Deadline for submission: Friday 22 September

As part of the Enabling Works series of refurbishments recently completed at the Lagan Valley Hospital, the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust is keen to include art in these newly refurbished areas, particularly those used by patients and their families.

The Trust would like to offer an opportunity to artists working in any two-dimensional media to have their work included in a portfolio for review and selection for display at Lagan Valley Hospital. In particular the Trust would be delighted to see submissions from artists with disabilities, as they may be under-represented in the Trust art collection.

Interested artists should submit work on the following theme:
“Nature and Movement”.

Images should be restful and engaging and where possible consideration should be given to the two main colour schemes used in the refurbishment: turquoise and teal; magenta and plum. These colours were chosen for their calming effect on patients presenting with dementia and anxiety-related illnesses.

Once the artists’ work is chosen the Trust will purchase the unframed artwork at the identified price and frame it with appropriate materials for a healthcare environment. Images of insects and birds should be avoided where possible.

If you are interested in being considered for this opportunity please provide up to six originals (preferred) or good quality photographs of original works that are no larger than A2. The Trust is charged with making value for money decisions and has a limited budget. As a guide, the upper purchase limit for any single artwork is £300.

All images/ originals should be delivered to the Arts + Disability Forum Gallery, 109-113 Royal Avenue, Belfast, by Friday 22nd September 2017. Images found to be unsuitable on this occasion will then be available for collection at the Arts & Disability Forum from Monday 9th October. If you would not like these artworks to be considered for other locations/ projects within the Trust please make this clear on your submission, otherwise copies of your artworks may be retained for future reference.

Please include your name, address, contact telephone number and title and price of the artworks with your submission.

For further information please contact Paula on 028 90239450/paula@adf.ie
Submission Venue: Arts + Disability Forum, 109-113 Royal Avenue, Belfast BT1 1FF

Application deadline: 14 October

Gallery of Photography is pleased to announce a new collaboration with Junior Magazine, to bring you an exciting 6 month exhibition and project space to celebrate the opening of the Osman Suite (named after our Gallery founder, John Osman) in their recently extended bookshop.

This collaboration aims to showcase the best in emerging Irish photography. In light of this, Junior Magazine and Gallery of Photography are creating a free open call for work that centres on the notion of ‘Irish-ness’. They want to see new, challenging and most importantly, personal perspectives on the place we call home – exploring what it means to live in Ireland.

The aim of this collaboration is to create a platform for the Ireland’s emerging photographers and sell limited edition photographic prints. All photographs selected for exhibition in the Osman Suite will be printed and framed in the Gallery of Photography’s Artist Digital Suite at no cost to the artist.

Junior Magazine will also be programming a series of meet-ups and community-building workshops in the Gallery of Photography where photographers will get a chance to share their work, engage with a wider photographic community and learn from the experience of others. These events will be an invaluable opportunity for photographers to develop their practice and foster relationships with their peers.

Submission Guidelines
Please submit up to five images, ideally from a specific project, along with up to 250 words describing your work. Images must be submitted as low-res JPEGS (1000px on the long side, sRGB, 72dpi). While we are primarily selecting work for this exhibition, submissions may also be considered for future JUNIOR publications.

Email address for submission is juniorphotomagazine@gmail.com
