Call for Submissions. Gulf Photo Plus. Day & Night. May 1 – May 28, 2014. Selected finalists notified: June 4, 2014 Alserkal Avenue, D36, Al Quoz, Dubai UAE.
Photography Exhibition: Opening night June 11, 7pm onward. Exhibition runs from June 11 – July 26.
GPP is at the heart of the photography community in the Middle East region, and the DAY & NIGHT community exhibition aims to spotlight talented individuals that connect with GPP everyday. The call for submissions and resulting 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. Thanks to the generous support of HP, all of the exhibited images will be printed on an HP Z3200 Photo Printer and displayed in the GPP gallery space.
Chosen as the theme for the exhibition DAY & NIGHT celebrates all those who passionately pursue the art and science of photography around the clock. Submissions will be collected in two categories, ‘Day’ and ‘Night’, resulting in a variety of compelling images spanning a wide spectrum of genres including landscape, fine art, 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 of the region and beyond for gallery visitors to enjoy.
Those interested in participating are invited to submit up to two images, one per category. Both locally and internationally based photographers are welcome to submit. Last year’s GPP community exhibition was met with an overwhelmingly positive response. CMYK accepted more than 1000 submissions from which the top 65 photographs were exhibited in the GPP gallery space. We will once again be making a top selection from the DAY & NIGHT submissions, and the resulting collection will be exhibition in the GPP gallery space located in Alserkal Avenue.
