Call for Entry | PDN presents The Curator

The search for undiscovered fine-art photographers is on through May 3.
Photo by Amy Friend
Six new and emerging fine-art photographers will exhibit their work this summer at Foley Gallery in New York City through PDN‘s The Curator. The annual competition will also award each photographer with $200 to B&H and $250 to Moab Paper, plus a $3,500 award to one grand-prize winner.

One of last year’s winners, Amy Friend, was selected for her series “Dare alla Luce” (Italian for “to bring to the light”), through which she explores the relationship between presence and absence. Friend worked with a collection of vintage photographs retrieved from both personal and impersonal sources, altering each print with small holes through which she shines light, then subsequently re-photographing them. See more of her work, along with the other winning photographers from 2015, here.

Call for Entry | Emerging Photographer

Photo by Luisa Dorr

Due: March 7, 2016
Emerging Photographer | PDN
Each issue, Emerging Photographer features a new group of talent with five or less years of professional experience, selected by editors from Emerging PhotographerPDN and Rangefinder.

We love the diverse work we receive from photographers around the world, all with different styles and stories to tell. One of last year’s selected photographers, Luisa Dorr, immediately grabbed our attention with her documentary series on a young girl, Maysa, who aspires to become Miss Brazil. From the intimacy of the photos, to her use of beautiful light, to the careful 10-image edit of her series, we knew that Dorr deserved a platform for her series. She and nine other photographers each received features in the Winter 2015 issue, which was sent to photo editors, art buyers and creative directors, in addition to galleries and photo festivals. Digital editions are posted on issuu.com (see them atwww.issuu.com/eephotogroup).

We want your work for the next issue. Visit emerging.pdncontests.com to enter. for more information on how to enter.
