Rust Belt Biennial – Exhibition Call for Entries


Wobneb Magazine is a proud sponsor of the 2021 Rust Belt Biennial. An open call for entries has been announced, and full details can be found at

Following the success of the inaugural RUST BELT BIENNIAL in the Fall of 2019, and as we all push through the pandemic we are excited to announce the SHOW MUST GO ON – winter celebration of photography from around the globe with a special focus on work realized throughout the Rust Belt Region and industrial regions alike around the world.

The Rust Belt, and its people, have known hardships and taught us all about resilience. As we make history together, coming out of once in a century pandemic, we decided to open the RUST BELT BIENNIAL to photographers and photographic work from all around the world.

We are proud to announce Hercules Papaioannou, Curator at the Museum of Photography, Thessaloniki (Greece), as the competition juror.

We are honored to collaborate with the Mahady Gallery at Marywood University, in Scranton, Penn., where the Biennial will be held from January 29th to March 5th of 2022 (opening reception TBA).

This land, its people, the pride and the struggles, the patina of the past, and above all, the histories and memories ingrained in the soil across the region. It is time to make new memories and new histories while revisiting and reevaluating old ones; It is time to start a new dialogue about the state of photography and its social, cultural, and political effects in our society; it is time to give back to the photographic community but also the region; it is time for you to join us! The submissions deadline is December 15th, 2021, by midnight, US Eastern Time.
