The Long and the Short of It ? 2012
Submissions are now open for Melbourne’s second open?air photo journalism essay exhibition.
All artists, photographers, photojournalists, students and amateur photographers are encouraged to submit a photo essay, of up to 10 images, that tell a story. 12 photo essays will be selected for screening at The Big Screen and The Atrium, Federation Square, Melbourne
The Long and the Short of It will screen the successful photo essays over a 3?week period at Federation Square, which is situated alongside the Yarra River in the center of Melbourne’s busy art scene.
The aim of the exhibition is to promote the importance of photojournalism as an art medium, showcase a diverse range of photo essays and share stories, not only from around the corner but from around the world. After all, everyone has a story to tell.
There is no restriction on subject matter but each essay cannot contain more than 10 images.
Each work screened will be accompanied by a brief artist statement and details of where the photo essay was shot.
This is a unique opportunity for photographers to display a series of photographs in its entirety. It also gives both photographers and the public the opportunity to engage with images from around the world and close to home, in a public forum.
The first exhibition held in 2011, received submissions from more than 20 countries. It included work from the general public, up and coming photographers and Walkley Award winning photojournalists.
All 2012 entries will be judged by distinguished members of the Arts, Photography and Journalism communities.
