The 4th international photography festival Organ Vida announces its juried open call for documentary photography
Submissions are accepted from March 5th till May 1st , 2012.
The 4th international photography festival Organ Vida will be held at a new location this year – in the cinema 'Europa' in the centre of Zagreb, while the exhibition will be held in an art gallery. The festival will last for two days, 15th and 16th of June, 2012.
Considering the broad range of ways in which photography can be used as a tool for documenting social, political and daily life events as well as human behavior, this year's international photography festival Organ Vida looks forward to presenting a wide selection of works from the field of documentary photography understood in its broadest sense.
The open call will run from March 5th till May 1st 2012. The list of works selected for the exhibition will be published May 20th at the festival website.
In order to be eligible for this open call, the documentary photography series must consist of a minimum of three (3) and a maximum of twenty (20) photographs. The series must be accompanied by a short description. All photographers over 18, from Croatia and abroad, are welcome to apply.
The selected works will be displayed at a gallery space during the festival The finalists and the award winners will be selected by an international jury of 5 professional photographers. The names of the members of the jury will be published soon at the festival website.
You can find full list of submission rules HERE.
The winner of the first prize will receive an award and an acknowledgement of the Organ Vida festival.
Beside the new locations (cinema Europa and an art gallery), the Organ Vida festival has a new visual identity as well – thanks to the multidisciplinary creative studio Stožer. The new visual identity is designed to separate the Organ Vida association from the international photography festival of the same name, and thus facilitate the communication and promotion of the festival (which is held annually in Zagreb since 2009).

'Organ Vida' is an international photography festival held annually in Zagreb. The festival is currently in its 5th year of running.
The objective of this festival is to promote the contemporary Croatian and foreign trends in photography, to strengthen the photography scene in Croatia, and to present quality works to a wide audience. Through its continuous development, this festival aims to become the leading international photography festival (especially open to the young photographers) in the region.
The festival programme comprises of various types of events - lectures, creative workshops, presentations of different photographers and their projects, exhibitions, and music gigs.
Each edition of the festival is centered around a specific theme within the field of documentary photography. The works for the exhibition need to be submitted via our online application form. This year, the jury will select 10 of the best documentary projects to be displayed at a large group exhibition during the festival. After the closing, the exhibition will tour several cities in Croatia and abroad.
Along with the exhibition and workshops, what we offer at our festival is also the opportunity to have fun, meet new creative friends (photographers as well as other artists), exchange advice and experiences, and expand your professional network. It is our belief that these types of live events significantly contribute to the development and strengthening of the photographic scene, because the photographers are given a chance to show their work to a wide audience, explain and discuss them, and receive comments and feedback right away.
We are happy to invite you to visit our next festival and become a part of our Organ Vida community! And in case you see yourself as a potential sponsor or supporter of the festival, please contact us with your ideas for co-operation.
