🦅 STRONGER TOGETHER 🌱
GEMP organized Photo Compettions for a while
I love getting people from all around the world together for art projects.
For many years I ran an organization called Transnational Queer Underground (TQU).
For TQU I organized several photo competitions, and #TheGalleryProject, an exhibition including the works of 47 artists from 27 countries, which I exhibited in Tallinn/Estonia, Sofia/Bulgaria, Podgorica/Montenegro, Prague/Czech Republic & Berlin/Germany.
GEMP is my newest project, and I’d love for you to get involved as well! You don’t have to be an ‘official artist’ to submit something – it’s enough that you are human and have an idea about the topic of the call.
GEMP brings together different perspectives around one topic six times a year. Below you can see the current call and submit your work.

Sunshine! We all see the sun every day. Even if it’s not sunshine every day. She has an influence on us and everything that we see and don’t see. No matter who and where we are in this world.
Sun ☀️ We all see her every day. She has an influence on us and everything we see and don’t see. No matter who and where we are in this world. But do we actually see and acknowledge her enough? When we put on sunscreen? When we eat our food, that wouldn’t exist…
#TheGalleryProject includes artworks by 47 artists from 27 countries…
Climate Crisis, What Now? and Your Favourite Place are three of the photo…

How It Works
Subscribe to the newsletter
I send out 2 newsletters per month – in every odd month the newsletter includes the call and some interesting information around the topic, to get you inspired.
In every even month, the newsletters present the submissions and give you an opportunity to find out more about the artists and their work/calling.
Submit your work
You always have until the last day of every odd month (January, March, May, July, September, November) to submit your work.
You may submit your own drawings, photos, poetry, short stories, recipes, films, or other digital formats.
Written submissions should not be longer than a thousand words. Pictures a minimum of 800px (width) but not larger than 1 MB.
Please choose a creative commons licence and include it in your submission, as well as a short bio and your name (to be displayed) and links to Social Media/Website or other forms of contact if you don’t have either.
Send your submissions via email.
