Description 

The WMA Commission invites entries for proposals from artists and photographers from both Hong Kong and the international community, to create new research based photography work in Hong Kong, focusing on the theme of TRANSITION. Project proposals must contextually relate to both the theme TRANSITION and to HONG KONG. A five-member Selection Panel will choose the WMA Commission recipient, who will be awarded a HKD 250,000 grant which will contribute towards production of the successful proposal and a public event featuring the completed work which will be entered into the WMA Collection. The WMA Commission is a part of the WMA programme.  

By facilitating and supporting original, creative interpretations of TRANSITION, the WMA Commission encourages a unique perspective on how Hong Kong is affected by an issue that has global implications, while increasing public awareness and knowledge. The HKD 250,000 award grant covers artist fee, creation (including such activities as research, travel and production; resources such as an assistant or translator and daily expenses) and a public event. It does not include accommodation for overseas artists[1]  or venue costs for public presentation[2], which are covered by the organiser. Overseas participants should ensure that they are able to stay for at least one month for the project and also set aside time for the public presentation.

Outcome 

Exhibition and/or publication.

Accommodation Information 

Accommodation costs are covered only for overseas artists and for a maximum period of 2 months subject to discussion with organisers.
