SUMMER CALL

SUGGESTION

“Round the world! There is much in that sound to inspire proud feelings; but whereto does all that circumnavigation conduct? Only through numberless perils to the very point whence we started, where those that we left behind secure, were all the time before us. Were this world an endless plain, and by sailing eastward we could for ever reach new distances, and Moby Dick discover sights more sweet and strange than any Cyclades or Islands of King Solomon, then there were promise in the voyage. But in pursuit of those far mysteries we dream of, or in tormented chase of that demon phantom that, some time or other, swims before all human hearts; while chasing such over this round globe, they either lead us on in barren mazes or midway leave us whelmed.”

(Moby Dick or The Wale – Herman Melville)

 

ABOUT THE SUMMER CALL

PHROOM is pleased to launch his first call for projects meant to find amazing photography series that will become part of our collection, having the opportunity to join our artist list in a definitive way.

Submissions are open worldwide to photographers, lens-based and media artists with no restrictions in terms of age or genre.

WHAT SELECTED ARTIST RECEIVE

The work of the ten winners will be published on PHROOM magazine, both on our website and on our social pages, and will become a member of the PHROOM Artists list, having the chance to be selected in our various projects like exhibitions, events and commercial collaborations trough our Art Advisory service.
PHROOM reserves the right to contact some artists among the non-selected of this contest for future publications and collaborations.

JUDGING CRITERIA

PHROOM doesn’t want to judge the submitted projects but rather wants to find a number of photographic series suitable for dialogue with this specific curatorial project. The suggestion above does not have to be interpreted in a didactic way but rather it’s to be considered as a reflection input.
