Sony World Photography Awards 2015

The 8th annual Sony World Photography Awards is now open for entry! This major photography competition receives hundreds of thousands of entries from all over the world and provides massive exposure (pun totally intended) to those who are shortlisted and exhibited. You can enter in a range of categories such as Open (for amateur photographers) Professional and Youth (for those aged 19 and under). Deadlines for entries differ slightly depending on the category you’re entering, but all are early January 2015.

There’s a delicious cash prize up for grabs along with the chance to be exhibited alongside the world’s greatest contemporary photographers so it’s well worth considering if photography’s your bag. Are you thinking, “but with so many entries from all over the world, they’ll hardly choose my work…”? Well stop!! This year’s Awards saw UAL Foundation student Anastasia Zhetvina win the Culture Category in the Youth Photographer of the Year Award for the photo below. THAT COULD TOTALLY BE YOU NEXT YEAR, SO GET SUBMITTING!!

Last chance to take part in our RA Late!

We are teaming up once again with the Royal Academy to create a UAL-tastic Friday Late event in October, this time celebrating the photographic work of Dennis Hopper. Some UAL students have already gotten in their submissions for workshops, installations and happenings, but we’d like a few more of you to take part. This is a great opportunity to showcase your work, engage with a wider audience and GET PAID to work with the Royal Academy! (hello, CV highlight…) In particular, we’re looking for photographers, filmmakers and performers to get involved. Submit by the end of the week, here’s some info:

Photo fans, create a photographic workshop:

We’re looking for a photographer to create and lead an interactive workshop inspired by the Dennis Hopper photography exhibition to take place throughout the RA Late event.

The workshop should be hands on and actively take participants through a process that engages with photography and/or photographic imagery. It should include some kind of physical ‘take-away’ element at the end and be able to accommodate a minimum of 10 people at a time.

The workshop should be inspired by black and white photography or images, and engage with the spirit and style of the 60s. Concepts to think about include: documentary photography, 60s fashion and music, film icons, pop art, hippy culture, urban landscape, Easy Rider, American culture and the Civil Rights Movement.

Filmmakers, show your work:

We’re looking for original short films to be exhibited in a dedicated screening room during the RA Late event.  

The brief for the content of the films is open, but they must be black and white and no more than 3 minutes long.

Performers, express yourselves!

The radical social changes that occurred in the 60s led to the performance art movement. ‘Happenings’ was the term art critics gave to ad-hoc performances or time-based events.

As part of the RA Late event we’re going to be staging a series of ‘Happenings’ throughout the galleries and are looking for stand-out performances of all disciplines.

These ‘happenings’ could be music, monologues, poetry, performance art, your manifesto, a chance to get on the soap-box, a pitch, a demonstration, a conversation or interview, a dance or a 30min silent meditation.

They can be performed on your own or in small groups, and include your own props. When submitting your ideas please tell us how long you envisage your performance lasting.

Submit your proposal by midnight on Sunday 27 July!

Bad Paintings [Donations Wanted!]
GMB & SUARTS LIVING WAGE CAMPAIGN // SALARIO DIGNO
Have you got a really rubbish picture, painting or drawing kicking about in your room? Or maybe you fancy using your bank holiday weekend to make some super bad art?  If this is the case, do some good, help out a great cause and donate your bad paintings NOW!
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
This is a call out for bad paintings, drawings and graphics! On Friday 9th May the GMB Union and SUArts are hosting an event to raise funds for the cleaners Living Wage campaign. As part of this even we will be holding a bad painting auction.
The cleaners at our university are contracted via an agency, and paid at a rate of £6.31 an hour - the National Minimum Wage. This is a poverty wage that workers are not able to live on in London and sustain a decent standard of living. Later this month the workers from the UAL High Holborn site are taking action in demand of the London Living Wage, a rate of £8.80 per hour.
The money raised from your bottom out, awful artwork will go directly into covering lost wages of staff whilst they are on strike
Send your artwork to by May 7th:
University of the Arts Students’ Union, 1st Floor, 272 High Holborn, LONDON, WC1V 7EY
Or, alternatively bring it into the Students’ Union or email education@su.arts.ac.uk to work out somewhere easier for us to pick up the work.
