9th International Photography Festival

Description:

PHOTO IS:RAEL invites artists to submit proposals for the central exhibition of the 9th International Photography Festival in Tel Aviv, November 2021.

The International Photography Festival is Israel’s largest photography event and will be taking place in November 2021 for the ninth time. The festival has long since become an established and well-known cultural institution that welcomes thousands of visitors each year, as over 200 leading Israeli and international photographers exhibit their work over the course of two weeks. A jury of leading experts spanning a wide range of artistic genres will review the open call submissions and select the exhibiting artists. 20 artists will be invited to present their work in the festival’s central exhibition, and will also be featured on the website and in the festival catalog.

The upcoming festival theme is:

Meeting Point

A meeting point is a gathering place of acquaintances or strangers, different or alike, which may be either random or carefully planned. A meeting point is also a junction of ways, cultures and views from which a split or a merge are both possible. It is a physical or virtual space in which one can exchange ideas, fight or embrace.

After a year in which the daily meetings we’d taken for granted were canceled or transformed, the concept of a “Meeting Point” has become ever more significant. At the upcoming festival we will seek to explore this concept from a variety of angles and interpretations, using innovative methods of representation through photography and other forms of media. We are looking for all kinds of meeting points – between generations, technologies, man and nature, truth and fiction – and will attempt to examine that specific point or moment in which the natural becomes artificial, and dream becomes reality.

Prize details:

-20 artists will be invited to present their work in the festival’s central exhibition, and will also be featured on the website and in the festival catalog.
-50 additional artists will be invited to present their works in front of an audience of professionals in a special screening event during the festival.
