Welcome to the “In Pursuit Of__” open call for art contest for 13-19 year olds, brought to you by Unshuttered at the J. Paul Getty Museum and Amplifier! “In Pursuit of__” is the 2020 theme of the Getty’s award-winning Unshuttered photography program, which is generously supported by the Genesis Inspiration Foundation.

We’ve put together a ‘masterclass’ style 30-minute video and lesson plan teaching you how to make visual artworks documenting what YOU are in pursuit of in your life, right now.

All you need is a cell phone camera and something to write with. The world is full of stories. What is yours?

Winners will have a chance to have their work included in an exciting Amplifier projection series in cities nationwide and in a special J. Paul Getty Museum exhibit in 2021!  Contest ends December 11, 2020 – submit today!
