WHAT: Nō Studios today announced a call for photographers to be featured in its first annual PhotoMKE festival in early September. Nō Studios PhotoMKE will activate six Milwaukee neighborhoods – Clarke Square, Harambee, Layton Boulevard, Lindsay Heights, Metcalfe Park and Muskego Way – with outdoor photo galleries. The galleries will feature photography from residents representing what love, beauty, resilience and happiness looks like to them, where they live. By inviting locals to reclaim and represent their communities through visual art, Nō Studios PhotoMKE aspires to affirm the value of these Milwaukee neighborhoods through the lens of those who live there.
WHEN: Photo submissions are due July 31.
HOW: For information on how to submit a photo, visit https://www.nostudios.com/photomke. Photographs should be uploaded digitally at 300 dpi and include the story behind the image. Nō Studios will host a virtual real time Q+A Monday, July 19 at 6 p.m. to answer questions about the submission process.
DETAILS: Photographs must represent one of the six participating neighborhoods. They can be new or existing images covering a variety of subjects, including but not limited to buildings/architecture, people, objects, historical landmarks, elder statesmen, or an event/moment. Eight photos will be selected to represent each neighborhood by community leaders and MIAD faculty. Winners will receive a $300 stipend, along with 50% off rental equipment from MKE Production rentals.
Artistic support for Nō Studios PhotoMKE has been provided by True Skool and MIAD.
