As of August 1st: Hijacked 3 Oz / UK Submissions Open
As of August 1st, 2010, the submissions will be officially open for the scheduled publication Hijacked 3 - Australia / United Kingdom. Photographic artists / photographers may submit 12 - 18 images / fotos from a series / body of work as lo resolution jpegs. ie. Screen resolution files are fine. These photographs, may be zipped or compressed and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Optional: You may wish to include an artist statement / description of the photographic series and a short biography and/or cv. The project Hijacked Volume 3 - Australia / United Kingdom is an open submission process and is open to all people of these countries. The submission of work does not guarantee inclusion in the final publication, nor does shortlisted artists, guarantee inclusion in the final published book.
No explanations or feedback will be forthcoming or deemed necessary from the publisher and editorial staff if an artist or photographer is not chosen for the publication and/or from the Hijacked 3 shortlisted group.
FAQS: Like 'is there a theme/s or special interest to Hijacked 3' ?? The short answer is no. But obviously there are themes and concepts to the works, but the curatorial conceptual parameters are not premeditated, they will be apparent retrospectively and in hindsight, determined through the editorial process, by the editors, and illustrated in the final publication through specific selections, sequences, layout, design and juxtapositions of photographic artwork.
It is preferred the submitted photographs are new, exclusive and previously unpublished, but it is not a determining criteria. We are trying to support a survey of new, emerging, under represented artworks aligned with some established photographers. It is preferable that you are from Australia or the United Kingdom, if you are considering submitting work to this project.
Photographic artists will be shortlisted and published on the Big City Press blog on a weekly basis, as from August 1st, 2010 for one year.
Editors Mark McPherson (Australia) & Louise Clements (United Kingdom) will collaborate to select the final group of photographic artists for the book.
This project is supported by Rhubarb Rhubarb, Birmingham & Quad Format Festival, Derby.
