Bogotá International Photo Fair is pleased to announce the first edition of the Bogotá Photo Award 2020. For this edition, we are lucky to have OjoRojo Fábrica Visual as our main collaborators. We both share a deep interest in the dissemination and promotion of visual stories focusing on documentary photography.
This year’s topic is DES|CON|NEXO. We felt inspired by all connection and disconnection experiences we witnessed due to social distancing adopted to fight the spread of Covid-19. As we know, connection and disconnection experiences between intimacy/public, individual/social, physical/virtual, among others, suffered profound transformations.
We desire to use these tensions, paradoxes, and many other particular quarantine situations, to invite talented professionals, amateurs, and emerging artists to submit their observations of this “chaos” from a personal, collective, or community perspective.
The prizes for this first edition of the Bogotá Photo Award 2020 will include:
– $1,000 USD
– Exhibition in our first Bogotá International Photo Fair.
– Second and third place: collective exhibition in our first Bogotá International Photo Fair.
And the 10 most outstanding works will be recognized through a virtual exhibition on our website.
The deliberation will be in charge of the juries: Carolina Ponce de León, Curator and independent art critic, member of OjoRojo Fábrica Visual
Stephen Ferry, Documentary Photographer, member of OjoRojo Fábrica Visual Santiago Rueda, Independent Curator and author of outstanding research in photography.
Bogotá International Photo Fair is now accepting submissions until October 31, 2020, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org Results will be announced on November 30 on Instagram.
