Open Society Institute Seeks Entries for Moving Walls 18 Documentary Photography Exhibition

The Open Society Institute invites photographers to submit a body of work for consideration by its Moving Walls 18 group exhibition.

Moving Walls features in-depth explorations of human rights and social issues. Thematically linked to OSI’s mission, Moving Walls is exhibited at OSI’s offices in New York and Washington, D.C. The show will feature the work of seven photographers.

Any emerging or veteran photographer who has completed a body of work related to a human rights or social justice issue may apply. The program will accept any genre of photography that is documentary in nature and is not staged or manipulated. Priority will be given to work that addresses issues and geographic regions of concern to OSI. Work in progress may be submitted as long as a substantial portion of the work has been completed.

OSI will support Moving Walls photographers’ budgets for printing, dry-mounting, and other production costs. In addition, selected photographers will receive a $2,000 royalty payment. To support the professional advancement of photographers who have not received much exposure, an additional travel grant will be provided to select Moving Walls photographers to attend the opening in New York and meet with local photo editors and relevant NGO staff. Recipients must apply for the travel grant after being chosen for inclusion in the Moving Walls exhibition.
