Last month we wrote about some upcoming deadlines for major photography grants. Below are four photo contests that have deadlines fast approaching.
Newspace Center for Photography 2013 Juried Exhibition
The Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, Oregon, is hosting a contest in which the winners will be part of its 2013 Juried Exhibition. Additionally, one photographer will be selected from all of the entries for a solo exhibit at the Newspace in 2014. Deadline: April 30, 2013.
The American Society of Media Photographers’ New York chapter is one of the co-sponsors for the Image13 international photo contest. First, second and third place prizes will be awarded in two categories: Professional and Student. Prizes include inclusion in a New York City exhibition, a promotional e-mail sent to industry professionals and an ad in PDN announcing the names of winners. Only images created after January 1, 2012, will be eligible for the contest. Deadline: May 1, 2013.
Dorothea Lange-Paul Taylor Prize
The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University relaunched the Dorothea Lange-Paul Taylor Prize this year, with updated guidelines that reflect the changing approaches to documentary projects. The new guidelines include accepting audio files or graphic novels in the written section of the submission; artists need to have already started the documentary project to be eligible; and photographers no longer need to work with a writer to qualify, as solo submissions are now accepted. According to the award’s online FAQ section, “All entries must have one thing in common: evidence that they were created with reliance on documentary methods—research and interviews—and immersive, long-term fieldwork.” The winner will receive $10,000 and an exhibition at the Center for Documentary Studies. Deadline: May 7, 2013.
Daylight Photo Awards
Non-profit book and magazine publisher Daylight is sponsoring the Daylight Photo Awards 2013. According to the contest’s guidelines, jurors are looking for analogue or digital images that “demonstrate the ability to build a strong series of images and a cohesive body of work.” Prizes include $1,000, an exhibition at the Daylight Project Space and a set of Daylight books. Deadline: May 15, 2013.
