Photo Open Call: Hyper/Focal

Open Call Promo

"HYPER / FOCAL” is an annual publication curated by the Photography Club at the University of Utah and is going on its third edition. "HYPER / FOCAL” is the first ever open call for the annual zine. This year, we are excited to showcase the artistic talents of all photographers at the University of Utah. The deadline for the open call is Friday, 11/20 at 11:59PM. 2020 has been a turbulent year with the global pandemic, school cancellations, civil unrest, the earthquake, windstorm, and wildfire smoke, and the polarized political climate. During these very unsettled and anxious times, we need to look towards our community and create outlets to cope with the uncertainties of our experiences. For this open call, the Photo Club is asking student's to submit work that engages with this current moment. The theme for our first ever open call is: "20 / 20". Students may submit up to 5 images to be considered for the zine. The submission committee will select the work that it feels relates to the open call theme. As an open submission with limited space available, not all work will be accepted. You will be notified by email if your work has been selected. We are looking forward to reviewing your submission and encourage you to consider joining the Photo Club!
