BlowUp is a BlindBoys initiative to provide a platform for public access to and engagement in photography. BlowUp runs as an open platform which invites people to register online and share their photographs from around the world. The online platform will culminate in a street exhibition.
From the submissions to the open platform, four fellows will be chosen to work on individual projects in January 2012, the outputs of which will be exhibited in the Experimental Art Gallery at IHC, as part of the UnBox festival (Feb 2-5, 2012).
BlowUp is open to submissions from all. If you intend to apply to be a fellow as well, please mention that along with your submission.
Most submissions will be part of the open street exhibition.
Only four fellows will be selected based on their submissions and will be invited to attend the festival and install their work.
