Announcement: P1xels' Third Annual Global iPhonic Art Exposition: THE THIRD WAVE, is now open for submissions
Press Release: Three years ago P1xels—The Art of the iPhone changed the face of the iPhone photography movement by announcing the first ever juried gallery show of what we now call iPhonic Art.
The worldwide movement continues to explode and P1xels remains the only curated site for the global community. P1xels has garnered press and exposure for artists around the world in the intervening years and has produced many well-received exhibitions during that time, as well.
So we are happy to announce the third annual P1xels' Global iPhonic Art Exposition: THE THIRD WAVE, is now open for submissions.
Entry Fee: $30.00 for up to eight images. There is a discount for early submissions. The discount will apply until Wednesday, October 17 at midnight Pacific Standard Time. Go to Call For Submissons page for details.
This show will run in three cities, Berkeley, New York, and Bremen, Germany, for a combined running time of four-and-a-half months.
- Berkeley, California ~ The Garden Gate Creativity Center (formerly the Giorgi Gallery and birthplace of the iPhonic art movement), 2911 Claremont Avenue, November 29, 2012 – January 30, 2013. Opening night celebration December 1, 2012, 6-10 pm.
- New York City ~ Soho Gallery For Digital Art, the Big Apple’s hottest hotspot for all things digital, 138 Sullivan Street, New York City. This show will be in conjunction with the hugely successful 1197 Conference, http://1197.is/, of which P1xels—The Art of the iPhone is a sponsor and participant this year. Many more details to follow about this.
- Bremen, Germany ~ OutOfMyMind Gallery, Goethestraße 36, December 21, 2012 – February 22, 2013.
Confirmed judges for submissions jury:
- Baron Wolman, Rolling Stone Magazine’s first photographer and author of many books, including his very recent The Rolling Stone Years, now in its third printing.
- Glyn Evans, Publisher of iPhoneography.com, the first and very well-loved and respected iPhoneography website.
- Daniel Marcolina, artist and author of iPhone Obsessed, and publisher of the amazing new interactive iBook/eBook AppAlchemy.
Other judges to be announced shortly.
All entrants will have at least one image displayed in both Berkeley and New York City galleries on large flat-screen monitors in rotating curated sequences. In Berkeley, these digitally displayed images will be available as an rss feed and will be tweeted as being part of the show. A great way for artists to build their CVs. Some artists may have several images included in feeds.
We will be exhibiting about fifty-five archival prints in Berkeley, varying in size from 8″x10″ up to 28″x38″ for two months, along with the digital feed of as yet an indeterminate number. All images for the New York show will run on a total of sixteen large format screens, along with featured artist galleries, and perhaps video. At least thirty archival prints will be shipped to Bremen (on 13″x19″ or 17″x22″ archival paper) for the two-month run there.
Artists will NOT be charged for larger print costs, mounting, and hanging, as these are done at the discretion of the P1xels jury.
Prizes: Inasmuch we believe that art is not a contest and that inclusion of work in this very selective show will be a measure of great esteem, we are aware that most people love this aspect of exhibitions. So, we will have one Grand Prize winner, nine honorable mentions, and twenty runner-ups. These are the thirty images that will go to Bremen, Germany (we may send other images as well), but these thirty will be sure to go. All thirty artists will receive a free pdf version of the THE THIRD WAVE edition of P1XELS Magazine. The Grand Prize Winner and nine Honorable Mention Artists will have galleries and video interviews in the interactive iBook/eBook extended version of the issue, and will receive copies. There will be a Grand Prize, as well, but we have no idea what it is going to be yet. Of course the Grand Prize winning image will be on the covers of the print and interactive versions of the exhibition book. Every artist who gets a printed image in show will have the option of putting images on our fine art print site for signed editions, http://P1xels.com, if they so desire.
As always, all photos must be shot with and processed using an Apple iPhone. No computer-based processing allowed. Any model of the iPhone may be used. Any image found to be taken with another device or processed on a desktop or laptop computer will result in entrant being disqualified and forfeiture of entry fee. Note: photos taken with and apped on any iOS device are also eligible for submission (please specify if iPad, for purposes of classification).
Unsigned prints will be available for sale at the exhibits. Artist may set price or ask us to do so. Sale price will be split between the artist 30%, the gallery 40%, and P1xels 30%. In the event that more than one print is sold of an image, a reasonable printing charge will be deducted from price of print, then split between artist, gallery, P1xels.
Unsold prints will be returned to artists, mailing costs to be covered by artists.
Please note: As far as copyright goes, copyright always belongs to the artist.
