Deadline March 7th: “Emerging Photographer” Summer 2016 Issue

Emerging Photographer
Call for Submissions: Summer 2016 Issue

Deadline: Monday, March 7, 2016
Fee: $20 per series (3-10 images)

Emerging Photographer is a submission-based magazine, showcasing the work of up-and-coming photographers with around five years or less of professional experience. Submissions are now open for the Summer 2016 issue.

We are looking for photographers with a fresh perspective, compelling imagery and an insatiable drive to make an impact within the photography community. The featured photographers will be selected by the editors of Emerging Photographer, PDN and Rf, and their work will appear in the print issue and in a digital edition on issuu.com.

Emerging Photographer is distributed to art buyers, photo editors and creative directors. It has also been distributed at various galleries, Photo LA, PDN‘s 30 events and MOPLA, and exhibited at a pop-up exhibition at MOPLA last summer. This issue, select photographers will have the opportunity to sell prints of their work through CoEdit Collection, an online gallery and space for artists to share their images and ideas with a larger audience. We are always looking for new opportunities for the next group of selected photographers.

Some of the previous jurors have been:  Carol Nagar, Martin Parr, Gilles Peress, Eugene Richards, Maggie Steber, Fred Ritchin, Bruce Gilden, David Griffin, John Gossage , Susan Meiselas, and James Nachtwey…For 2011 an equally astute set of jurors will be selected and announced before the deadline date.”
