NEPN invite proposals for a new photographic commission offered in association with the Royal Horticultural Society.
The commission is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The selected proposal should explore horticultural science through a contemporary photographic lens.
In particular we wish to commission a photographic project which will respond to the RHS Science Strategy theme ‘Gardening in a Changing World.’
We particularly welcome proposals which take a narrative, documentary approach. Projects already in progress will be considered, provided there is a clear connection to the commission theme and the benefit of this opportunity to creative practice is clearly evidenced.
The commission will form part of NEPN’s project for 2018/19 ‘Observe. Experiment. Archive’ which explores the relationship between contemporary photographic practice and science, creating new opportunities for photographers to engage with non-arts partners and inviting audiences to engage with photography as a means to understand natural, astronomical and health sciences.
The commission should be undertaken between April 2019 – October 2019. Commission Fee: £4,000
Deadline: Monday 25 March 2019, 9am
