eros 2014 call for submissions is now open
Our most popular exhibition at PhotoHaus is back, a juried exhibition of nude and erotic photography. This year we are planning to make it even bigger and better than ever before. This year we are introducing a video/ motion based category and a slideshow category. There will be prizes awarded to best in show in all three categories as well as honourable mentions awarded by the judges panel. We will also be announcing details about the opening reception in the coming weeks. We look forward to your submissions.
New to categories for eros 2014
• Video/motion based Installations
This year we are accepting video/motion based projects. Works will be displayed on large screens and projections throughout the studio and gallery exhibition. We are looking for works that are erotic, artistic, sensual, suggestive and sexy (not explicit). Ranging from video to animation to cinema graphs. For submission details please see below. The Video submissions will only be displayed at the opening reception.
• Slide show Category
This new category gives you the opportunity to submit 15-40 images that will be displayed on one of our large screens and projections throughout the facility. The difference to our ‘regular’ image submissions is two-fold. First, this format allows for artists to display a lager number of images that should be part of a consecutive image series (or body of work). Secondly, these images will not be printed but only displayed on our screens and projections. Slideshows will be curated and the total number displayed will be limited the same way the printed images are. The slideshow submissions will only be displayed at the opening reception.
Submission Deadline: 01.20.14
