DESCRIPTION

Skin, 5th edition of Visible White Photo Prize 2016, is an open call for photographic works open to all photographers, artists and creatives, regardless of age, sex, experience, occupation or geographic location.

 

Tactile and visual, skin is a thin and sensitive layer of protection which is the physical and cultural diaphragm between the inside of the body and the outside world. The theme can be approached from different perspectives. Look at skin to reflect on issues of identity, gender, class, ethnicity, race, ecology, politics, and technology, by addressing desire, trauma, ego, torture, submission, multi-sensoriality, self-injury, tattoos, the different contours of sexuality, nanotechnology, implants, disease, contamination and contagion.

 

Total of 5,000 € Prizes:

2,500 € for the Best Project

1,500 € for the Runner-up Project

1,000 € for the Best Single Work

 

Deadline is 29 February 2016.
