Photoworks are partnering FotoDocument and BioRegional to commission ten public space photo essays launching during Brighton Photo Biennial 2014 and to remain in situ for ten months.
Each of the ten essays will be themed on one of the principles of One Planet Living and works will be installed in a corresponding key public space in Brighton & Hove.
- Zero Waste – Waste House, University of Brighton (tbc)
- Sustainable Transport – Brighton Railway Station
- Sustainable Materials – Emmaus, Portslade
- Local and Sustainable Food – Open Market, London Rd
- Sustainable Water – Seafront
- Land Use and Wildlife – Foredown Tower
- Culture and Community – Dome, Café-Bar
- Equity and Local Economy – The Amex Community Football Stadium (tbc)

The exhibitions will collectively form an ‘arts story trail’ around the city and be accompanied by a map and literature to illustrate the route and significance.
Submissions are welcomed from established and emerging photographers who are not in full time education. To apply, photographers must be at least 18 years old, live in the UK and have a valid UK bank account.
The judging panel will be made up of leading talents in the field of photography including Simon Roberts, Professor Francis Hodgson (Financial Times, University of Brighton), Celia Davies (Photoworks), Melanie Friend (University of Sussex), Nina Emett (FotoDocument) as well as representatives from BioRegional, Brighton & Hove City Council and other key partners.
Photographers will be judged on the artistic excellence of their existing work, their track record of delivering documentary photography projects and their motivation for undertaking this commission.
Each selected photographer will receive a fee of £2.5k to include travel and subsistence. Further funds are available to cover printing and installation costs.For full details and an application pack visit the FotoDocument Website
