OPEN THEME

Guest Curators Rachel & Gregory Barker of famed London publishing house STANLEY/BARKER are interested in reviewing a wide variety of works authored from many 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 may submit up to 10 photographs from either a single body of work or from different series.

Guest curators/editors directly review all submissions (no shortlisting) and select 12 photographers and portfolios from which to thread a common narrative into each new JRNL issue.

 


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.
