Project Competition: 

2011 AWARDS CLOSED

2010 Overview

About

The annual Project Competition honors committed photographers working on documentary projects and fine-art series. Three jurors reach a consensus on the First Prize and 10 Honorable Mentions. Each individual juror also selects a project to receive one of the three Juror’s Choice awards.

Testimonial

“Winning the Project Competition offered tremendous recognition of my work, as well as real encouragement to continue looking at sensitive social issues. The Exhibition and the Fraction Magazine publication were great platforms for exposure, as well as Review Santa Fe; a fantastic opportunity to meet with curators, editors and colleagues, which led to other exhibits in Europe. Ultimately, the financial reward allowed me to complete my latest project. Center’s continuous support and professionalism has been invaluable.”
