Photofusion SALON/13: Call for Submissions

We are pleased to announce that we are now taking submissions for this year’s Members’ exhibition, Photofusion SALON/13. Showcasing the talent and artistic quality produced by photographers across a broad range of disciplines, submitting to the SALON show is free and exclusive to Photofusion Members.

Last year’s SALON/12 saw over 160 images installed in the gallery, with an additional selection on an AV show reel. From these images, four photographers – Carlotta Cardana, Ariadne Radi Cor, Tim Mitchell and Dafna Talmor – were selected to exhibit more of their work at the Photofusion SELECT/13 group show that followed in the Spring.

This year we will be continuing with the same format – selecting four photographers from SALON/13 – and awarding each a bursary to develop their work. With mentoring and assistance from Photofusion staff, these four photographers will then go on to exhibit their work at the Photofusion SELECT/14 exhibition held next Spring.

Members’ Evening

Tips on approaching / submitting to galleries
Thursday 19 September, 19.00 onwards
Free & exclusive to Photofusion Members

To accompany the call for submissions to Photofusion SALON/13, members of the Photofusion Gallery Committee, Adrian and Jenna, will be sharing their Top Tips and knowledge on submitting work to galleries.

With the number of galleries showing new and emerging artists’ work slowly decreasing due to funding difficulties, submitting your work for exhibition has never been more competitive.

The evening will consist of breaking down the different elements involved in the Photofusion submission process, and highlighting aspects of both good and bad proposals. In addition to this, people will be invited to bring along any proposals currently in development to discuss and receive feedback.

Although this is a free event, booking is required.
