Photo Fringe 2020: OPEN20
Territory: Worldwide
Theme: OPEN20
Eligibility: Emerging and mid-career photographic artists
Entry Fees: 11 Euros
Prize: Exhibition
Photo Fringe 2020 will be a call to action, inviting artists and audiences to take photos and to make a difference. To make art and communicate our place in the world through it. To use photography to make change. To develop new ways of seeing together.

At this critical moment of historical change the festival asks: "How can photography help us to see the world afresh and help us to envision a fairer, safer, greener world? How can it help us to understand global change? How can your photography make a difference?"

The Photo Fringe 2020 festival will run from 3 to 31 October 2020.

About the OPEN20 SOLO award

The OPEN20 SOLO award is a solo exhibition opportunity for an early-career photographer.

Photo Fringe invites emerging artists from all over the world to participate and respond to the question: "How can photography make a difference?".

For this year's award we're asking for work to be shown in an online exhibition.

One artist will be selected by our jury as the festival's keynote exhibition - presented on our new Photo Fringe 2020 website, alongside work from 20 shortlisted artists.

One artist will be awarded:
the keynote solo exhibition for Photo Fringe 2020
an artist's fee of £750 plus production costs of up to £500
mentoring from Professor Steve Macleod, (Director, Metro), Sam Mercer (Digital Producer, The Photographers' Gallery) and Kay Watson (Digital Curator, Serpentine Galleries)

Winners of Narratives Announced
The photograph's power as a narrative tool is derived from the impression that what is captured within the frame is an accurate representation of what actually occurred at a specific moment in time. As complete or comprehensive as any narrative may appear to be, it will always be subject to a process of including some elements and excluding others. These inclusions and exclusion are a crucial part of what photographic storytelling is all about - What is being presented within the frame to the viewer - and what is being left out or left to the viewer's imagination.
