Call for Entries – Out of the Ordinary




Something that is Out of the Ordinary is unexpected or uncommon. It could be curious or even freakish, edging towards the darkness or touching on the unreal.  Out of the Ordinary might fill you with distrust or excitement; reasonable and unreasonable. For some it could be a daily challenge which bears a psychological impact. For others, it could be the most remarkable and exquisite thing.

We are calling on you to enlighten us with your interpretation of Out of the Ordinary. Can our perception of the unusual be challenged? Do we need to be reminded that something society has normalised is in fact extraordinary? Or should we simply marvel at something beautifully unusual?

We are calling on you to interpret the brief as widely as you possibly can.
