CALL FOR ENTRIES: EMERGING PHOTOGRAPHER GRANT 2009, MAGNUM FOUNDATION

Posted: 19 Feb 2009 12:19 PM PST

The DEADLINE for submissions is MARCH 15, 2009. No exceptions.
http://www.burnmagazine.org/emerging-photographers-fund/

A $10,000 grant will be awarded in early 2009 to a worthy emerging photographer from the readership at BURN whose work is on the highest level. Funding would be designed to support continuation of this photographer’s personal project. This body of work may be of either journalistic mission or purely personal artistic imperatives…

The Emerging Photographer Fund grant was initiated by David Alan Harvey in 2008, and is awarded by the Magnum Foundation, a non-profit created by the the member photographers from Magnum Photos, Inc. A five person jury will be named to review your work. The 2008 Emerging Photographer Fund grant was awarded to Sean Gallagher for his essay on the environmental “desertification” of China.

For you to submit to the EPF, we need a uniform way of presenting your essay to the jurors. We have chosen PhotoShelter as our partner for this. Submissions not following the process below unfortunately cannot be considered for the EPF grant. You will be notified IF you are one of the finalists for this grant.

in order to PREPARE an essay for submission to the EPF:

* you must create a PhotoShelter account. a free PhotoShelter account is fine.
of course, if you already own a PhotoShelter account, that is fine.
* within PhotoShelter, create a separate gallery and upload your essay images to that new gallery.
* images must be at least 1600px on the longest side. file format doesn’t matter, as long as you can import it into PhotoShelter.

in order to SUBMIT the essay to the EPF:

* log in to PhotoShelter and create a lightbox for your essay.
* in the lightbox, add a title and a description of your project.
also, you can also provide captions for each image if you wish to do so.
* share the lightbox with epf [arobas] burnmagazine [point] org, making sure to check the “allow to invite other users” and “allow to comment, rate and move images” boxes.
* you’re done!

SUGGESTIONS:

* Keep your essay succinct. Jurors rarely like to see more than 25 pictures in an essay. 10 strong photographs on a powerful theme could be just fine.
* Remember you are trying to convince the jurors to let you continue with what you are doing. You do not have to be done. You just have to be good.
* Explain your project clearly. When jurors have to ask “where was this, when was this, or why is this’? , you opportunity is usually over. Simple , clean ,clear explanation and captions please.
* Finalists will be asked to create a blurb book (or blurb style ) for the final jury. Jurors will see what looks like a book of your work. A hard copy judging. So, start thinking of how your work would look in book form. We are using this method for judging to avoid having to charge an entry fee. Entry fees are charged on many grants just to pay for the staff to handle the entries. To avoid this, we will use the blurb style system. If you are a finalist you will pay for your own book , which will be returned to you of course. So, even if you do not receive this grant, you still have a book.This seems like a good solution.

Finalists will be announced by March 31.

ARTIST RESIDENCY: THE FIELDS PROJECT, OREGON

Posted: 23 Feb 2009 09:52 AM PST

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: MARCH 15, 2009

Come visit our beautiful Rock River Valley for nine days. We offer the opportunity to live with farm families throughout Ogle County who are eager to share with you their way of life and the knowledge of what is happening in agriculture in the 21st century.

In addition to plein air art and photography, we also offer a hands-on art/agriculture experience by recruiting artists who would like to create a field sculpture that is from 5 to 15 acres in size on a pallet of grassland. This work of art would be designed by the artist and then, with the help of a farmer and his tractor, mow the design onto the grassland. This process takes several days and can be seen and photographed from the air the last three days of your stay.

For plein air painters and photographers, you have the luxury to work as many hours as you choose with a myriad choice of subject matter; as one of the artists commented “everywhere I look there is a picture to paint”.

On the Saturday afternoon of your arrival, we have a reception to introduce you to your Farm Host Family. Sunday evening at the Lorado Taft Artist Colony site we tell the story of the heritage of Fine Arts in our community followed by a dinner overlooking the Rock River.

