This year's PhotoVogue Global Open Call is an ode to the awe-inspiring beauty of our natural world and the myriad creatures that populate it.

Overview

In this spirit, PhotoVogue welcomes artists who express themselves through photography and video and embrace all aesthetics, ranging from the authenticity of realism and the creativity of fantasy to the narratives of documentary and the elegance of glam. Whether it's wildlife documentary photographs, environmentally conscious fashion shoots in the forest, or videos exploring symbiotic relationships within ecosystems, all genres are welcomed. They're looking for submissions that inspire change and foster hope, works that offer a positive perspective, celebrating our bond with nature and focusing on the beauty and resilience of the natural world, rather than on its mistreatment.

The theme The Tree of Life: A Love Letter to Nature,  will not only guide this year's Open Call but will also be the cornerstone of the next PhotoVogue Festival. This alignment will enable them to delve deeper into the theme through exhibitions, talks, and discussions, significantly contributing to the paradigm shift we aim to inspire. The festival will act as an amplifier, a vibrant platform to explore and provoke thoughts, encouraging a holistic approach to our interconnectedness with nature.

Practical Info

Open to everyone aged 18 and above, PhotoVogues encourages artists to apply even if they have participated in previous Open Calls, provided they bring forth a new project. Their diverse panel of Vogue staff and international visual experts will evaluate submissions, ensuring a broad and inclusive perspective. There are two categories. PhotoStory: consisting of 5 to 15 images (1 project maximum). If it is a multimedia project and includes videos as part of the same project, applicants must classify everything under the "Photo" category as one project. Video: acceptable file formats include mp4 or mov. The video should have a minimum resolution of 1920px on the long side and a maximum duration of 60 seconds.

Endorsed by all 27 editions of Vogue worldwide, this Open Call offers artists the chance to be featured at the 2024 PhotoVogue Festival in Milan, and potentially in an issue of Vogue. The two artists who submit the most compelling work will also receive a $5,000 grant each (TBC), supporting their artistic growth. Additionally, participants have the opportunity for 1 on 1 virtual sessions with industry experts, enhancing the global and diverse nature of this endeavor.
