Submissions are open for a PYLOT curated exhibition at Free Range!

May 25, 2018

The PYLOT Magazine Open Call is open to all photographers working with analogue, and gives you the chance to be part of an exciting exhibition in the heart of London at Free Range – and it’s completely free to enter!

PYLOT’s open call follows the theme of their most recent release, “The Autonomy Issue”. Photographers should submit bodies of work that are based on decisions that we make in life – are we guided by the signals and cues that surround us, or are we autonomous in our decision-making?

The top submissions will be chosen to take part in a group exhibition at Free Range between 21st-25th June, with over 5000 expected visitors over the course of the five days. Three photographers will be awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. The top three photographers will also have their portfolios reviewed by Marco Santucci, founder of Industry Art, one of London’s leading creative agencies.

Entries will have the chance to be selected for a group exhibition printed on Fujifilm paper, printed by theprintspace. Prizes from CineStill Fim, Stack, Parallax Photographic Coop, Industry Art, and PYLOT, are also up for grabs.

The successful submissions will be judged by Marco Santucci, Cheryl Newman, and Max Barnett and Patricia Villirillo from PYLOT Magazine.
