Deadline: 15 November 2015
Open to: Photographers who live and know one of the following cities: Athens, Berlin, Bratislava, Brussels, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Naples, Paris, Rome, Seville, Vienna, Vilnius, Warsaw and Zagreb
Prizes: photo will be printed in the cafébabel year book and exhibited during celebrations of 15th anniversary.
In 2016 cafébabel will turn 15. In honour of the occasion they are working on an ambitious project: to print their first book. The anthology will collect 15 memorable cafébabel stories about “Europe in real life“. To give the book an additional pan-European and contemporary touch, Cafebabel are currently looking for young photographers from the 15 featured cities. Maybe you could be one of them?
The book will include 15 stories from 15 cities from the last 15 years: and you will be asked to illustrate one of the chosen texts with a contemporary look at the city in question, and – of course – your personal touch. Nothing more than that.
Photographers will receive a “naked” unillustrated cafébabel feature report text from the past which you will use as your raw material and point of departure. Photographers will be free to choose the format and choice of subject. Your only reference will be the text, and the contemporary facets of the city itself. There will be a maximum limit of 3 photos per city.
15 photographers are needed – one for each of the following cafébabel cities: Athens, Berlin, Bratislava, Brussels, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Naples, Paris, Rome, Seville, Vienna, Vilnius, Warsaw and Zagreb.
Your photo will be printed in the Cafébabel year book and exhibited during celebrations of 15th anniversary.
