View Full Version : ONWARD '11: A Journey for Emerging Photographers

10-08-2010, 03:47 PM
Project Basho is pleased to announce ONWARD '11, an annual juried photography competition exclusively featuring the work of emerging photographers. ONWARD focuses on new work that continues to push the medium and gives photographers the opportunity to present their vision and talent to a broad audience. Through our partnerships with other photography organizations, photographers will have the chance to foster and grow a vibrant and rich photography community. There is no specific theme for ONWARD and submissions are open to any photographic medium from historical processes to new digital technologies.

We are pleased to have Larry Fink as the ONWARD '11 juror. Mr. Fink is a very prolific fine art, commercial and documentary photographer and educator with a career that spans over 40 years. His work has been the subject of exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of Modern Art; the San Francisco Museum of Art; the Musee de la Lausanne Photographie in Belgium; and the Musee de l'Elysee in Switzerland. He has also been awarded two Guggenheim Fellowships in 1976 and 1979. Mr. Fink is best known for his project "Social Graces", which shed light on the dichotomy between the New York elite and a working-class America.

Deadline: November 19, 2010

$40 for up to 3 photographs, $10 for each additional up to 5 (total)

ONWARD is open to individuals who have not had previous commercial gallery representation or a contractual agreement with any gallery.

Photographs selected by Mr. Fink will be featured in a group exhibition at the Project Basho Gallery in February and March 2011, which has seen hundreds of visitors each year, as well as in the ONWARD online gallery. For the two winners, special recognition will be awarded in the form a two-person show at the Project Basho Gallery. In addition, both winners will receive special gifts courtesy of Lensbaby and FotoVisura. A selection of artists will also have the opportunity to exhibit their work through several of our media sponsors including Fraction Magazine, PhotoArts, Visura, Flak Photo, and SeeSaw Magazine.

We want to let you know that the deadline to submit to ONWARD '11 has been extended to November 30th! Entries must be received via our online submission form (http://onward.projectbasho.org/submit.html) no later than 11:59pm on Tuesday, November 30.

We have been receiving a great amount of excellent work and we wanted to extend the deadline due to the fact that we added so many extra awards in the past couple of weeks. These developments include a purchase award from the West Collection (http://onward.projectbasho.org/west-collection-purchase-award/), as well as the chance to travel to the Ring Cube photo gallery in Tokyo which will exhibit a selection of images from ONWARD in May 2011.
