Planning for the Photoville Fence 2013 is in full swing!
What makes up a community? Is it the people we meet, the places we go, the things we do; or the creatures we encounter along the way?
That is the question being asked for the annual art/photo festival, which has opened the submission process to “photographers of all levels.” Submissions should be your “best image series that captures the essence of ‘community’ and [that] fits into one or more of the competition categories: HOME, STREETS, PEOPLE, CREATURES, PLAY.”
United Photo Industries, Photo District News (PDN), and Brooklyn Bridge Park welcome their newest partner, Flash Forward Festival, as they once again join forces to curate and produce THE FENCE 2013 – the annual summer-long outdoor photo exhibition that drew over 1 million visitors during its 10 week run at the picturesque Brooklyn Bridge Park in 2012.
All images will be considered by an internationally renowned jury and resulting images will make up THE FENCE, which is expanding this year to a new city – creating TWO public photography installations!
In addition to our 1000ft long photographic installation displayed in Brooklyn Bridge Park in NYC, we are partnering with Boston’s Flash Forward Festival, to produce a special curated version of THE FENCE, displayed along the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston – offering even more opportunities for visibility for all participating photographers from across the Globe!
THE FENCE in Brooklyn Bridge Park will be unveiled in June this year with a rollicking fun party in the park and will be on view all summer long leading up to PHOTOVILLE in the Fall! The Boston FENCE will be unveiled at the beginning of the Flash Forward Festival in May this year!
Photoville is an annual outdoor art/photo festival along Brooklyn Bridge Park. Last year’s inaugural Photoville featured over 40 exhibits, lectures and workshops, and a rotating cast of food trucks and around 30-plus repurposed shipping containers sitting on 60,000 square-feet at Pier 3’s uplands. The themes were international and local
