Their new call for 2019 hopes to attract submissions that show a diverse interpretation of this years ‘IN REPEAT’ theme. The featured photographers already lead the way in showing very different approaches and concepts. Be inspired and make use of the opportunity to be part of a unique community.

IN REPEAT is inspired by dealings with the past or engaging with timely matters. This could be relating to finding patterns in society that may have been experienced by previous generations in similar ways. Think of working with memories by looking back into ones personal life. It could as well be the work with found imagery or dealings with historic content. The opportunities are manifold and we will be interested in seeing your work.
