Photo Kavya 2011 - Call for Entries

Photo Kavya is an annual competitive photo exhibition organized by Nepalphotography.org to promote young and upcoming photographers. With a sole aim to bring the unseen and unknown photographers to a week-long “gala photo exhibition” this is the second year Nepalphotography.org has set out to look for young and talented photographers.

The basic requisite of entering Photo Kavya is good visual storytelling. “Kavya” means poetry, or prose – so what we’re looking for is photos that contain a story. However, out of all the entrants, we select only 10 final photographers who will exhibit their works in the Photo Kavya exhibition. After undergoing couple of rounds of interviews and selection, we pick the final 10 photographers and their 50 photographs that will grace the walls of Photo Kavya.

Eligibity Rules and Criteria:
  1. Photo Kavya is free to enter by anybody possessing good photographs. However, after the selection, each exhibiting photographer will have to pay a non-refundable NRs. 6999/- as participation fee. Review meeting is free of charge.
  2. The photographers will be selected on the basis of the quality of work. Although we’re targeting fresh newcomers, any interested photographer is eligible to participate.
  3. By submitting their photographs to Photo Kavya, the photographer agrees to grant the permission to exhibit, archive and use the photograph in promotional materials or press articles.
  4. The photographers will be called for a second round of meeting based upon the samples of the photographs submitted by the participant. Each participant should explain about themselves and their work in about 500 words and should attest not less than 10 photographs along with their submission email, which should be send to nepalphotography.org@gmail.com.
  5. Once reviewed, the photographers and organisers will undergo another round of selection of photo and the exhibits will be finalized.
  6. The final selected photographs will be put up on display in a reputed art gallery, accompanied by opening and closing ceremony.
  7. Entry deadline is 15 February 2011.
  8. All decisions made by Nepalphotography.org are final, and all disputes shall be addressed by the organisners, Nepalphotography.org.

Surendra Lawoti was born in 1972 in Panchthar, Nepal. He is currently based in Toronto, Ontario, where he teaches Photography as an Adjunct Faculty at Ontario College of Art and Design. He received his BA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago (1999) and MFA in Photography from Massachusetts College of Art and Design (2005) in Boston. He has received grants from Artadia, Somerville Arts Council, Community Arts Assistance Program Grant through City of Chicago and Ontario Arts Council. His work has been exhibited widely in Chicago and Boston in the US, in Toronto, in Medellin, Colombia and in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Surendra is interested in the dynamics of social class, race, gender, religion and sexuality and how that affects individuals and social groups in a given historical time frame. For his current work Don River, he has been photographing the landscape of Lower Don River Valley in Toronto, its residents and its recreational users. The work deals with the inglorious history of Lower Don, homelessness, socioeconomic disparities and effects on urbanization on the river.

Along with Don River, Surendra will show work that depicts the Nepali Diaspora that he made while he was in the United States. He will also share his personal experiences of studying, teaching and working in the field of photography.
