WMA Masters and WMA Commission 2019/20 call for submission on the theme “Light” Submission starts now until 30 September 2019

From now till 30 September 2019 (23:59 Hong Kong time; GMT + 8:00), WMA invites both photographers and artists worldwide to respond to the theme “Light”. Entries for the WMA Masters award and proposals for the WMA Commission grant must relate to the theme and context of Hong Kong.

‘The Video Diary of the Crowd, to the Crowd’ Exhibition

In 2017, WMA launched a crowd-sourced documentary film project, ‘1 July 2017—A Day in Transition’, from which more than 200 videos were gathered from the public. Through juxtaposing these videos, the current exhibition aims to present the dialogues and discussions that have been going on as WMA sets up the WMA video archive. When facilitating accessibility to the video archive, we are inviting more vocabularies and references regarding the categorisation and understanding of the videos in this archive: What are the narrative powers of these precious videos submitted by the public, other than being mere ‘footage’ of documentary? What is the urgency of recording the moment with moving image? These are, perhaps, the first two of some fundamental questions for our contemplation in the crowd-sourcing and video-archiving process.

WMA Commission 2018/19 – Opportunity Recipient Announced

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 annual theme each year. This year the theme of the proposals had to contextually related to “Opportunity”. The panel selected Lo Lai Lai Natalie as this year’s WMA Commission recipient. Her project “The Days Before Silent Spring” explores opportunities in Hong Kong by looking at alternative lifestyles and sustainable development after the “Anti-XRL movement and protect Choi Yuen Village” movement.
