The 4th annual Capture Photography Festival will take place April 1-28, 2017 around Metro Vancouver and parts of the Lower Mainland. Capture Photography Festival is a not-for-profit organization devoted to exhibiting challenging and thought-provoking photography from local and international artists.

Launched in 2013, the annual Festival strives to nurture emerging talent, engage community, and spark public dialogue about photography as an art form and a vessel for communication. The April 2017 iteration of the Festival will present photography at over 50 esteemed galleries throughout Metro Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, and include public installations, tours, films, artist talks, and panel discussion.

Capture Photography Festival is now accepting submissions for exhibitions and events for the 2017 iteration of the Festival. Proposals must be submitted by November 15, 2016 at 11:59pm. This call is open to artists and art spaces. All exhibitions of photography and lens-based works addressing any subject matter will be considered. Additionally, we welcome proposals for innovative events.

EXHIBITION PROPOSALS:

This year applicants can choose either the juried “Selected Program” or the non-juried “Open Program.”

The “Selected Program” is open to exhibitions presented in professional spaces. Capture defines a professional space as any space that operates full-time as a gallery or exhibition space. This includes public galleries and museums, commercial galleries, artist-run centres, artist collectives, etcetera. Proposals submitted to the “Selected Program” will be evaluated by a jury of artists and arts professionals.

The “Open Program” is open to exhibitions presented in any space, from conventional gallery spaces, to community venues, to the side of a bus. Exhibitions can be any length, including one-day pop-ups. Submissions to this category will not be juried, and will automatically be included in Capture 2017 if they meet the Festival’s mandate.

EVENT PROPOSALS:

Event submissions must be related to photography and can include exhibition openings, talks, panels, tours, workshops, family events, films, and more. Events will not be juried, and as long as they fall within the scope of the Festival, they will automatically be included in Capture 2017.
