Submission Guidelines

Written by NYPD on . Posted in New York Photo Diary

  • Deadline for entry is Thursday, September 1st 2016, at 12:00am EST. Works submitted after this date may not be eligible for consideration.
  • The “Borders” exhibition will take place at Carmel by the Green, located near Bethnal Green tube station, from Thursday, October 6th to Tuesday, December 6th 2016, with an opening reception on October 6th.
  • The call is open to anyone aged 18 and over, and who is a practicing photographer or lens-based artist, ideally with connections to the New York or tri-state area. Work on this theme from other locations may be considered.
  • Works for consideration should be emailed to [email protected] with the subject “Borders Exhibition”.  Please include a maximum of three (3) works, in digital format (jpeg, max 2mb per file), and an artist’s statement of up to 500 words. Please do not submit materials in the form of links.
  • Artists must also supply the following information regarding their submissions: title of works, dimensions of prints (length, width, & depth if applicable), material, year(s) created, and edition number (if applicable). For example: “Untitled (Borders), 14 x 11 inches, Chromogenic print, 2016, Edition 1/10.”
  • The selected artists will be notified by September 6th, and artwork must be delivered to Carmel by the Green by September 25th for installation. Artists may either ship their work directly to the gallery or arrange to have it printed in London, and are responsible for costs incurred with either method. Works that arrive at Carmel by the Green after September 25th cannot be guaranteed to be exhibited in the show.
  • Selected artists are encouraged to have their works framed. NY Photography Diary can supply A3-sized frames, or resources for obtaining inexpensive, ready-made frames in London. Large, unframed works will be pinned to the walls.
  • If selected artists desire to have their works printed in London, NY Photography Diary can provide a list of trusted printers. However, NY Photography Diary will not be responsible for ensuring the quality of prints. Any works printed through such an arrangement will be subject to the terms and conditions set forth by the independent printer, and we encourage artists who choose this route to begin working with a printer as soon as possible.
  • All works will be available for sale during the exhibition, and a 20% commission will be taken on any sales, which will go to the editors and curators who have organized the show. Selected artists will set the price of their own works.
  • After the exhibition’s closure, the artists will be contacted by NY Photography Diary to arrange for the collection or return of unsold works.
