Open Walls Arles

 Calling emerging and established photographers to submit work responding to the theme: Growth

British Journal of Photography in collaboration with Galerie Huit Arles have announced the second edition of OpenWalls Arles, an award aimed at creating opportunities for emerging and established photographers. We are searching for up to 52 photographers to be exhibited as part of a group show at Galerie Huit Arles alongside Les Rencontres d’Arles 2020.

 

For the first time, the award is split into two categories. In the Series category, photographers are invited to enter a body of work, consisting of up to 10 images. Two winners will be chosen from this category and their series will be exhibited alongside the 50 winning images that are selected from the Single Image category. The group show at Galerie Huit Arles will run throughout July 2020.

 

We are calling photographers to respond to the theme: Growth. We will award 50 winning images, and two bodies of work that convey a sense of change or transition; whether this be personal growth, or the changes we witness around us.
