ShowOFF OPEN CALL 2021! Submit your project until January 10, 2021!

Are you a beginner photographer and want to learn from the best? For the 13th time, the ShowOFF section is launching a competition for emerging visual artists who are just starting their careers! Become respected and well-known artist as Diana Lelonek, Lena Dobrowolska, Michał Łuczak, Łukasz Rusznica, or Zosia Promińska.

We are waiting for your submissions until January 10, 2021 (11:59:59 p.m. CET).

We are also pleased to announce that ShowOFF will be partnering with the Museum of Photography in Krakow (MuFo), which will be hosting the exhibition of one of our laureates, to be prepared in cooperation with a MuFo curator. As the previous years the ShowOFF Section Partner is also Lablab Foundation. Thank you for your support!


The ShowOFF process begins with an open competition. Artists may submit up to two photography or film and video projects for consideration. The requirement is that these projects have never been presented, in any form, at any sort of cultural institution or event (museum, gallery, festival, etc.), including in group exhibitions. A jury made up of the 2021 edition’s curators: Silvia Pogoda, Bartosz Flak and Tomasz Lazar will carefully select the five projects to comprise the 2021 ShowOFF Section. In 2021, the ShowOFF exhibition format will be modified. Instead of a group exhibition (the format for the past seven years), each of the five winners will have their work featured as a solo exhibition during Krakow Photomonth 2021.
