Ruth Dusseault’s “PRESENTISM” Seeks Short Films – Due July 5th

June 2nd, 2014

For all the details on this new effort from Ruth Dusseault, please see the Call for Entries over at Whitespace. Should be fun!

“Presentism is a philosophy of time that states nothing in the past or future exists. The only reality is the present moment, which is redefined. A moment is no longer like the blade of a knife, gone the instant it is felt. Rather, it is an extended duration of conscious experience. Reality is also redefined. The world is no longer characterized as a set of historic and anticipated facts, as in “once and for all.” The presentist defines reality as a world that relies on constant survey. And when events happen in multiple places simultaneously, they are part of the same reality.

We seek short films and video works (no more than 10 minutes) from filmmakers and artists that explore these ideas. How do we experience the present? What events today constitute a sense of the present? What activities constitute a constant survey of facts and ideas? How is the concept of presentism expanded globally in the era of live data? How does the moving image define a duration of extended consciousness? In what ways might the human condition change if removed from the past and the future? All genres will be accepted including documentary, narrative, animation and experimental.”

[Call for Entries] St. Vincent de Paul Georgia – Profiles of Poverty

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.”
