GPP is at the heart of the photography community in the Middle East region and the CMYK community exhibition, now open for submissions, aims to spotlight talented individuals that connect with GPP everyday. The CMYK exhibition offers an opportunity for GPP to reach out to the local and international community of photography enthusiasts, encouraging them to submit work for the chance to be featured in the next GPP exhibition.
Chosen as the theme for the exhibition CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black [Key]) comes from the CMYK colour model used in the printing process, and also denotes the four categories of the show. With over 800 submissions, this open call has resulted in a variety of powerful images spanning a wide spectrum of genres including landscape, macro, portraiture and abstract work. The exhibition will offer a platform for photographers to share their work with the community, while exhibiting inspiring and unique images from the region and beyond for gallery visitors to enjoy.
Those interested in participating were invited to submit images to one or more colour categories, with a limit of one image per category. Both local and internationally based photographers were encouraged to submit. From the submissions, a collection of images from each category will be selected for the CMYK exhibition. Opening night May 1, 2013 from 7 pm will be open to the public, with the exhibition running throughout the month of May.
