Photo contests have the potential of providing good cash awards as well as possible accolades, media coverage, and sales. They also offer the opportunity to get in front of jury committees that often include curators and gallery owners. The problem is that there are lots of contests out there, which makes it difficult to decide which ones are worth the time, effort and expense of applying. Here are couple that got our attention:
The Art of Photography Show
Exhibition: August 13 – October 16, 2011
Judge: Anne Lyden Associate Curator at the J. Paul Getty Museum
Producer: Steven Churchill
First Place Prize $2,000
