ONWARD Compé '12: Juried Photography Competition by Project Basho - Juror: Todd Hido
Juror: Todd Hido
ONWARD Compé is Project Basho's annual international photography competition for emerging photographers. Our main goal is to increase the exposure of talented image-makers and create new outlets for their work. Juried each year by a leading figure in contemporary photography, ONWARD Compé spotlights new envelope-pushing work that continues to further the medium. Now in it's fifth year, ONWARD Compé has been steadily growing, drawing submissions from around the U.S. and across the globe.
The competition is not limited by theme and is open to all photographic media, from historical processes to new digital technologies.
We are pleased to invite Todd Hido as the ONWARD Compé '12 guest juror. Based in San Francisco, Hido's affecting and ambiguous landscapes and portraits explore loneliness and anonymity in American suburbia. His award-winning monographs including House Hunting (2001), Outskirts (2002) and Roaming (2004) have garnered critical acclaim and established him as a important voice in contemporary fine art photography. His work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions in commercial galleries and museums and is part of many prestigious collections including the Guggenheim Museum, George Eastman House, Whitney Museum of American Art, and more.
Hido is an adjunct professor at the California College of the Arts.
