Are you an emerging writer looking to publish new work? We're inviting pitches for texts which critically engage with the ways in which photography can speak to issues of environmentalism, colonialism and climate justice. This call is part of Autograph's new exhibitions Wilfred Ukpong: Niger-Delta / Future-Cosmos and Mónica Alcázar-Duarte: Digital Clouds Don't Carry Rain.

This opportunity is for emerging writers, by which we mean someone who has perhaps had 1-2 pieces of text published. Don’t be put off pitching us a piece if you haven’t been published before – we’re keen to work with first-time writers too. Though we are based in the UK, Autograph welcomes stories from around the world.

We will consider submissions for writing in a range of formats so long as it speaks to the themes. This might include – but certainly isn’t limited to – a comment piece, a remembrance, a piece of poetry, a listicle, or a short work of fiction.

The successful applicants will receive a £300 fee to produce the full text, editorial support from Autograph and publication on our website. The selected proposals will need to be ready to publish by mid-April.
