Professional photographers, aspiring photographers and students should enter this competition today! Winners will earn cash prizes, free websites and photobooks, and — best of all — worldwide exposure to a very influential global audience.
Deadline for entries is September 15, 2009.
Lens Culture International Exposure Awards discover, recognize, reward, and promote talented, new, emerging and established photographers from around the world.
We’re looking for exciting images from every continent, and from diverse points of view: documentary, fine art, photojournalism, street photography, poetic, personal, abstract, and human.
Full details at: www.lensculture.com/contest.
Prizes will be awarded, and all winning photographs will be exhibited online, prominently, to coincide with Lens Culture’s extra-special Paris Photo Edition in November 2009.
A stellar international jury of photography experts will review and judge every photograph submitted:
Stephen Mayes, director of VII Photo in New York, and former chair of the World Press Photo competition.
Sujong Song, director of several international photo festivals, curator, author, and editor based in Seoul, South Korea.
Xavier Canonne, director of the Musée de la Photographie, in Charleroi, Belgium.
Stefanie Braun, curator at The Photographers’ Gallery in London, and organizer and curator of the annual Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.
Jim Casper, editor and publisher of Lens Culture.
And thanks, too, to the American Society of Media Photographers, for helping to craft and refine the rules for the competition.
