PHOTOGRAPHERS AND FILMMAKERS ARE INVITED TO SUBMIT TO THE INAUGURAL EDITION OF FLOW PHOTO
FLOW PHOTO 2018: CALL FOR ENTRIES
Photographers, both amateur and professional, are invited to submit up to four photographs or films for the inaugural edition of Flow Photo. The national photography competition and exhibition, developed by Future Water Association and supported by the Canal & River Trust, aims to raise awareness and encourage debate about water and waterways in all aspects as seen through the photographer and film-maker’s lens.
Shortlisted works will be exhibited in a national tour throughout 2019 including the National Waterways Museums Ellesmere Port and Gloucester.
A residency prize of £6000 for a six-month residency will be awarded to one of the selected artists over the age of 18. The exhibition and awards will be chosen by an expert panel of selectors from the fields of Photography, Film and the water industry.
Flow Photo is open to both national photographers of all ages. All photographs and films entered must have been completed since 1 January 2018 and meet the competition’s criteria as stated in the Rules and Guidelines. Entry is by online submission through flowphoto.artopps.co.uk, and deadline for entry is by 5pm (BST) on 5 November 2018.
Tim Eastop, executive director of the Canal & River Trust Arts on the Waterways programme, says: “We’re really excited to be supporting this project with Future Water Association. The waterways throughout England and Wales are some of the most beautiful and iconic any where in the world. They are amazing spaces full of variety; one stretch buzzes with life, the next is silent and still, so that you are alone in a world of your own. They are places to escape, relax and slow down – it is this we want the competition to celebrate. And launching the project now will enable photographers and film-makers to capture how the character of the waterways change along with the seasons. I’d encourage anyone already using the canals and rivers as inspiration for their work to get involved with Flow Photo, and for those yet to discover the waterways, what better excuse to explore them for the first time.”
