In the past, PhotoVogue has helped launch the careers of numerous artists internationally by featuring them in Vogue Italia and its website, showcasing their work in exhibitions and collaborations in branded content with prominent brands. Just to name a few, some artists endorsed by PhotoVogue that ended up shooting the covers of Vogue’s editions worldwide include Kennedi Carter, Camila Falquez, Nadine Ijewere, Mous Lamrabat, and Sonia Szóstak. Now that we are globally engaging all the editions of Vogue worldwide, the possibilities to feature artists from different backgrounds, countries, and aesthetics have multiplied. You could be one of the new voices that will shape not only our brand identity, but our culture as well.
With this Open Call we are looking for visions that push the boundaries of the current fashion landscape. We want to highlight the next generation of socially conscious fashion image makers, artists who are a driving force for change and whose work can engage in a dialogue with different genres, from documentary to art. We seek artists who are able to tackle issues relating to social justice and sustainability in powerful, vibrant images and films. Fashion has become a shared language and one of the primary tools to build identity and Vogue, through its photography and stories, has always tackled its intersection with sociopolitical issues by raising questions, embracing innovation, and even influencing change. We are committed to paving the way for the new generation of fashion image makers, and we’d love for you to join us.
How to submit:
We are looking for artists who express themselves with photography, video, or both, and everyone can apply: The only requirement is to be at least 18 years old.
Every applicant will be able to submit a maximum of 10 fashion images from one project or 1 fashion video or a multimedia project made with photos and videos or an illustration, 3D art, or any combination of these disciplines.
Both unpublished work or photos/videos taken for an already published editorial are allowed. It can be a project with a documentary slant or closer to escapism. There are no limits to creativity: The important thing is that the project expresses your vision of fashion and your unique, personal point of view.
The Open Call will run on Picter from April 4 until June 25 and submitting will be completely free of charge.
The submissions will be evaluated by Condé Nast staff from all over the world and visual experts from the broader international visual community coming from as many different backgrounds as possible, forming an inclusive and multifaceted perspective.
