Open Call for writers & artists



The Goethe-Institut Myanmar and the Myanmar Photo Archive invite you to participate in our commissioned program for 2023. We are offering 45 grants to creatives to reinterpret the images from the Myanmar Photo Archive. The archive holds the largest collection of independent Myanmar’s vernacular photography from across the country. The Myanmar Photo Archive began its collection in 2013 and has consistently showcased its materials through local and international exhibitions and publications. Since 2018, the Goethe-Institut Myanmar has been a strong supporter and collaborator in these efforts, providing the opportunity to financially support these grants, including a publication program. It is through the generous support of the Goethe-Institut that this opportunity becomes possible.
