Call for Entry: Soho Photo Gallery 4/21

Call for Entry: Soho Photo Gallery, 2021 International Krappy Kamera: Deadline 4/8/21

Our philosophy at Soho Photo Gallery is that in the hands of any artist great photographs can be made with basic equipment.  To explore this talent, we are searching for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses. Examples of some Krappy Kameras are the Holga, Diana, Ansco, and pinhole cameras. You can also create your own Krappy Kamera by using your non-Krappy Kamera (e.g. 4x5, SRL, DSLR) and exchanging the lens with a Krappy lens (e.g.pinhole body cap or Holga-type lens).Cell phones, disposables and point and shoot cameras are ineligible. Remember, just because a camera is old and moldy doesn't make it Krappy. The lens is the determining factor.

Foto Forum Santa Fe is proud to announce an open call for our First Annual Foto Forum Santa Fe Photography Award, an international competition open to emerging and established artists. The Award is centered around a solo exhibition in the Foto Forum Santa Fe gallery. We suggest you send in twelve photographs that you feel could be part of a cohesive exhibition, rather than trying to show the broad range of different work you make. We are not accepting video submissions at this time, but video can be part of the exhibition. You can submit video stills and describe the video in your Artist Statement. The selected winner will work with Sage Paisner to curate the final exhibition, which may include works not submitted with your application. The Artist Statement is a perfect place to explain how the twelve photographs relate to each other and provide additional information about the body of work and your artistic practice.

 

The selected photographer receives a $1,000 cash prize and two month solo exhibition at our downtown Santa Fe gallery, located a short walk from the art hub surrounding SITE Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Railyard. Second place receives $500 cash prize, 3 prints in our gallery art print rack, and a two month featured exhibition on our website.

Emergency Grants – Adolph & Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant: ONGOING

This program has no deadlines

The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant program is intended to provide interim financial assistance to qualified painters, printmakers, and sculptors whose needs are the result of an unforeseen, catastrophic incident, and who lack the resources to meet that situation. Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need. 

The maximum amount of this grant is $15,000; an award of $5,000 is typical.

To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking. Each application will be reviewed by the Directors, who will exercise their discretion in considering it, and will determine the amount of each award. Applicants should note there is a set amount appropriated for these grants each fiscal year; once this budgetary limit has been reached, the Foundation will not be able to judge any additional requests on their merits.

This program has no deadlines.

Anyone is eligible for a grant — individuals, groups, and organizations alike. If you can fill out the application form, you can apply. Every chapter interprets “awesome” for itself. As such, awesome projects include initiatives in a wide range of areas including arts, technology, community development, and more.
