OPEN THEME

Guest-Editor Joanna Milter is interested in reviewing a wide variety of works authored from many different contemporary perspectives. Innovative approaches to all genres of photography, as well as rigorous technical execution and refined aesthetics are therefore essential to successful submissions. Photographers can submit up to 10 photographs drawn from either a single body of work, from different series, and/or as stand-alone images.

Joanna will directly review all submissions (no shortlisting) and select the 12 photographers and portfolios she feels most deserve the be on the industry’s radar this winter. In doing so Joanna will also thread through all the different works selected an inspiring common narrative gifting this new JRNL issue with a curatorial character all its own.

 


ELIGIBLE WORK

JRNL is all analog: all images submitted must have been captured either on film (any format or type) or using other analog imaging processes (paper, glass, alternative processes, etc.). No digital captures are accepted. Works shot on film, then scanned and postedited are all eligible to be entered.

JRNL strives to present photography that is current and reflective of today’s critical focuses and societal narratives: work entered must have been thus created after January 2010

ABOUT JRNL

JRNL is FotoFilmic’s new quarterly newsprint publication. Each edition is associated with a monthlong JRNL Open Call juried & guest-edited by an influential curator or editor of photography, who reviews all submissions to pick and curate 12 different photographers into a new issue. Published photographers each receive 2 full spreads in it to present their work, accompanied by a small writeup from the juror/guest-editor thereby providing invaluable feedback. In addition to the spreads, the guest editor also awards the JRNL issue’s front & back covers to his/her top selected photographer.

The 12 published photographers each receive 1 complimentary JRNL copy in the mail at no cost. JRNL copies become available for purchase online around that same time, and are further distributed internationally following our exhibition programs at select partnering venues in Canada, USA, Australia, Europe and Asia.
