A re-Post

I posted about this photo award some months ago, but, apparently, the website wasn't quite ready yet. The Poznan school is one of the finest, if not the finest, school for art in Poland. While we don't know so much about them in the US and Western Europe, many of the biggest stars of Polish art went to school there. An award from their new media department would be quite the plum. Check it out. Applications from outside of Poland are encouraged, or so the director has promised me. Go to:

  1. International Portfolio Review
    13 – 15 July 2012

    Submissions are still open until Friday 16th March 2012.

    PhotoIreland Festival’s portfolio review weekend 2012 will take place from 13-15 July 2012 in Dublin city, representing a unique opportunity for emerging artists worldwide to highlight new photographic projects and meet with international professionals.

    During the weekend of the portfolio reviews your work will be evaluated by international and Irish curators, gallery owners, festival directors, publishers and other photography professionals. You will also be invited to our opening networking event on 13 July, where the selected submissions for portfolio reviews will be presented in a series of projections.

    The reviews will offer insights, critique and advice on your work, providing you with invaluable feedback on your artistic development and expanding your professional network.

    The international portfolio reviewers are:
    • Walter Bergmoser – Curator & Photographer, Soul
    • Reinhard Braun – Camera Austria, Graz
    • Stefanie Braun – Photographers’ Gallery, London
    • Gösta Flemming – Journal, Stockholm
    • Nora Hauswirth – former CEO Sodapix, independent curator, Zurich
    • David Kronn – Private Collector, New York
    • Trish Lambe – Gallery of Photography, Dublin
    • Dewi Lewis – Publisher, London
    • Louise Mazmanian – FORMAT Festival, Derby
    • Andreas Müller-Pohle – European Photography, Berlin
    • Moritz Neumüller – PhotoIreland, Dublin/Barcelona
    • Markus Schaden –, Cologne

    Successful portfolio submissions should consist of a body of work or a project in progress. All submitted portfolios will initially be reviewed by a selected Jury who are looking for new, emerging talent and works by established artists using photography. The members of the selection jury are: Peggy Sue Amison (Sirius Arts Centre), Nora Hauswirth, Leszek Wolnik (, Tanya Kiang and Trish Lambe (Gallery of Photography), Richard Mosse, Moritz Neumüller and Ángel Luis González.

    The Jury will select 30 portfolios for review from all submitted work. Among those 30 selected portfolios one overall winner will be chosen by the reviewers on July 15th, who will get the opportunity to exhibit in a solo show during the 2013 festival.

    While there is an open theme for the portfolio submissions, we particularly welcome portfolios and photobooks around the festival theme of ‘Migrations: Diaspora and Cultural Identity’, to enjoy the opportunity to participate in the main exhibition of 2012.

    Submissions for portfolios are open from Wednesday, 4 January to Friday, 16 March 2012.
