CALL FOR ARTISTS The Light Observer

The light observer is giving the winner of this #thelightobservercall 1st edition the opportunity of having their work published. All choices in terms of design, format, materials and printing techniques used for the publication will very much depend on the nature of the selected project. The number of copies printed can’t be established beforehand since it will depend on the nature of the work published, yet we undertake to publish a minimum of 300 copies. The artist can choose to talk about the topic of light using the medium of representation he/she prefers - painting, photography, illustration, writing, sculpture etc..

The light Observer is a small and independent publisher. Despite financial limitations we are used to make quality publications and employ design choices that suits a project. We will cover the costs of designing, overlooking pre-press, printing, distributing and promoting the final publication, which will be published in 2020. The winner will also receive 10% of the total number of copies that will be printed.

The project will be under the supervision of Eleonora Paciullo who has worked with GOST Books, Witty Kiwi, Zatara Press and now develops projects for MAGNUM photographer Joan Fontcuberta.

#thelightobservercall 1st edition is open to all photographers, artists, writers, poets, painters, no matter what your age, gender or nationality is. The project should be linked somehow to Light, all the projects that do not satisfy this requirement won’t be kept in consideration.

To participate you have to subscribe to the light observer magazine available on Kickstarter and send us an email together with your project at
