Entry Fee: 8-35 EUR



People and other living creatures have an organic life cycle, and parts of our physical environment also have their cyclic coming into being and decay. The phases that constitute these cycles are unique and characteristic in their development and visual appearance. People, animals, plants, objects and scenes mature and grow old in very different manners. Quite often the penultimate stage of physical existence is characterized by gradual fading, marked by various signs of the approaching end. The photographic interpretations of fading away may range from cold, observing documentation to intimate, subjective involvement.

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Fading. We welcome submissions from all photographers who are interested in this most intriguing topic, and who would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed, and it is independent of generic or stylistic constraints. We are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.


The exhibition Fading will also feature a collaborative project by Neue Bühne Budapest and PH21 Gallery. Danielle Dutombé of Neue Bühne and photographer Birte Frey will present a “phototheatre” piece as part of the exhibition. Instead of creating a stand-alone photograph their work will engage visitors to participate in a physical action and turn the interpretation process into a two-way performance between the art piece and the viewer.

Contest Prize & TERMS

PRIZE DETAILS: One juror’s choice and up to three honourable mentions will be selected and announced. (Occasionally we also give out an associate's choice award.)

The webpage and the print catalogue of the exhibition will include a juror’s review; it provides a detailed review of the juror’s choice, shorter evaluations of the honourable mentions, and a one-sentence highlight of some of the other photographs included in the exhibition.
