Photosynthesis Magazine is holding an open call for our second issue to be released in September 2023. The theme for our second issue will be "Terrorism".

In the United States, the month of September is a month of remembrance for the terrorist attacks that happened on 9/11, 2001. This act of terrorism has become synonymous with the word in the US, sometimes even making other acts of terrorism seem "less than" to citizens. This is absolutely due to the severity of what happened on 9/11. Regardless, Photosynthesis Magazine wanted to use issue #2 to provoke viewers to question their own perceptions of Terrorism including domestic terrorism - not to be confused with domestic abuse. Some examples of domestic terrorism can be found here.

Basic Requirements: 

-Artist must fill out all information as requested including name, email, website and/or Instagram, at least one image, and a description of at least 4 sentences describing how the artwork relates to the prompt. 

-Artwork for Photosynthesis Magazine is a collage only publication, with some mixed media being accepted on a case-by-case basis.

-Artwork may NOT in any way suggest explicitly or implicitly that a certain ethnic group, race, or people are more likely to be terrorists. It may NOT in any way imply that a group of people deserved the terroristic attack(s). The work submitted CAN be a comment on religious practices/cults when appropriate.

Photosynthesis reserves the right to decline any work that doesn't meet these requirements.
