Juried by: Anne Massoni, Executive Director & Curator | Houston Center for Photography
Deadline for Submission: Tuesday, April 23, 2024 at Midnight PST
Notice of Acceptance: Thursday, May 30, 2024
Opening Reception (In-Person): Thursday, July 11, 2024, 6-8pm @ LACP Headquarters, 252 S. Los Angeles St, Los Angeles, CA 90012

  Open to photographers from across  the world, this call invites submissions for images and projects that  explore issues relating to global, regional, national, communal and  personal conflicts.
  Wars, terrorist attacks on civilians, gun violence, political strife,  attacks on democracy, violence directed at the LGBTQ+ community, as  well as BIPOC and AAPI people, social media bots and trolls—our world  could be seen as being driven by disputes and clashes, affecting our  connections with one another and ourselves. In Regarding the Pain of Others,  Susan Sontag observes how the presentation (or the spectacle) of the  atrocities of war in the media affects viewers’ viewpoint and behavior.  This call reflects upon those issues, but also wonders about the ways in  which the capturing of conflicts – from global wars to intimate moments  – impacts the photographers and their perspective.
Conflict addresses how global conditions shift how we see  others and represent ourselves, how we respond and communicate, how we  see and understand lives in other places, as well as how we as  individuals are affected by political, social and economic  transformations.

1st Place winner will receive $1,000; 2nd Place winner will receive a $500 LACP gift card; 3rd Place winner will receive $250 LACP gift card. Honorable Mentions: Other artists will receive honorable mentions and have their work shown  with the winners in our online gallery + an in-person exhibition at LACP  Headquarters opening on July 11, 2024.
