 Call for Exhibition Submissions

– applications have now CLOSED for artist submissions

 

Head On Photo Festival asks all photo artists interested in being part of the 2013 Head On Photo Festival to email your expression of interest to [email protected]

Head On requires all photo artists, irrepective of whether you have a venue confirmed already or not, to utilise this submissions system. All submissions will be viewed by a selection committee who will choose the artist/exhibitions to be included in the 2013 Head On Photo Festival. Head On are open to accept all photo artists, emerging, established and everything in between.

Head On also provides a match-making service – establishing connections between venues and artists looking for each other in 2013. Already got a venue? Thats ok, you can submit too.

In 2013, there will be three levels of exhibitions – Primary (which are a number of artists selected by Head On for a partially subsidised exhibition), Featured and Associated. Head On will determine whether your exhibition will be promoted as a Primary, Featured or Associated event. The costs of a Featured or Associated event are the responsibility of the venue or the artist.

The decision on which category your exhibition falls into, will be based on the type of venue you are exhibiting within (museum/cafe) and the level (international/local/acclaimed/emerging) of your exhibition work. Primary, Featured and Associated exhibitions receive different amounts of benefits and promotion during the festival.

There is no payment required at this stage. However, if Head On identifies you as a festival artist/exhibition, you will be contacted to make payment on the required amount relevant for the ‘level’ of your exhibition.
