Smiling Gecko: Submissions Round-Up
You have just a few days left to submit your work to Smiling Gecko: Through The Eyes Of The Artist. This is an incredible opportunity to travel to Cambodia and document the work of the Smiling Gecko humanitarian project, done in collaboration with world-renowned photographer Hannes Schmid and Boldomatic.
We're looking for artists of all mediums to participate, not just photographers. In addition to an all-expenses-paid trip to Cambodia, the selected artists will also get their work featured in an exhibition, online, in print, and as part of Vice Europe's coverage of the trip.
Get inspired by some of the submissions below and then submit your own work. We'd love to see it.
