Exposure+ Photo 2023 - Open Call

Exposure+ Photo

• Deadline: March 31st, 2023

• Prize: Exhibition in Kuala Lumpur

• Category: Open

• Entry Fees: Free


Exposure+ Photo 2023 is a photography festival that will take place in the vibrant city of Kuala Lumpur in September. It is our goal to show, share, and discuss fresh and innovative photography and video with audiences in Malaysia and the region. Open to Malaysian and international photographers alike.

As part of the second EXPOSURE+ PHOTO festival, selected photography and video projects will be displayed in September 2023 at various partner locations in Kuala Lumpur. For the 2023 theme "A Different Light," photographers from all over the world are encouraged to submit recently finished or in progress works that were influenced by stories, memories, or lived experiences. The visual stories you've always wanted to tell, reimagine, or retell in a new way, approach, format, or narrative are what our selectors want to see: those fantastic tales from childhood or encounters with strangers, the fond memories of family outings, the initial feelings and infatuations. Perhaps you'd like to reshoot a previous story from a different perspective? Try looking at your street photos from a different angle. In your stories, play different protagonist and antagonist roles. The possibilities are endless because of your imagination. Photography and imagination are powerful storytelling tools; unconstrained by conventions, restrictions, or rules. You can tell stories that are true, true fiction, or somewhere in between. A panel of seasoned professionals will evaluate and select your projects, which will be produced and displayed in one of our multi-venue partner locations in Kuala Lumpur. All Genres: For the first time, international artists will be eligible to apply to this open call! Documentary, conceptual, experimental, or fine-art disciplines—all of which have a distinct place in the contemporary world—can be used to create projects and video stories. Twenty artists will be chosen to exhibit their work in response to the theme "A Different Light."
