20th DongGang International Photo Festival - OPEN CALL 2022

South Korea


We invite you to submit your work to the 20th DongGang International Photo Festival, to be held this year from July 22nd to October 9th, 2022 in Yeongwol, Korea.

This year's theme;

Eureka - An Emerging Revelation

Our dreams are always incomplete. It is a key that opens doors to a new future. a myriad of outside signals could even be perceived as revelations. Signaling infinite possibilities, and that will lead to various non-verbal experiences and fill the void of our lives with the memories and emotions they carry with them. Our dreams help us grasp the time, then a violent intellectual outburst surges from our uncontrolled psyches. It is a Eureka moment, a moment of fresh insights and new connections. A longing for a new connection will take us to a puzzle of unknown interconnectivity. This state of enlightenment and the feeling of joy can be reproduced indefinitely and may very well trigger someone else’s Eureka moment.
