In March 2010, in honor of Women’s History Month, Humble Arts Foundation (hafny.org) will present its second edition of 31 Women in Art Photography,
a six-week exhibition celebrating 31 of the most innovative women in
emerging art photography. The exhibition will be co-curated by
Charlotte Cotton and Jon Feinstein, and will take place at Affirmation
Arts.

After considering Humble Arts Foundation’s mission to advance the careers of emerging art photographers, the Humble Arts Foundation has decided to eliminate the age barrier for our 31 exhibition. Humble Arts Foundation has always affirmed that “emerging” is not analogous with age. Therefore, effective immediately, women photographers, regardless of age are eligible and encouraged to apply for the newly titled 31 Women in Art Photography exhibition. For more information about Humble Arts Foundation and submissions for the 2010 31 Women in Art Photography show, visit http://hafny.org/events/open-call-31-women-in-art-photography/.

The SIPF is a worldwide biennial gathering of minds commonly pursuing the advancement and appreciation of photography. An arena for critical thought and academic discussion on photography in Southeast Asia, the festival also functions as a platform to nurture and propel photographers onto the international stage.

Now, the 2nd SIPF commences with two categories for open call. The open-ended theme category continues with the purpose of unearthing new works and talents. This year’s festival incorporates a brand new themed category titled, ‘HUMAN: NATURE’ to address universal concerns faced by the world. The duality in the theme can be freely interpreted either as ‘Human Nature’ or ‘Human Nature’. The ‘colon’ represents a relationship and a balanced ratio between Human and Nature. Thematically, this category is an ambitious call for creative interpretation on HUMAN: NATURE.