Monday morning we meet at the Oregon Library for breakfast in the art gallery established by Lorado Taft’s Eagles Nest Art Colony. Monday evening we gather at a local church where you can share a bit about yourself and your art with fellow artists and the community. The rest of the time is yours to paint/photograph, or to get together with other artists or your farm family. On Friday, air plane rides are offered to see the field sculptures. Saturday evening results in a food and fun-filled picnic for all participants, farm host families and the committee. Sunday brings the Fine Arts Festival with sculptors and other regional artists where you can show and sell your art.

In the past 10 years we have had 81 artists from 24 states and Canada spend this week with 41 farm families. Many of our farm families have had an artist each year and a number of artists have joined us more than once. One artist wrote after her week with us “Thank you for the terrific time in Ogle County. It was a life-changing week for me …I learned so much about people, farming, art and generosity. Thank you for that gift.” Kathy D. Sisters, OR. We would love to have you join us for this week of Art and Agriculture.

Open call for electronic media art: InterAccess Emerging
Artist Exhibition 2009
InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre is now accepting
submissions for the 9th Annual Emerging Artists Exhibition!
This exhibition showcases electronic and new media art works by up-andcoming
local and national future stars. We are accepting submissions from
post-secondary upper-year students or recent graduates in Ontario and
Canada. Curated by our 2009 curatorial intern, this exhibition provides the
most competitive emerging artists with professional experience and
publicity.
Each year, InterAccess invites a stellar emerging curator to take the reigns
and create this important exhibition, which has received rave press from the
Toronto Star, The National Post and The Globe and Mail. This year’s
selected curatorial intern is Jennifer Chan, an interdisciplinary artist and
specialist in Visual Culture & Communication at University of Toronto
Misssissauga/Sheridan College Art & Art History program. She is a

Visual Arts and was previously a research intern at V tape video resource
center. We proudly welcome Jennifer to our team and look forward to her
work on this exhibition.
We are looking for submissions of electronic new media work that explores
the aesthetics, determinance, (sub)cultures and history of digital media in
relation to other creative media such as sculpture, installation, video, sitespecific,
audio and performance art. Preference may be given towards
interactive and/or multimedia work that examines how the personal and
political is articulated through digital mediation. Web-based projects are
also welcome. However, due to the flexible parameters of an open call, the
emerging curator will develop an exhibition related to all the submissions
received.
Each selected artist will receive a CARFAC artist fee for participating.
Artwork will be exhibited at InterAccess beginning Friday July 10 until
Saturday August 8, 2009.
While we welcome proposals from outside of Ontario, please note that
InterAccess cannot provide artist travel fees or cover the shipping of artwork.
Participating artists will be responsible for timely transportation of their
artwork to the gallery a week before the opening on Thursday July 2, 2009.

InterAccess will provide technical assistance and basic audio/video
equipment.
All submissions must include:

TORONTO SCULPTURE GARDEN
115 King Street East, Toronto

CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Next Deadline: received by May 15, 2009

The Toronto Sculpture Garden has been a leader in Canada in the commissioning of contemporary sculpture since it opened in 1981. Located in an urban park in the downtown core, it serves as a testing ground for artists to explore public space and to address issues of urban context, materials and scale.

BACKGROUND:

The TSG is a non-collecting institution that is unique in its partnership between the City of Toronto, which owns and operates the site as a city park, and the Louis L. Odette Family, benefactors who created the non-profit L.L.O. Sculpture Garden Foundation which funds and administers the exhibitions. Exhibitions are selected by an Art Advisory Board working with the director, Rina Greer.

Newly commissioned work becomes property of the artist and may be offered for sale after the conclusion of the exhibition.

PROPOSALS:

The TSG’s Art Advisory Board meets three times a year to review specific proposals. Preference is given to new work that responds to the site; only in exceptional cases will existing work be considered. We are currently looking for exhibitions for May 2010 and beyond. Deadlines are each year on January 15, May 15 and September 15.

