Post Lockdown Humanity – Understanding the Change

RUFA is educational partner of Post Lockdown Humanity – Understanding the Change: an Open Call addressed to young professional photographers that focuses on the themes of transformation, change, adaptation. The Call is promoted by Asht*art Consultancy in collaboration with SiZ Industria Grafica and is aimed at the publication of a dedicated volume.


Within a global context of great uncertainty, what the Coronavirus and its effects have dramatically interrupted is re-emerging through yearnings and new hopes, challenging humanity to find a balance in this historical moment of transition. Artists are invited to address ideas of change, transformation, and adaptation. These thematic areas can be interpreted through a storytelling that may include different genres such as series, reportage, street photography, still photography, nature photography, etc. Particular attention may be placed on the themes of Nature, Culture, Identity.

Who is it for?

The project aims to offer visibility and support to professional photographers under 35 of all nationalities. The work presented may be unreleased or belong to projects already developed.

10 photographers will be included in a promotion path curated by Asht*art Consultancy and in other collateral initiatives promoted by the Partners. The first 7 selected photographers will be rewarded with the publication of their works in a limited edition Art volume. A photographer selected by Berlin-based agency JERGON will have the opportunity to be supported in an international artistic-curatorial mentorship project.

The material must be sent no later than by 31 March, 2022.
