    Default Open Call Submission: Inaugural Singapore International Photography Festival

    About Singapore International Photography Festival

    Scheduled to take place from 8 to 31 October 2008, the Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF) is the first event of its kind in Southeast Asia. This biennial festival strives to provide a platform for local and Southeast Asian artists to showcase their works alongside their international peers in various venues across Singapore. Central to the SIPF is a series of short workshops and lectures facilitated by curators and senior photographers for 30 selected Southeast Asian photographers under the age of 35. Along with the official exhibitions and programme, there is SIPF Fringe which counts on participation of arts galleries, arts spaces and education institutions to promote the appreciation of photography across Singapore.

    The SIPF committee is made up of volunteers and relies on the good will and support from various institutions, corporate organisation and the public to make this festival a reality.

    About Exhibition Proposals

    There is no theme to the festival. Photography must be used in the process of creating the work. All genres of photography are accepted.

    International artists especially those working in underrepresented and misrepresented regions are welcomed to submit their works. Submissions by Southeast Asian artists will be given priority. There is no age limit for this section.

    The SIPF is especially keen to showcase independent, long-term or ongoing projects. The festival is not interested in single images. It will also be difficult, though not impossible, to showcase works completed more than five years ago.

    Submitted works may be presented in prints, self-made books, video, or any other format as suggested by the artist. Due to budgetary concerns, the SIPF prefers print-based works. The festival is unable to showcase handmade prints unless the selected artist is willing to pay for the courier fee. Epson (Singapore Pte Ltd) is the official printer for SIPF.

    About Portfolio Review/Workshops/Lectures
    The portfolio review/workshops are only open to 30 selected artists holding Southeast Asian passports. Southeast Asian countries include Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Indonesia, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, the Philippines, Brunei and East Timor. Official SIPF lectures are open to additional 30 participants on top the 30 selected artists.

    As this is a non profit event run by volunteers, each Singaporean artist selected for the portfolio review/workshops/lectures will be required to pay a subsidised amount of S$100 to help cover the cost of workshop and materials.

    Festival Grant Assistance: Each artist from the rest of the Southeast Asian countries selected for the portfolio review/workshops/lectures is qualified to apply for a grant to partially fund her or his trip to the festival. The grant will help to cover the costs of the workshops, materials and part of their travel expenses on a reimbursement basis.

    Legal issues
    All artists retain the creator's right to the submitted works. If a project is selected, the artist is obliged to temporarily transfer her or his right of the images to the SIPF, so that (1) the images can be produced for the exhibition, (2) used in the festival's publicity drive and (3) shown in subsequent tours. The artist will be credited each and every time her or his work is used.

    sorry but i dont quite understand the part about the workshop/portfolio review. are they separate entities? so you can only get selected for either the workshop or portfolio review. and what exactly does the portfolio review involve? discussion and critique of the images submitted?
    find me on |flickr|?

    Hi pyrique,

    The workshop and the portfolio review is 2 separate entities but the application procedure is similar. You can be selected for both the workshop AND the portfolio review.

    For the portfolio review, we will be bringing in 15 distinguished professionals from various photography industries: fashion, journalism, product, fine art to name a few. Out of which you will pick 10 that you feel that your portfolio relates to the most so that you can have the maximum benefit from the session. Participants will bring a body of work or their portfolio for critique and discussion by the reviewers.

    We look forward to seeing you at the festival!
