Open to Interpretation Competition: Intimate Landscape

The Juried Book Competition of Photography, Poetry and Prose – Open to Interpretation has another international open call for entries. This time the call is themed: Intimate Landscape.

Landscapes conjure images of vast, sweeping scenes, but the details captured by a photograph can turn a seemingly impersonal setting into an intimate story. It’s up to the artist to define what constitutes an intimate landscape, be it representational, non-representational, urban, suburban or rural.

Each volume of Open to Interpretation represents a unique collaboration between photographers and writers.


Submit images related to the call theme, which is: Intimate Landscape.

All images created will be accepted for consideration, including but not limited to film, digital, alternative process, mixed media, digital manipulations, old world processes, pinhole, solar etchings, iPhone, etc.

Either color or black & white is acceptable.

It is also possible to enter with Poetry & Prose submissions.
