Call for Entries: Emerging Photographer Competition

“The Magenta Foundation is pleased to announce Year Nine of Flash Forward, its Emerging Photographers Competition.

2013 will see the return of Flash Forward Festival at its home base, Boston’s Fairmont Battery Wharf, where we bring together emerging professional photographers from around the world. Concurrently in Toronto, Flash Forward programming will focus on educational experiences targeting local high school students.

This is an open call for submissions to all photographers working in Canada, the UK and the US.  Applicants must be 34 years-of-age or under as of December 31, 2012.

Bright Spark
One cash prize of $5,000 will be awarded to the 2013 Bright Spark, an emerging photographer whose submitted body of work is identified by the jury as being extraordinarily accomplished.

As in the past, all 2013 Flash Forward Winners and Honourable Mentions will have their work published in the catalogue that chronicles the annual juried competition.

The Flash Forward group show, made up of a selection of photographs from the accompanying annual catalogue, will travel from Toronto to Boston and other places to be announced.
