Asian women photographers are invited to submit work for inclusion in a series of print exhibitions and projected slideshows curated by Yumi Goto (of Reminders Project and Photography Stronghold)  Exhibitions and screening will be part of the 2013 Chiang Mai Documentary Arts Festival held in Chiang Mai, Thailand from February 1st-14th .

The photo essays, series and bodies of submitted work may be about any issue, event or person but must have been photographed in the applicant’s native country. Completed bodies of work and ongoing projects are both acceptable.

Applicants who are ethnically Asian but were born outside of Asia are also eligible, but must submit a body of work photographed in their forefathers’ country. We have received numerous questions about this stipulation, so would like to provide the following random examples:

1. A woman brought up in France but born in Cambodia may submit work from Cambodia

2. An American woman with a Chinese mother and Filipino father may submit work from China or the Philippines

3. A half-Asian woman is also eligible

Please email Yumi Goto at  g.youme@gmail.com if you have any queries on eligibility and she will be happy to consider your specific situation.

Submission guidelines

3 winners will get a print exhibition at the festival  – 7   finalists will get their work projected.

Deadline Dec 1st 2012
