Call for entries: Underwater South Australia photography exhibition

Ceratosoma brevicaudatum, Brighton Jetty SA - Dan Monceaux


Nature photographers and artists Dan and Emma Monceaux (Force of Nature) are seeking submissions of existing photographic works showcasing underwater South Australia. Submissions will be considered for a forthcoming group exhibition intended to celebrate the state’s spectacular marine and aquatic biodiversity.


The exhibition will feature roughly 20 works from a dozen or more contributors, and will be hung in the Auditorium Gallery at the City of West Torrens Civic Centre, on Hamra Ave, Hilton. The opening celebration will occur on the 27th of September 2018, with a guest speaker to be confirmed. The exhibition will end on October 11, 2018.


Interested photographers of all experience levels are invited to provide a selection of up to 6 photographic works for the curators’ consideration.


Submissions will be considered on their own merits and collectively against the exhibition’s objectives. They should reflect diversity of subjects (both common and rare), locations and artistic and technical merit. All images must have been captured or recorded in South Australian waters (marine or fresh).


It is hoped that the exhibition will serve as a celebration for those already exploring and photographing South Australia underwater, while introducing the wider public to the many destinations and subjects that make snorkeling and diving here such a pleasure.


DEADLINE EXTENDED: Submissions close midnight 20 August 2018.


How to enter


Send an email with “Underwater South Australia” in the subject line to Dan Monceaux at . Your email should contain the following:


• Up to 6 low-resolution preview images or viewing links

Does it cost anything?


There is no entry fee to submit work for the consideration this group exhibition.
