First published as an online monthly in July 2012, doc! photo magazine is dedicated to contemporary documentary photography. It publishes projects discussing today’s world with its issues, challenges and pleasures. Next to the photo stories, the magazine also features essays about photography and interviews. Today doc! photo magazine is a top class paper based publication featuring emerging as well as already established photographers which projects follow the magazine motto: WHEN THE STORY MATTERS. 


We are currently working on two issues and calling for your projects discussing:

MIGRATION (issue #46) 

Migration has been with us since the beginning of humanity, but it has never dominated global news on similar scale as in the last few years. From mass (wars, epidemics, poverty, revolutions, natural disasters) to individual (work, family, college) - there are many reasons for migration. Both, people and animals experience them. But while animal migration doesn’t make us concern, human migrations are often associated with fear and ignorance, which lead to new fences at national borders. In doc! we want to present migration as a phenomenon that cannot be assessed in only one-dimensional way.

Deadline: March 31, 2020
Publication: July 2020


CLIMATE CHANGE (issue #47) 

Climate change is of increasing meaning. It is the last moment to take action and leave the path leading to the end of the world as we know it. What can we do? How to stop or at least slowdown the process which seems to be unstoppable? How do people deal with it? What does their life look like in the face of an impending catastrophe? Is there any idea how to help them in short and long term? How much time do we have?

Deadline: September 30, 2020
Publication: December 2020

We are waiting for your submissions!
