    The Names of Accepted Photographers

    Hi,

    Thank you again for your participation in ONWARD '09.

    This year's ONWARD was another success followed by our first competition which was only a year ago. The competition attracted 413 photographers nationally and internationally who submitted over 1600 photographs.

    Peter Barberie, Curator of Photographs at Philadelphia Museum of Art, has carefully selected 73 photographs by 69 emerging photographers. The names of photographers are listed on our website. The selected photographs represent a good segment of contemporary photographic work in approach, subject matter, and processes.

    These photographs will be showcased in the ONWARD '09 exhibition at the Project Basho Gallery during the months of January and February 2009. The official opening will be held on January 10th from 2 to 5 pm. Award winners and honorable mentions will be announced at the opening by Tsuyoshi Ito, the Program Director.

    We look forward to seeing the participants at the opening in January '09.

    Warmly,
    Project Basho
