Call for Submissions for Lay Flat 02

Instructions from layflat.org for submissions for photographs and writing. Issue 01 is sold out.

Photographs
Deadline: August 1, 2009 by 7pm EST

Photographic submissions are now being accepted for Lay Flat 02 on the theme of "Metaphotography." In epistemology, the prefix 'meta-' is used to mean beyond/about (its own category). For example, metadata is data about data. Accordingly, metaphotography is photography about photography. This issue aims to bring together the work of photographers whose images are conceptually in dialogue with the history or conventions of the medium itself. Lay Flat 02 will be assembled by Lay Flat's founder and editor, Shane Lavalette, along with this issue's guest editor, Michael B├╝hler-Rose.

To be considered for publication, please send an e-mail with the subject line "LF02 SUBMISSION" to photo [at] layflat.org along with the following:
1. Your name, age, location and website.
2. A short statement about your work and why it's relevant to the theme.
3. 5-10 photographs (72dpi, saved as a .jpg, 800px wide/tall).
Submissions that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered.

Writing

Textual submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis by sending your writing (either a PDF or Word .doc) and a brief biography to words [at] layflat.org.
