3 in 1 Call For Entries from Lithuania: Kaunas Photo Festival 2015

(Lithuania, since 2004) has been a festival of premieres for future stars of contemporary photography. Being a part of Photo Festival Union and Festivals Of Light Organization, KAUNAS PHOTO festival is the longest-running photographic festival in the Baltic states is a platform for dialogue around contemporary photographic creation between North and South, East and West. Today, more and more competitions (even highly ranked ones), galleries and festivals practice requesting artists to pay for almost every aspect of participation and exhibiting their works – from high entry fees to production of works, travel, accommodation.

folioPORT.org, on-line portfolio reviews’ platform of KAUNAS PHOTO festival, announces the open call for its third edition. The call is extended until 3 March, 2015

In the time of affluence of images and quest for visibility of newly created works, folioPORT.org reviews present a great opportunity to get the work reviewed by a large group of internationally acclaimed and decision-making photography experts from the four corners of the globe.

Moreover, the call for on-line reviews, bridging photographers and promoters of their work, incorporates the call for works for KAUNAS PHOTOfestival’s edition of 2015. It means that photographers can present works on any themes, but also can focus on the theme of KAUNAS PHOTO 2015, “Pursuit“. More than ten artists will be selected for exhibitions at Lithuania’s longest-running photo festival, while one of them will get the KAUNAS PHOTO STAR award – an invitation for a solo exhibition at the remarkable KAUNAS PHOTOGRAPHY GALLERY with trip, hotel, transportation of works or production of the exhibition covered by KAUNAS PHOTO festival. The call to enter works to folioPORT.org is open to all photographers regardless of their age, nationality, country of residence, styles & genres of photography. folioPORT.org is a platform where photography experts review mature, finished photographic series or images that make up coherent sets, unified under one title. folioPORT.org is open to all themes, styles, approaches, yet we expect series of photographs and picture stories only in sets of 12 images. Unshown and unpublished photography is a preference. Only works matching the theme of KAUNAS PHOTO festival 2015, “Pursuit”, will be considered for the KAUNAS PHOTO STAR award. The KAUNAS PHOTOGRAPHY GALLERY, venue of the exhibition of the award winner, is vast, and it will need to be filled with a consistent body of high quality works. Therefore photographers are encouraged not to submit single images or parts of small series, regardless of how beautiful or powerful they are. This is why the entry form photographers need to fill out contains questions about whether the works submitted have already been exhibited, published, and of how many images the series consists. Photographers having entered folioPORT.org reviews / competitions before are encouraged to submit different bodies of work than entered in previous years. “Pursuit“ is the theme of KAUNAS PHOTO festival 2015 Submission details on www.folioPORT.org
