Edition365 was launched last year to create a body of work which now stands as a time capsule of one of the most notable periods in recent history – 365 artworks from hundreds of artists, capturing a shared moment in history from humans all over the world. Now Edition365 returns and invites you to submit your expression of human history.
Conceived to stand as a historical reference for many decades to come, Edition365 is a global and multi-faceted portrait of the last year, uniting the voices of renowned photographers, emerging artists and everyday people alike.
Edition365 returns and invites you to submit your documentation of human history 1 year on. Anybody, from anywhere, practicing any form of expression, is invited to submit an entry. Submissions can be in the forms of photographs, moving images, digital art, musical compositions, spoken word and videos. The work should simply relate – whether directly or indirectly – to any of the significant events that have occurred over the last year.
Visit the 2021 showcase to witness the incredible work curated by ART3 alongside the world’s longest-running photography brand.
The 2022 edition is now open, accepting work made between 1st October 2021 and 30th September 2022 (the date that calls to entry will close).
