"Call for Entries: 2001 Photo Review Photography Competition"
2001-05-15 until 2001-05-31
USA United States of America
Kathy Ryan, the award-winning photo editor of The New York Times Magazine, will be the juror for the 2001 Photo Review Photography Competition. The Photo Review, a highly acclaimed critical journal of photography, is sponsoring its 17th 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 Summer 2001 issue. Thus, the accepted photographs will be seen by thousands of people all across the country 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.
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 like DoubleTake, and have sold their work to collectors throughout the country.
$1,000.00 in cash prizes will be awarded, with first prize donated by Abbey Camera, Philadelphia, as well as the $500 Catherine and David Steinmann Purchase Prize for the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
An entry fee of $20 for up to three prints or slides, and $5 each for up to two additional prints or slides, entitles all entrants to a copy of the catalogue. In addition, all entrants will be able to subscribe to The Photo Review for $28, a 20% discount.
All entries must be received by mail between May 15 and May 31, 2001.
