OPEN CALL—8th Singapore International Photography Festival 2022

SIPF is back for its 8th edition in 2022.
Deadline: 14 March 2022, 23:59 GMT+8


The open call runs independently of the festival theme as we hope to uncover a wide spectrum of works, both completed and ongoing. Ultimately, SIPF seeks diverse proposals from the international community to present in Singapore. From the open call submissions, the esteemed jury members will select 20 portfolios to present across various art spaces in Singapore. There will also be three awards from the open call: Best Portfolio, Best Published Photobook and the Publishing Prize.
