Shirin Neshat invites you to submit work that responds to a line from the poem “Common Love” from Persian poet Ahmad Shamlou:
I am a common pain, scream me!
The deadline for submitting is May 25 2023 (23:59 UTC+1). Der Greif reserves the right to change this deadline at any time.
Submissions have a non-compulsory donation of €13.00. If you are unable or unwilling to pay the donation, you may request a voucher for a free submission at email@example.com. The donation assists Der Greif in covering the expenses of this submission opportunity, not generating profits.
You can submit a restricted number of photographs into two categories: Project A, which is 1-5 photographs (content of the magazine) Project B, which is 1 portrait photograph (cover picture of the magazine).
A detailed explanation of each step can be found on the introduction page of the submission process on Picter.
Photographs that have been selected in past Der Greif opportunities are not suitable for re-submission. Our aim is to avoid repetition and showcase new and unique work by featuring photographs that have not yet been published by Der Greif. Our ultimate goal is to support and provide opportunities to as many photographers as possible. Any images that do not comply with these conditions will not be considered for the selection process.
If your work is selected, you authorize Der Greif and any respective guest curator to publish your work in a print publication, display your photos, or have them displayed in any format for press, marketing and communication purposes associated with Der Greif, and use, display or project your photos in the context of Der Greif and on the Internet. Der Greif will provide credit by stating either your name or, upon your explicit request, your pseudonym (artist's name) and, if possible, your URL. You agree that Der Greif is exclusively entitled to make decisions on the display of the submitted photographs. You also agree that your photos may be put into new contexts with other photographs and presented alone or in combination with other photographs. You acknowledge that Der Greif does not guarantee the publication of your submitted photographs and you waive all claims on remuneration.
If your work is selected to be the cover picture of the magazine, you grant permission to Der Greif to crop the image as necessary to ensure a consistent appearance. Further you authorize Der Greif to use the cover for merchandising activities related to Der Greif (e.g. advertisements, campaigns, postcards, tote bags, profile images on social media, etc.).
You agree that your photographs will be archived regardless of a publication. You may revoke this consent via email to »firstname.lastname@example.org«. In case of a revocation the respective photographs will be deleted immediately after the end of the project. Photographs that have been published online will remain visible.
If your work is selected you will receive a free copy of the magazine, shipped free of charge to your postal address provided during the submission process. Additionally, both published and non-published submitters will be offered a discount on the purchase of (additional) copies. Published submitters are eligible for a higher discount than non-published submitters.
You declare that you are the sole copyright owner of all submitted photographs and agree to submit photographs from third parties only if you have explicit authorization from the respective copyright holders.
You declare that you have explicit consent from all people who are depicted in the submitted photographs (or their legal guardian in the case of children) to submit and exhibit them by Der Greif.
In the case of street or public photography, you assume all responsibility for exhibiting and further processing your submitted photographs. Additionally, if applicable, you declare that you have the right to submit pictures of places, buildings, landscapes, military sites or operations, means of transport, goods, and persons to be exhibited as described in these Conditions of Participation.
You declare that you are solely liable for your submitted photographs and that you indemnify Der Greif from any claims of third parties arising from the violation of these Conditions of Participation.
The unenforceability or invalidity of one or more clauses in these Conditions of Participation shall not affect any other clause in these Conditions of Participation. If possible, any unenforceable or invalid clause in these Conditions of Participation shall be modified to reflect the original intention of the parties.
The place of general jurisdiction is Munich, Germany, and German law will be applied.
