Now in its 12th year, this juried competition identifies and recognizes both rising talent and established photographers from all corners of the globe and from the state of Pennsylvania. In 2012, the first prize International Award is $3,000 and a solo exhibition at Silver Eye Center for Photography. The $1,000 Keystone Award is open to any eligible photographer currently living and/or working in the state of Pennsylvania. The jurors will also select up to five artists for Commendation Awards.