Proposals require:

* Drawing(s) showing dimensions and materials and the location of the work on the site.
* Brief statement of Theme
* Budget showing materials, installation/removal, transportation, and critical costs
* 10-20 slides, photographs or colour copies (no CD, DVD or video) of relevant work
* C.V.

« I believe in kindness »
Permanent Public Art Soundwork – June Callwood Park
City of Toronto – Call to Artists for Expression of Interest

Deadline: March 9

Dubbed « Canada’s Conscience », June Callwood (1924-2007) worked tirelessly to champion human rights and social justice, particularly for women and children. Over the course of her life she was involved in founding more than 50 humanitarian aid and civil liberty organizations, including PEN Canada, Nellie’s, Casey House and Digger House. June Callwood was awarded numerous honours in her lifetime, including Officer of the Order of Canada, and her words and actions have left an indelible impression on the social fabric of Toronto.

In 2005, when June Callwood was still alive, the City of Toronto dedicated a future park in her honour, located between Fleet Street and Fort York Boulevard in the emerging Fort York Neighbourhood. Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation have recently completed the competition process for the design of June Callwood Park. The winning concept, by Toronto-based Landscape Architects gh3, creates an urban forest from native tree species, and a series of openings whose form is derived from the sound pattern made from an excerpt from June Callwood’s last interview:

« I believe in kindness »

While not formally religious, June Callwood claimed that kindness was « a divinity in motion » and believed that babies are « full of God, if God is your kindness and your decency and your capacity for affection ». A few months before her death, June Callwood made it known that she wanted her park to be a place, where children’s capacities for kindness, decency and affection could be engaged in play, problem solving and collaboration.

To commemorate a woman known for her activism and words, the public art commission at June Callwood Park will be a permanent soundwork whose physical presence is integrated into the landscape design formed by a fragment of her spoken wisdom.

Toronto Cultural Services is seeking to commission a soundwork that will evoke the character and heart of June Callwood and engage the imaginations of children, young and old. The artwork project budget is $288,000, which includes all fabrication and installation costs and fees. Construction of the park will begin in early 2010, and is expected to be complete by 2011.

Toronto Cultural Services is inviting local, national, and international Artists or Artist Teams to submit:

* Resume(s);
* 6-8 audio-visual examples of recent, relevant work**; and
* Artist’s statement outlining experience and interest in the project.

**Please submit digital audio-visual samples on CD or DVD listing title, date, materials, duration and dimensions for each work. Please make sure files are compatible with Windows. Any images should be sent as jpegs, not larger than 5 MB. Include a stamped, self-addressed envelope for return of submission material, if desired.

Please note: Artists are NOT asked to submit proposals at this stage of the competition.

Submissions must be received Monday March 9th, 4 pm. Submissions should be sent to:

Public Art Office
Toronto Cultural Services
City Hall, Main Floor, East Tower
100 Queen Street West
Toronto ON M5H 2N2

Questions can be sent by email to: culture [arobas] toronto [point] ca . Please do not submit Expressions of Interest by email.

Toronto Cultural Services works with staff across City of Toronto divisions to identify exciting opportunities for commissioning public artworks in the City’s parks, streets and open spaces. For this project, Toronto Cultural Services is working with Parks, Forestry and Recreation. Parks, Forestry and Recreation’s website for this project can be found at toronto.ca/parks.

This project will be administered by Toronto Cultural Services’ Public Art Office. The artwork concept will be selected through a two-stage open competition, by an independent Selection Committee convened for this project, which will include practicing arts professionals as well as representatives from the local community.

A short list of 3-5 artists will be paid a fee to develop a project proposal based on a Terms of Reference document provided to the short-listed artists by Toronto Cultural Services. A public open house exhibition of the short-listed designs and final design selection will take place in summer 2009.
