Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues

Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues
Deadline: April 1

The Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues creates a space for a socially engaged photographer to produce a compelling and dynamic body of work highlighting human rights and social issues.

Columbia College Chicago and Heartland Alliance, two internationally recognized institutions with Chicago roots dating back more than 120 years, partner in hosting the Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues. The fellowship is a unique public commitment to socially engaged art, combining Columbia's dedication to academic excellence and developing authentic, creative voices with Heartland Alliance's bold history of advocating for the rights of the world's most vulnerable populations.

This postgraduate fellowship creates an opportunity for a socially engaged photographer to immerse themselves in the community of Heartland Alliance and to produce a new, original, and compelling body of photographic work that speaks to the human rights and social issues revealed through these experiences. By engaging with the Heartland Alliance community of participants and practitioners, the fellowship allows the artist to create a true connection between subject, audience, and community. This serves the larger goal of the fellowship, which is to use photographic practice to elevate our collective awareness of social, economic, and cultural issues and to inspire positive social change.

In addition to their work with the Heartland Alliance community in the greater Chicago area, the fellow will also spend significant time at Columbia College Chicago, where they will be mentored by a Photography Department faculty member and will work with Columbia students. The fellow will also have a Heartland Alliance project sponsor dedicated to aid their immersion in the Heartland community and to provide valuable feedback during the nine-month project. The fellowship will culminate with a public presentation, exhibition and/or publication of the fellow’s newly created body of work at the completion of the fellowship period.

Because of the dynamic nature of the fellowship, a full-time commitment is required during the academic year (September to May). Fellowship hours will vary, as will the activities in which the fellow will be immersed. It is expected that the fellow will reside in Chicago during the term of the award.

A $25,000 stipend will be awarded for the 2019-20 academic year to support the fellow’s work. Talented individuals who have completed an MFA in photography or in another related creative field and who are committed to active immersion and participation with Heartland Alliance and Columbia College Chicago are encouraged to apply.

The Image Flow
Mill Valley, CA

The Image Flow invites applications for a 2 – 3 month Artist Residency program to support a visual artist working within photography and/or image-based media. This is a work-only residency; artists not local to the area are welcome to apply but will need to secure housing arrangements independently. The time frame for the residency is flexible, ideally taking place between the months of June and September 2019. 

Following the 2018 AIR call, we were so impressed with the quality of submissions from applicants that we decided to accept two artists, both working with analog processes. One artist created experimental photograms using our traditional black and white darkroom space, while the other continued a body of work in the gum bichromate process utilizing our alternative darkroom facilities. We are excited to once again host an artist (or artists) that can benefit from the use of our resources in 2019. 

The selected resident photographer will gain access to our photo studio and lighting, a dedicated workspace with Epson 7880 and 3880 printers, traditional and alternative darkrooms, and a limited supply of inkjet papers for printing purposes. Participants in the residency program are expected to use their time to pursue their own personal projects, which may include photographing, printing, or other work inherent to their specific endeavors.

University of Maryland Stamp Gallery: UN/Sustainable

UN/Sustainable
Deadline: April 1

University of Maryland Stamp Gallery
College Park, MD

In recent years there has been a resurgence of concern about sustainability as the world confronts and reacts to the ramifications of decisions, past and present. The impending environmental realities of the future give birth to revolutionary conversation and oftentimes protest. Artists sit at the forefront of these movements, using their stories to open the eyes of viewers and reflect upon their own relationships to the physical world. A lack of concern for the earth, and more widely the cultures and peoples that so heavily rely on nature, reflects larger structures of power at play and forces questions about our collective priorities. 

UN/Sustainable will examine these priorities through contemporary works that critically interact in bold and creative ways with the artist’s experience of the physical world and its future. The exhibition will feature a range of media and will seek to include art that asks: What is the role of sustainability in the art world? What is an artist’s responsibility to the environment in art creation? In documentation? In protest? Can art play a role in sustaining the earth or is it merely reflection on the issues?  How do culture and larger power structures affect environmental action and opinion? Are our ways of existing sustainable?

Submitted work may focus on concerns specific to the United States as well as be historically situated or centered on other cultures and regions. The works will reach a wide range of patrons, including but not limited to students and are thus encouraged to provoke dialogue and new ways of thinking. Selected artwork will be exhibited in Stamp Gallery in the Adele H. Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park.

Submission Guidelines:
Applicants must submit:
-Artist’s Statement about specific works being submitted
-Link to artist’s website (if applicable)
-Proposed works with title and short description (up to 200 words), year of production, and medium)
-Digital documentation of work
-5-10 images/files (JPEG 72 dpi), video/audio clips should be shared as a
link to a streaming site (with password information as necessary)

New York Center for Photographic Arts: Trees

Trees
Deadline: May 5

New York Center for Photographic Arts
New York, NY

Juror: Traer Scott

There are references to trees all around us – in music, literature, proverbs, etc. But they are also an iconic visual. Trees make up forests and jungles. They stand alone on hillsides creating lovely shadows. They can be tall and straight like a winter pine or bend in the wind. Limbs and branches create wonderful patterns against the sky. A tree will shade a child on a hot day; provide a sturdy posts to tie up the pet dog or hold a hammock off the ground, as well as support a backyard laundry line.

Send us your images of trees as you experience them – forests, single trees, branches, roots…

The New York Center for Photographic Arts (NYC4PA) invites photographers world-wide to submit images using any photographic process (print, image transfer, emulsion transfer, encaustic, black and white, etc.). Winners will receive $3,000 in cash awards, be featured in a New York Gallery Exhibition, on the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the BLACK AND WHITE 2018 catalog. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page.

This show seeks to exhibit the diverse and exciting ways that photographers use sequence and series in their work. Repetition and seriality are built into the every level of photography from the production process, to its aesthetic theory, to the real-life practice of taking pictures. Photographs are often seen as representations or repetitions of reality itself, all while photography itself shapes modern consciousness just as much as it re-creates it. Site:Brooklyn is looking for work that actively engages with all aspects of repetition and series in photography. This might include subject matter, formal qualities, method, presentation, and much else.

Aside from a fellow visual artist, resident artists can expect to share the house with a resident gardener and either a writer or performer/interdisciplinary artist/musician. All residents share the common thread of creating work that relates to the land or the environment in some meaningful way.

The residents will have three shared dinners a month which will be attended by the residency directors and one or more guests from the art/creative/farming community (two dinners will be prepared by a local chef, one will be a potluck). At these gatherings, there will be opportunities for structured critiques by established artists. Beyond these shared dinners, residents will be responsible for all their own meals.

The fellowship is part of CDS's Documentary Diversity Project, a three-year pilot program whose goal is to build pathways for more people of color to engage with the documentary arts and to become nonfiction storytellers, gatekeepers, and critical consumers; to support their achievements; and to promote their work.

- Opportunities to present work publicly.
- Space and time to refine and significantly enhance a portfolio and CV.
- The option to (co-)teach a course during the spring semester.

The individual selected for the fellowship will be expected to:

- Use the space and time the fellowship offers to significantly enhance a portfolio of documentary work (taking the form of fieldwork, production, and/or archival research, teaching expansion of MFA work), and to work closely with CDS faculty and staff to expand professional networks, capacities, and reach.
- Contribute to a creative, open environment by building relationships, engaging in dialogue, and sharing lived experiences.
- Spend at least 70 percent of the time in residence at CDS and participate in program activities (e.g., DDP weekly meetings).
- Engage in ongoing reflection on successes, challenges, and overall experience to help us gauge program impact.
- Mentor and engage with younger or otherwise less experienced documentarians, including a cohort of Emerging Documentary Artists.
