Theme and Selection:

“The Human Condition 2018” – The judges for this art call welcome artists and photographers whose works provide viewers with unique interpretations of the human condition. The visual narrative of the artist’s work should speak to the human condition:  from joy to despondence, kind fortune to adversity, liberating freedom of expression to agonies of suppression. These myriad strongholds of energies, which hopefully inspire your works, should speak to us as they represent your brightest or darkest experiments and enlightening realizations in your life and should be represented as such here in your fine artwork for us to absorb and potentially integrate into our own lives.  So, your submitted creations should express the subject as felt through the artist’s empathy or subjective eye of experience.  The message is meant for us, the viewer.
