Call for Photographic Artists – CityScape Community Art Space


As part of the Capture photography festival, this exhibition will celebrate photography and lens-based art, aiming to increase knowledge and appreciation of photography and lens-based art by emphasizing the cultural importance of photography in all of its forms. This regional festival ultimately aims to capture a specific moment in contemporary photographic discourse.

Nestled between the ocean and the mountains, the North Shore is more than just a spectacular backdrop to Vancouver. The forests, water and mountains are omnipresent; grand and imposing to some, comforting and reassuring to others, but very much a part of being here.

For this exhibition, You Are Here (working title), we are seeking photographic art work that captures the shared experience and stories of the North Shore region (Deep Cove to Horseshoe Bay). Selected images will connect people to, and express a meaningful interaction with place, evoking a sense of belonging. All images must be taken outdoors. We encourage interplay of nature and culture, evoking places with scenic or other sensory characteristics that differentiate them from surrounding areas and are identifiably ‘North Shore’.

Submission must include:

• up to 7 printed photographs or digital images on disk or USB of completed available artwork,
labeled with title, size (image AND finished size including frame where applicable)
• minimum image size is 8” x 10”
• no coloured matts, if image is matted, only white mats will be considered
• if framed, frame must be black or aluminum (unframed work is acceptable as long as it is ready to hang)
• minimal manipulation
• a list of work including thumbnail images of work, title, size, print medium, and price
• a CV, bio and brief artist statement that describes your artist process and/or methodology. We also encourage artists to identify the location where the image was captured and why it is special.
• a jury fee of $10 for members and $15 for non-members
• include your name, mailing address, phone number, website and email address
• a SASE if you would like your submission returned by post

Deadline for submission: Saturday, February 28, 2015 at 4pm

You do NOT have to be a resident of North Vancouver or a member of the Arts Council to submit or exhibit for this exhibition. Emailed submissions will not be accepted.
