WMA Introduces Theme of 2019/20 Cycle – Light

WMA invites photographers and artists worldwide to respond to the theme – LIGHT.

The call for submissions of WMA Masters and WMA Commission of the Light cycle will begin on 1 June 2019. All entries 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 Annual Exhibition – Opportunity!

The exhibition “Opportunity! WMA Annual Exhibition” will showcase photographic works of WMA Masters’ finalists, including, Pierfrancesco CELADA, CHEUNG Nga Ling, Jolans FUNG, Sharon LEE, Saskia WESSELING, Beatrice WONG and YIP Kin Bon, as well as the literary works of WMA Students’ finalists.   The venue will also feature moving and still images of LO Lai Lai Natalie, recipient of WMA Commission, as a prelude to her project The Days Before Silent Spring.  

Intellectual Property Rights Workshop Series

Starting in Spring 2019, WMA will present a series of workshops to discuss intellectual property issues relevant to the development, sharing, and co-creation of visual art works, and the use of archival materials.

WMA Open 2019 – Call for Submissions

The WMA Open 2019 calls for submission of images from every member of the public according to the theme “Opportunity”. From 22 February to 29 April 2019, images submitted to the WMA Open photo contest will have the chance to win prizes, including cash and professional development opportunities.

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.
