The Landskrona Open Call window exhibition places 50 images throughout Landskrona city center in the windows of its boutiques, hotels and restaurants. With this exhibition we want to bring photography out into the public space, this is a crucial part of the festival, how we interact with the city and how we put it on the map. The window exhibition will run during the summer up to and during Landskrona Foto Festival. To accompany the exhibition we will produce a catalogue of all the images selected.
Please submit to our Open Call on www.picter.com
We look at if the work is new i.e., created in the last five years. How well the image relates to the theme ‘ So Far’. How the image will work in the context of public shop and restaurant windows in the city.
