Nits DOCfield>15
Call for entries

DOCfield> 15 calls for entries to receiving photographic, audiovisual and multimedia works for Nits DOCfield>15, the free outdoor screening nights taking place during June. Submit your work until April 7th!

Under the focus of The heart of the matter, chosen by Jessica Murray to curate this year’s festival, there’ll be four different subjects referred to Nits DOCfield>15:

1. Stree Photography
2. From my Block (local storytelling from around the world by photographers working at home)
3. In motion
4. Resistance

The purpose is to open the festival for new documentary photographic and multimedia proposals and frame them in an initiative that recognizes its relevance and social value. We are searching for talented authors with expressive ability to communicate in their own language and show through photography and multimedia their particular vision of reality. We seek solid and elaborate projects, even if they are only in their beginning, to give them visibility in this festival which makes Barcelona a center of documentary photography.

Until next April 7th (14 hours) you may send your submissions to info@docfieldbarcelona.org

The artistic director of the festival will select the works to be screened and announce their decision to the photographers by 30 April. The festival’s organization takes into account the payment of copyright royalties for public performance and exhibition.

Guidelines

To take part in the Street Photography theme night, submitted selections should be no more than 60 photographs and no less than 30. They must be JPEGS (72dpi – 1200 pixels), named and numbered in sequence. Example: AuthorsName_001.jpg

All other submissions (From my Block, In Motion and Resistance) must be edited audiovisuals, no longer than 7 minutes. They must include Spanish subtitles when possible or English as an alternative. Files must be 1080p / HD, named and titled. Example: AuthorsName_title.mov/mp4
