Call for Artist - The 8th Amado Photography Award

posted 09 Nov 2020


Amado Photography Award, an international photography contest that Amado Art Space hosts in a bid to develop talent among photographers with Asian nationalities, including Korea, marks the 8th year. In the era of digital technology, photography is currently undergoing radical conceptual change in parallel with contemporary changes being observed in the areas of production, distribution and consumption. At the same time, photography continues broadening the horizon while keeping in contact with contemporary art. Amado Photography Award, noting the significance of something inherent in photography as a medium and the extensibility, focuses on reconsidering concept of photography and redefining meaning of photography. To this end, the award aims to develop and support photographers courageous enough to attempt artistic experiments while pondering extensibility of the medium, hoping that it will serve as a momentum to spur steady growth in the future.
