7th International Photography Annual | $2,000 in Cash Awards! (Deadline Extended!)

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Art call for award winning publication with cash awards.

INPHA is open to a broad range of lens-based and photographic submissions. The publication will include 'photographers' and 'photography' but is also open to anyone who is working creatively in a visual art (or design) field and has work that incorporates the lens or photographic process in some significant way, including manipulated and mixed processes.

The goal of Manifest's annual international publication of contemporary photography is to support the recognition, documentation, and publication of current, excellent, and relevant photographic art on an ongoing annual basis. In 2012, the International Photography Annual (INPHA) became the 3rd in a suite of annual Manifest books that charts contemporary art around the world. In early 2013 the INPHA 1 received a bronze medal award in the 2013 IPPY Book Awards in New York City (Photography category) from the Independent Publisher Association. The publication joined the International Painting Annual and award winning International Drawing Annual as a major new product of Manifest Press. This project is part of a further expression of Manifest's unique process for assembling diverse and compelling multi-national projects, as well as its commitment to a wide variety of methods for creative visual expression.

The International Photography Annual is open to all artists who submit original works of art  created within the time frame of 2015 - 2018. Students and Professionals in ALL disciplines are encouraged to submit. Manifest is eager to receive works in a wide range of applications with the qualification being solely that the submitted artwork is representative of high quality "photography or lens-based art."

Media (artwork)
This call is open to any media that is applicable to the practice of photography or lens-based work, including but by no means limited to traditional, digital/new media, photography, printmaking, mixed media, collage, etc. All are possibly valid.

Each artist/author who is selected for inclusion in the INPHA receives a complimentary copy of the publication. The books produced for Manifest's other ongoing Annuals have increased in page count and print quality each year, with recent publications reaching 200 pages in length. In 2011 the INDA 5 was awarded a national silver medal award from the Independent Publishers Association in their New York City ceremony and the INPHA 1 followed it with a bronze in 2013, and the INDA 8 took another bronze in 2015, competing with such publishers as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Whitney Museum of Art. Manifest's books are distributed to bookstores across the country, including museum bookstores, and are available through as well as at Manifest Gallery and on the Manifest website. Arts patrons, artists, professors, and art students around the world collect our publications, and our books are often used to supplement course work in college level classes.
