Deadline June 15: Laurence Miller, Director of the prestigious Laurence Miller Gallery, one of New York City’s leading photography galleries for over 30 years, will be the juror for the 2015 Photo Review Photography Competition. The Photo Review, a highly acclaimed critical journal of photography, is sponsoring its 30th annual photography competition with a difference. Instead of only installing an exhibit that would be seen by a limited number of people, The Photo Review will reproduce accepted entries in its 2015 competition issue and on its website. Thus, the accepted photographs will be seen by thousands of people all across the world and entrants will have a tangible benefit from the competition.
Also, the prize-winning photographers will be chosen for an exhibition at the photography gallery of The University of the Arts, Philadelphia. And Mr. Miller will select one photographer for inclusion in the summer show at the Laurence Miller Gallery in New York City. Plus numerous Editor’s Selections will be exhibited in several Photo Review web galleries.
Because their work was seen in The Photo Review, past winners have been given one-person exhibitions, have had their work reproduced in other leading photography magazines, and have sold their work to collectors throughout the country.
Awards include an Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera kit with 12-50mm lens and FL-LM2 electronic flash; SilverFast Ai Studio 8, SilverFast HDR Studio, SilverFast SE Plus 8, from LaserSoft Imaging; a 24″x50′ roll of Museo Silver Rag; a 20″x24″ silver gelatin fiber print from Digital Silver Imaging; a ToughTech Duo hard drive from CRU; numerous camera bags from ThinkTank Photo; an Alpine Labs Michron time-lapse device; and flash drives from USB Memory Direct. In addition, William Earle Williams, the Audrey A. and John L. Dusseau Professor in Humanities; Professor of Fine Arts and Curator of Photography, at Haverford College, will select an image for a $500 purchase prize for inclusion in the Haverford College Photography Collection, one of the largest and most comprehensive college photography collections in the United States.
An entry fee of $35 for up to three prints or images and $8 for each additional image entitles all entrants to a copy of the full-color catalogue. In addition, all entrants will be able to subscribe to The Photo Review for $36, a 20% discount. (Higher rates apply for non-US subscribers.)
