11th PDP Creative Media Conference: Absorption

The 11th international PDP Conference proudly invites you to take part in this year’s poster design and photography exhibitions, on the theme: Absorption.

The call is open to everyone from professional designers, illustrators, amateurs to interested artists and students, as well as to all professional and amateur photographers.

All authors whose work will be presented at the exhibition will receive a certificate of participation. Top three artworks will receive award, with the best work being awarded with a unique award of the PDP Conference – the PDP Cube.

Details about the “Absorption” theme are available on the official website.

Everything that happens to you is immediately linked to something that came before it. You always insert new experiences into your own personal matrix. You weigh, compare, and contrast things to your own expectations and assumptions.
Perception.

We all experience things differently, which makes us unique and authentic. Everything you perceive, observe, hear, consume, everything you’re exposed to and everything you go through as an individual always affects your work.
Absorption.

Everything that comes from an outside source has an impact on your creative process. It causes your reaction and eventually becomes a part of your own personal narrative.
Reflection.

It is a conscious process, at once both active and inactive. It represents the starting point of creative thought, empathy, and understanding. By interacting with the outside world, we jumpstart many unconscious processes. We analyze and inspire ourselves — both directly and indirectly — and enter a state which eventually leads us to something new: our new selves, new skills and a better understanding of a particular topic.

Absorption, in this context, means being present and aware of the many processes you find yourself in — some of which you help create.

Each participant may submit a maximum of three posters for the Graphic Artwork open call. Submission for the Single/Series Photography call is limited to a maximum of three single photographs and two photo series per participant.

PDP (Print, Design, Photography) Creative Media Conference is one of the last remaining and long standing design and mixed media conferences in Serbia. It was created in order to provide students with an additional layer of education through lectures and workshops. From the very beginning, the conference gave young students and unaffirmed authors the chance to display their work and in doing so present themselves to a wider audience.

The 11th PDP Creative Media Conference is scheduled for 10th–13th October, 2019 at Svilara in Novi Sad, Serbia.
