Exhibit Around is searching for 30 authors interested in submitting single pictures and Projects & Portfolios about the Open Call. Selected pictures will compose an Urban Story: this project will have two international exhibitions, one photobook and its release during the festival Trieste Photo Days.


The City: lights and shadows, colors and grayness, frenzy and relaxation, history and modernity, opulence and misery. Contrasts that shape people’s lives. The city is surrounding us, influencing us, constraining us. Anyways, at the same time, we melt in it. Key element of “Urban and Human Empathy” is Mankind absorbed into the urban fabric.

Open Call is from 20 March to 9 April 2017. To submit the pictures it is needed to fill the Upload form, selecting “Urban and Human Empathy”.

Project Urban and Human Empathy benefits:

  • Part of the pictures (at least one for each photographer) will be displayed in an international exhibition spread in more venues in Cracow and/or Budapest, along with a photographic reportage
  • Same pictures (at least one for each photographer) will be exhibited then in Trieste Airport  for two months (October and November) during Trieste Photo Days 2017
  • Publication of all selected pictures in the official photobook “Urban and Human Empathy”
  • Publication of selected interviews of the authors on the website and on media partner network
  • Logistics, organization, print, merchandising, visual communication, transportation and setup of all the selected pictures is made by our staff.

Submissions to this Open Call is free. Selected Authors will be contacted with a proposal of refund inclusive for all the above points about this project.

Exhibit Around will select the two best authors and will reward them with a free 2-night stay in Trieste at the presentation of the book “Urban & Human Empathy”, as part of Trieste Photo Days 2017 (last weekend of October).
