April 15th, 2014
SVdP-100ProfilesOfPoverty-Flyer_800

Here’s news from St. Vincent de Paul Georgia, about a new photographic effort they’ve launched documenting poverty. Entries due on May 15th.

“For one in five Georgians, poverty is a daily reality – with basic necessities like food and shelter far from guaranteed. And with one of the lowest rates of social mobility in the country, it’s likely that many Georgia children born into poverty will never escape.

To bring greater visibility to this issue, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Georgia (SVdP) is creating 100 Profiles of Poverty – a photo gallery depicting the plight of Georgia’s most vulnerable populations.

The exhibit, which coincides with our 100th anniversary in fall 2014, will serve as a thought platform for discussion and incite a clear call for others to join our fight to break the cycle of poverty. Top photographers from across the state are participating – coming together to capture the challenges facing this population as well as moments of hope and progress.

We launched our call for entries last week – and photographers (students, amateurs, professionals alike) are invited to participate. More information here: and on our Facebook page.”

Call for Entries: Aint-Bad Magazine Seeks The American South

April 7th, 2014

Aint-Bad Magazine is currently seeking photographic works and writings that strongly define the following: The American South.

The American South is both a reality and a fiction, a conceptual and a cultural entity. As such, it has been famously challenged and perpetuated through photography in the form of singular iconic images in the work of photographers like William Eggleston and in the form of the photo-essay, bridging journalism and fine art as in the work of Walker Evans and James Agee.

Issue No. 8 of Aint-Bad, a magazine founded in Savannah, Georgia, seeks photographs and essays or photo-essays which engage in contemporary conceptions of The American South and how it is defined and being re-defined; how it effects the rest of the U.S.; the socio-cultural impact of the region as a new reality and a new fiction.

We are accepting works made in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia.

A select number of artists chosen for this issue may also be included in an exhibition at The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center in Atlanta, Georgia in June 2014 and an additional exhibition opportunity in Savannah, GA is being formulated.”
