2011 09 17 Lens Culture International Exposure Awards 2011

The Competition

 

Lens-Culture-2011

Lens Culture International Exposure Awards discover, reward, and promote talented, new, emerging and established photographers and multimedia creators from around the world.

We're looking for exciting work from every continent, and from diverse points of view: documentary, fine art, nature, photojournalism, activism, street photography, sports, fashion, poetic, personal, abstract and human.

An international jury of photography experts will review and judge every entry submitted.

Three Categories for Awards in 2011:

Note that only some of the prizes are listed below, there are many more and full details are given on the competition website.

Multimedia Awards

This year, we introduce an important new category to the Awards competition — Multimedia.

Presentations that combine photography, video, graphics and sound are becoming prominent, headline features in the world of social networking, activism, fine art, and online news. Photographers are taking more and more control over how their work is edited, produced and presented. And we want to discover who is creating the most engaging multimedia projects today.

Multimedia from all genres and categories will be considered.

Multimedia Award Cash Prizes:
Grand Prize $1,500;  2nd Prize $500;  3rd Prize $250

Portfolio Awards

Submit 10 to 15 photographic images that work well together as a group — thematically, aesthetically, as a story, or simply as a range of your photographic talent. Edit your selections carefully, since this category will be judged on the strength of the group of photographs as a whole, and not as individual photographs. Entry fee: $75.

Portfolio Award Cash Prizes:
Grand Prize: $1,500;  2nd Prize: $500;  3rd Prize: $250

Single Image Awards

Often, a single powerful photograph captures our attention as important, artistic, meaningful, and memorable. A great photo can stand on its own, demonstrating a remarkable level of visual perception, sensitivity, and creativity. Photographs of all genres and all categories are welcome. Entry fee: $35.

Single Image Award Cash Prizes:
Grand prize: $1,000;  2nd prize: $250;  3rd prize: $100;  25 Honorable Mention Awards:

Enter today!

Deadline for submissions is September 17, 2011

Winners will be announced on October 17, 2011. 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 2011.
