Call For Submissions: F/Stop - 3rd International Photography Festival Leipzig

Moritz Arnold of F/Stop - the International Photography Festival in Leipzig, Germany got in touch to spread the word about this year's festival. They are currently accepting submissions from photographers worldwide for the 3rd installment of the festival, which will be held from July 1st - 7th. As their press release states:

"The theme of our 3rd F/Stop competition 'Where do we go from here?' asks questions about the coordinates of our existence. From what perspective do we look at the “whereto“? Is it a place, a mood? Where do we fi nd the impulses that show us the way? And on what does it depend, our here and whereto? The international photography festival F/Stop is looking for ambitious single or serial photgraphical works that deal with the 'unknown whereto.'

A select jury of curators, gallery designers, and art critics will choose the best works that are going to be presented at the festival. The winner of the competition will have the opportunity to present his or her works in front of professional critics at the portfolio reviews of the Houston/Texas-based FotoFest in 2010."
