January 27, 2011 is the entry deadline for CENTER‘s annual Project Competition, which recognizes documentary projects and fine-art series. The winner receives $5,000, an exhibition, publication in Fraction Magazine and admission to CENTER’s juried portfolio review, Review Santa Fe.
Jurors for this year’s competition include Simon Baker, curator of photography at the Tate museums, Britian; Alexa Becker, acquisitions editor at Kehrer Verlag Heidelberg Publishers; and Christina Cahill, deputy director at Reportage by Getty Images.
Entries for CENTER’s Project Launch competition and Choice Awards, and applications for Review Santa Fe, are also due by January 27.
Project Launch, which carries a $3,000 award as well as publication and exhibition opportunities, is given for fine-art and documentary works-in-progress with an eye toward assisting the photographer in completing a project.
The Choice Awards recognize photographers of all kinds with exhibition and publication opportunities. Three categories of juror—a curator, art dealer and editor—each select one winner.
