Internship opportunity with The Contemporary!


The internship primarily provides a platform and budget for emerging arts scholars to design, research, and produce an issue of our annual intern publication, Scroll. Each year, the intern team works together to identify a theme relating to the mission and history of the museum. Interns then spend the majority of their time working on their Scroll issue under the guidance of museum staff.

Additionally, the position is an opportunity for individuals to learn about the operation of a nomadic, non-collecting museum focused on site-specific and subject-oriented projects in Baltimore. Interns will work closely with our small staff to carry out projects and facilitate our additional programming such as our Speaker Series that brings internationally-recognized artists, critics, curators, and art professionals to Baltimore.

The Contemporary offers each intern a stipend of $1000 and a production budget for Scroll. Academic credit may be arranged with the intern’s college/university. Student status, however, is not a prerequisite for consideration.

MICA Photo student featured in “Catalogue” magazine

MICA Photo major, Faith Couch, listed in Catalogue magazine article…

“Faith Couch, Instagram handle blackpowerprincess, is a photographer using the medium to highlight both the political and the personal, developing (in her words) “intimacy between the viewer and her works.”  Examining what it is to identify as a Black, American woman via relationships with her friends as well as creating political works, Couch wants to “reinvent the image of Blackness through her photographs.” The results are amazing.” – text courtesy of  “Catalogue” magazine.

“Born in Baltimore”: call for entries

New festival features emerging & established voices in cinema and photographic arts – “Born in Baltimore”….

Screen Shot 2017-04-04 at 9.11.57 AM

“Born in Baltimore” is a new festival celebrating new voices in cinema and photographic arts.  Filmmakers and photographers of all ages whose work is of, from, and about Baltimore are invited to submit.  We’re looking for images, sounds, and textures that are uniquely Baltimore; the music, the faces, the stories of our city and its citizens; past and present, young and old, native and newly arrived.

Capture your world and your vision on film.  Share with a live audience and on the Born in Baltimore website.
We want to hear from you!

Born in Baltimore is a production of Baltimore Youth Film Arts,
which is sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Film and Media Studies Program
and supported by a grant from the Andrew. W. Mellon Foundation.



There is no fee to submit and artists of any level of experience may enter.  Emerging voices are welcome alongside established voices.  Beginners are welcome!  Films must be under ten (10) minutes in length and photography submissions are limited to three (3) images.  Images may stand individually or work as a series.  Filmmakers may submit up to two (2) films totalling no more than ten (10) minutes for both.  Filmmaker-photographers may submit in both categories.

Born in Baltimore will consider all types of material, including documentary, all genres of fiction, animated, and experimental films; music videos; and stand-alone excerpts from longer works.  Short shorts (under 3 minutes) are welcome.  Films must be at least 30 seconds in length.  We will accept submissions of works in progress, but cannot consider second submissions of revisions, so submit the version you want us to see.  Films in all languages are welcome.  Dialogue in languages other than English should be accompanied by subtitles.  All photography subjects and styles are welcome.  Freshness and honesty are a plus.  We appreciate surprise and authenticity as much as polish.  We encourage artists to use their own best judgement when submitting material featuring illegal activity, explicit sexuality, or explicit violence.  Films and photographs with strong sexual content or gratuitous, graphic violence may not be accepted.

We cannot consider material created for clients, but personal, expressive films and photographs created in a workshop or class are welcome.  Artists may submit only their own work.  Collaborations are welcome if all partners agree in writing to the terms and conditions of the festival.  There are no restrictions on the date a work was created.

We cannot consider any work that contains copyright violations.  All entries must be original.  Use of any third party materials, including third-party prose, song lyrics, photography, or video requires both acknowledgement and written permission of the copyright owner.  This includes material with sources on the internet.  Original or public domain music is preferred.  We encourage filmmakers to use their own new, original music or music created by their friends.  This is an opportunity to get your work out there where it can be heard!  All contributors, including musicians, must agree in writing to festival terms and conditions.



Submitted films and photographs will be judged by professional filmmakers and photographers living and working in Baltimore.  All decisions of the judges are final.  We hope to showcase a wide range of films and photographs, but because festival screening time and exhibition space are limited not all entries can be accepted.

There will be Judges’ Awards for the top three films and top three photographs or groups of photographs.  There will also be Audience Favorite Awards for two films and two photographs or group of photographs.  Judges’ and Audience Awards will be announced at the festival.


Attendance at the Born in Baltimore Festival is strongly encouraged for all entrants, even if your film or photograph is not accepted for exhibition.  You contribute by participating and the festival values your contribution.  Join us in celebrating Baltimore’s growing film and photographic arts community.  Support your fellow artists.  Admission is free!

Submissions are open!


June 15: Accepted filmmakers and photographers notified via email. Names of accepted artists and titles of accepted works posted on the Born in Baltimore website.
