Exploring the Power of Storytelling in Photography

November-December 2023

As The Dust Settles.jpg

"Fiction is the truth inside a lie."

Stephen King

We are thrilled to announce our newest photo exhibition: "Fictional Narrative". This exhibition celebrates the art of imaginary storytelling and invites photographers to submit their most captivating, evocative, and narrative-driven images.

  • A cash award of $300 and one copy of the exhibition catalogue* will be given to the First Place entry. This winning entry will also be promoted on social media.

  • The Second Place entry will be given one copy of the exhibition catalogue* and promotion on social media.

  • The Third Place entry will be promoted on social media.

We're looking for images that tell an imaginary story, convey an emotion, or capture an artificial moment in time. The possibilities are endless: you might submit a portrait that pretends to capture the essence of a person, a landscape that evokes a sense of a place that doesn't exist, or a still life that suggests a larger invented narrative.

Entries will be judged on their technical merit, visual impact, and narrative power. The fee for submission is $30 for up to five images. The accepted entries will be showcased in an online exhibition from mid-November through the month of December, a video will be uploaded to YouTube, and an exhibition catalog will be available for purchase.

*Recipient must be located in a country or region to which Blurb Books ships. Decagon Gallery takes no responsibility for shipments lost in transit, delayed or damaged.
