Call for Entry: Analog Forever Magazine Issue 1
Open internationally to both amateurs and professionals, this call for entries is Analog Forever Magazine’s attempt to find, feature, and interview the best talent in the analog photography world for our debut print publication, due out Winter 2019!
We are searching for the trailblazers who shoot decades old expired film through refurbished cameras, capture images with processes invented a century ago, and invent new and creative ways to process and manipulate our mainstream film stock staples. We want to see the work created by the individuals who share our love for the sound of shutters clapping open and close and the smell of darkroom chemicals in the morning.
Regardless of your format of choice, how expensive your lens set is, or the subject matter you shoot we want to see your work submitted! There is no entry fee so there is no reason why you shouldn’t submit! The only thing we ask if that you please follow the directions below!
Deadline for Submissions is May 31st, 2019!
Issue 1 Details
Analog Forever Magazine Issue 1 is being launched on the belief that photographs, especially yours, should be seen in print as well as on screen. We are proud to say that our first print edition will be a creative mix between a journal, magazine, and coffee-table book and will contain a wide variety of photographers and styles from around the world. The publication will be printed by Edition One Books in Berkeley, California and will be 8x10 in size, about 130 pages, and will be printed on 176gsm paper which will be perfect bound with a laminate glossy cover to protect its beautiful pages. This publication will embark readers on a photographic journey around the world and show them vast landscapes of mountains and oceans across multiple countries, the desolation of abandoned cities and towns, the intimate spaces of private photographic studios, and the lives and stories of the individuals and people in our cities and foreign lands. The below timeline describes our process of putting an analog photography focused print publication into your hands!
