Responding to a Call for Submissions and using my photography for a good cause
For the past month or so, the world has responded to the Ukraine crisis, setting up donation centers, offering humanitarian help, showing off its blue-and-yellow lights in solidarity with Ukraine. And I’ve tried to do my small part–donate, promote others’ work, and photograph the blue and yellow lights in my own neighborhood.
Also, recently, while browsing the Art Jobs website, I’ve come across a call for submissions looking for photography work inspired by the Ukraine crisis. Images were to be displayed during a benefit concert–the recent Berlin Modular Society (#10) concert that took place in Berlin, Germany, on March 25. Proceeds were to go to organizations supporting Ukraine.
Hence, I went ahead and submitted three of my blue-and-yellow photographs.
As creatives, sometimes we have the opportunity to use our artwork for something good–to support a cause we believe in, to spread the word about something we feel strongly about, and so on–and, hence, to contribute and hopefully help, even if only in a small way.
[Disclaimer: I’m not associated in any way with any of the two websites mentioned above, just spreading the word, that’s all.]
Also, if you’re interested, check out the ArtJobs website. You’ll have to get an account (it’s free) and then log in to be able to browse through the calls for submissions, contests, job openings, and so on. Also, most of the contests ask for entry fees, but some of them are quite interesting.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
