For the 2022 installation, the artwork will be installed on the large windows on the front of the King Edward train station alongside an artist statement. The images will be placed on a 97″x 94″ section with 1.5″ vertical gaps between each section. The three sections combined have a total area of 294″ x 94″ which can be used to display one large image across all the panels or a series of images. For reference, here is a photo of Angela Blažanović’s work installed at this station as part of Capture 2020.
You may submit a single work or a related series of works that speak to the theme of “still life”. If you want to submit multiple works that are not related to each other, please make multiple submissions, as multiple images in one entry will be considered as a single body of work, and the jury will take into consideration cohesiveness. Please note we cannot publicly display images of people this year. As per InTransit BC Public Art Installation Policy: any depiction of graffiti, religious messages, corporate logos, or of individuals or groups within an art work is not permitted.
Unlimited entries are FREE for Booooooom members and Capture Photography Festival members. If you’re a Capture member, email Capture to request the submission link. All entries by non-members are subject to a fee of $10 USD paid at the time of submission.
All entries will be reviewed by Jeff Hamada, Editor-in-Chief of Booooooom, to identify a shortlist. This list will be reviewed by a jury of Capture Photography Festival and Boooooooom staff who will mutually agree upon a finalist. The chosen artist or artist group will be selected in November.
Deadline for submissions: 11:59 PM PST on October 18, 2021
If you are unable to afford an entry fee, or a membership, we are offering one-time submissions for photographers who are experiencing financial hardship. If you cannot afford to pay this fee and would still like to submit, go here.
