The Worldwide Photography Gala Awards' Calls for Entries

Finalists announcement of the 7th Julia Margaret Cameron Award and the 7th Pollux Award have been postponed due to delays to get the pre-selection jurors together, whihc for the first time is being done in face-to-face meetings rather to doing online. Hopefully everything will be ready rught after Easter, and posted (and announced by email) next Wednesday 8. At the same time, winners of the 2014 Best Photo Competition will be also announced. We're sorry for these inconveniences but we preferred to do this annual meeting of the Gala Awards' staff, all together again for the first time doing a great job in this pre-selection of the images of the finalists to be submitted to the respective final jurors, Jill Greenberg, Chema Madoz, and Julio Hardy, respectively. Thank you all for your understanding.

In the meantime, please take a look at our recent and CURRENT CALLS FOR ENTRIES:

(Until April 8 you can enter any or all of the current three calls for entries with 20% discount applying the discount code 04082015)






For over two years David Hirsch has been cooperating with WPGA as a curator, juror, and publisher, featuring our awardees' galleries in his site call4artists.com. We regret to inform that David has passed away after a courageous one year fight against cancer. 

For many months his illness interrupted his plans with call4artists and the project of launching the magazine Exel. He will be lovingly remembered by his friends, his surviving daughter Katie, and by us, who enjoyed his entrepreneur spirit. Katie has finally closed an arrangement with us, and we will take over the magazine project and are planning to finally release the first printed issue -long time awaited by many photographers- within 2 months. 

Regarding the site call4artists, which has remained unchanged since David's illness was severely aggravated, we still have to decide if merging it with our galaawards site, or update it as it is, or release a new one. What we are sure is that this type of site was and could be in the future, an interesting tool of information for the photographers' community. 

As an starting point we will begin with the launching of the printed magazine Exel and will decide later how to proceed afterward. Content of this first issue of Exel will be exactly as planned by David, publishing the images of the artists he has committed to featuring them in the magazine. 

We encourage those who may have either subscriptions or any kind of pending matters with Call4Artists to email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to fulfill accordingly the continuity of the relation established with that site.
