Photolucida
Call for Entries: Critical Mass 2015
Deadline: Tuesday, July 28, 2015

“Registration is now open for Photolucida’s Critical Mass! Awards this year include the monograph award, a solo exhibition at Blue Sky Gallery, and a prestigious four-week artist’s residency at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation’s Captiva Island estate. The Critical Mass Top 50 exhibition will be shown at a super-cool venue (TBA!), and will be curated by Alison Nordström.

The aim of Critical Mass, and all Photolucida programming, is to provide participants with career-building opportunities and to promote the best emerging and mid-career artists working today.

Awards
Although the primary intent of Critical Mass is exposure (which is a benefit to all who enter), we are pleased to also offer awards each year. The awards for Critical Mass 2015 are:

  • Monograph Award – One photographer will be chosen for Photolucida’s prestigious monograph award. A hardbound book of their work will be published, distributed, and shipped to all jurors and photographers in this year’s Critical Mass.
  • Artist Residency Award – One photographer will be chosen for a four-week residency at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation’s Captiva Island (Florida) estate.
  • Solo Show Award – One photographer will be chosen for an exhibition at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland during Portland Photo Month in April, 2016.

Submission Details
Registration (opens on June 15th & closes on July 28th)
$75 ($90 for international submissions due to higher book shipping costs)

Finalists’ Round
The finalists will be announced at the end of August 2015. Photographers selected for the finalists round pay an additional $200. Their work is then sent on to the full panel of 200 jurors.

To enter, download the Entry Guidelines (PDF) to learn how to prepare your submission. Then, visit the Critical Mass registration page to submit your work.”
