$5,000 Clarence John Laughlin Award: Deadline Sept. 1
Created by the artist-run non-profit New Orleans Photo Alliance (NOPA), The Clarence John Laughlin Award supports photographers who use photography, in any style or genre, traditional or digital, “as a means of creative expression.” The $5,000 prize is open to photographers residing in the US. This year’s juror is curator and writer George Slade.
Applicants should submit a portfolio of 10 to 20 images, a written statement and a $25 application fee ($60 for non-members, who then become NOPA members) through the NOPA web site by September 1. A complete list of guidelines, judging criteria and rules can be found at:
