We are no longer accepting applications for the 2014 symposium.


The Image Text Symposium

This symposium will bring together 12 fellows: Six nationally and internationally recognized practitioners – artists, writers, publishers, editors – and six early career artists, for a collaboration at the intersection of photography and writing in contemporary art and publishing.

The symposium will be held June 11-14, 2014 on the Ithaca College campus, in Ithaca, NY.

Across three days of experimentation, adventure and creative exchange, the group will develop material for an original art book publication to initiate an independent press associated with Ithaca College.

Junior fellows will be selected by the program directors and senior fellows, through an international call for entries. Selected fellows will attend the three day event free of charge, with lodging and meals provided by Ithaca College.

Fellows may be photographers, writers, or artists working in both disciplines. Early career artists as well as advanced students are eligible to apply.

The application deadline is April 7, 2014. Registration is now closed.
