The deadline to submit images to The Curator, the Search for Outstanding Fine Art Photography, is just hours away. The jurors for this fine-art photography contest include Brian Clamp of Clampart, Ariel Shanberg of Center of Photography at Woodstock, Gravelle Pierre of Kris Graves Projects, Julie Grahame of aCurator.com and other creatives.
