FFS OPEN CALL 3. 26th april / 6th june
For its 2021 edition, Fotofestival Schiedam is happy to announce the launch of the new international Open Call. We invite professional and amateur photographers from all over the world to reflect on the theme 'After the Deluge' which is related to the ecological effect we have on our planet.
You can submit your work from the 26th of April till the 6th of June 2021.
After the Deluge
Quite apart from the fact that we want to show who we are and leave a lasting impression of all the good and all the beauty that mankind has created, there is no denying the ecological effect we have on our planet. The effects become more visible day by day. Just look at the current climate change and the increasing temperatures on earth. The melting ice caps are changing our planet just as definitively as the former ice ages.
The American ecologist Eugene Stroemer was the first to come up with the idea of characterizing the effect of mankind as a measurable, powerful biological and geological change. Stroemer advocates a geological epoch of his own called 'Man', just like the Tertiary and the Holocene, but geologists disagree. Our impact is now threatening our existence, but will the rise in sea level and the remnants of plastic in the great timescale of our planet still be noticeable in a thousand years? Doesn't nature just take over our place again as if we never existed?
Apply today and do not miss the chance to be exhibited together with winners of the World Press Photo and National Geographic photographers such as Lori Nix & Kathleen Gerber, Alain Schroeder, Ralph Pace, Jo-Ann Macarthur, Bence Mate, Luis Tato, and others.
Due to the current outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the festival will take place in the historical city center of Schiedam from 18 June to 04 July 2021. In case of further aggravation of the epidemiological situation, the festival will be postponed to October 2021.
