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. Selected winners will be exhibited in a group show at MILK GALLERY NYC, featured in PDN and on PDNonline and receive some cool prizes.

(Check out the Fuji Instax pics that PDN’s John Gimenez shot during the gallery opening.)
