LGBT+ submissions wanted for Photoworks Annual journal

Besi Besemar June 29, 2017

Photoworks call for LGBT+ submissions from photographers for their annual journal.

Photoworks Editors are currently looking for fully resolved projects responding to photography’s role within LGBT+ communities and invite UK and international artists at any stage of their career to submit suitable new or previously unpublished work.

The international photography and visual culture journal, Photoworks Annual, is known for showcasing emerging talents alongside established names and for pairing writing from the forefront of photographic thinking with expertise from beyond the conventional art world.

Each themed issue includes a presentation of four projects chosen from open call, alongside an essay about the selected works, commissioned from a high-profile writer.

Looking at contributions from both the UK and beyond, Photoworks Annual Issue 24, to be published in November 2017, will chart contemporary and historical contributions to the debate, present first-hand accounts from practitioners, explore representations of communities with overlapping identities, look at the formation of groups that exist only online and present research of photography projects aiding LGBT+ suicide prevention.

Asking ‘what is the relationship between photography and these communities?’ and ‘why is this important now?’ the aim is to produce an informed and engaging publication, maintaining interest and relevance for years to come.
