Global Open Call: What is Beauty?

PhotoVogue is thrilled to announce its second Global Open Call. This year, PhotoVogue invites artists from around the world to submit work that challenges the traditional notions of beauty.

As all corners of the world experience cultural shifts, so too must the idea of beauty evolve. We are no longer constrained by gender, perfection, and homogeny: beauty is not a box to be checked, a pass-fail test based on antiquated norms. It is ever expanding, and always evolving, as we liberate ourselves from tired stereotypes that previously dominated our cultural landscape. Never before has expression been more diversified, and representation more far-reaching.

We are looking for artists who work across formats, whether through photography, video, or both, who address the question: What does beauty mean today? We welcome every kind of visual aesthetic—from realism to fantasy, documentary-inspired to glam, direct to suggestive. We will also accept projects created with AI, as long as its use is disclosed.

PhotoVogue is endorsed by all 27 editions of Vogue worldwide. If your work is selected, you will be part of the main exhibition at the 2023 PhotoVogue Festival in Milan and will have the chance to be featured in an issue of Vogue.
