Tied to Light zine open call

Tied to Light Collective has announced its first zine open call.

The collective is looking for artists exploring the endless possibilities of the photographic medium through experimental and boundary pushing approaches to making and thinking.

Selected artists will have the opportunity to have their work in print.

The zine will celebrate the work of artists around the world that are increasingly unpicking the vastness and fluidity of the medium, using its all encompassing nature to break boundaries between mediums and question the capabilities of photography.

The open call is free to enter. Selected artists will be asked for a suggested donation of £10 towards production of the zine.

All selected artists will receive a free copy.

Funds raised from zine sales will go directly into the running of the collective and its future projects.

  • 1-8 images per submission

  • Website and social media links
  • Collate images and text onto one pdf (max. 5MB), titled ‘NameSurname.pdf’
