joint presentation in a single exhibition. There are no generic, stylistic or thematic constraints; photographers working in all photographic areas, genres and styles are welcome to submit their work.
The winner of this competition will be awarded a solo exhibition from July 29 – August 18, 2021.
PH21 Gallery will cover all printing and installation costs for the solo exhibition. In addition to the brick-and-mortar solo exhibition, the work of the winner will also be presented on a dedicated page of our website. The web page will include the artist statement and the bio of the photographer, together with the critical reviews by the curators.
Up to 10 other photographers will be offered the opportunity to present a mini-series of three photographs from their portfolio in the "Photographic Visions" group exhibition. Photographic Visions is a biannual exhibition at PH21 Gallery, showing mini-series of works of selected artists who submitted their portfolio for our solo exhibition competition. The Photographic Visions exhibition is also presented on a dedicated page on our website.
We will publish a catalogue for the solo exhibition and for the Photographic Visions exhibition as well. The catalogues (and the dedicated pages of the exhibitions on our website) will contain critical reviews by the curators of the exhibition. The exhibition catalogues will be available through Blurb Books.
