Fictional Narrative

Fictional Narrative
Juror: Emma Powell
Deadline: Monday, October 15, 2018
Exhibition prints due November 21, 2018
Gallery exhibition December 12, 2019 - January 12, 2019
Photographic fictional narratives read like fairytales rather than memoirs. They leave clues to their story rather than solve mysteries. At times they are constructed images; at other times, the images are found in nature. At their best, fictional narratives create curiosity while recounting intimate or imagined stories - with unique endings for each viewer. 

Send us your photographs that tell a story - staged or captured, dreamt or found, whether individual images or a cohesive set of images.
We are very pleased that Emma Powell will be jurying and curating this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 35 for our Online Gallery Annex. The recipients of the Juror's Award and the Director's Award will each be entitled to a personal portfolio review by Ms. Powell.
