January 19th, Charleston, SC: Opening Reception “Defining Focus: Views of the Coast”

City Gallery at Waterfront Park 
Opening Reception: Defining Focus: Views of the Coast
Saturday, January 19, 2013, 5:00-7:00 pm
Free and open to the public.

Defining Focus combines the aerial photography of Yve Assad and the macro photography of David Batchelder to examine the Lowcountry shoreline. These images show a world that is both familiar and otherworldly. Assad and Batchelder are able to capture the flow, light, and texture of the shore in each of their photographs, offering unique and engaging vantage points. Both are able to challenge the eye by creating pieces that demand interpretation.

Batchelder will host a lecture at the gallery February 23rd at 3 p.m.”

This exhibition will be on view until March 3, 2013.

Paris Photo | Aperture Foundation
PhotoBook Awards 2012
Deadline: Monday, September 10, 2012

Paris Photo and Aperture Foundation announce The Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards, celebrating the book’s contribution to the evolving narrative of photography.

 The Awards will focus on two major categories: First PhotoBook and PhotoBook of the Year. A pre-selected shortlist of thirty titles will be profiled in The PhotoBook Review; will be exhibited at Paris Photo at the Grand Palais and at Aperture Gallery in New York; and will tour to other venues, to be determined. The initial selection will be made by Phillip Block, Deputy Director of Programs and Director of Education at International Center of Photography; Chris Boot, Executive Director of Aperture Foundation; Lesley Martin, Publisher, Aperture Foundation; Julien Frydman, Director of Paris Photo; James Wellford, senior international photo editor at Newsweek magazine.

A final jury in Paris, including Els Barents, Director of the Huis Marseille Museum of Photography; Roxana Marcoci, Curator of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art, New York and Curator of the Paris Photo 2012 Platform; Edward Robinson, LACMA associate curator of photography; Thomas Seelig, Curator of the Fotomuseum Winterthur, will select the winners for both prizes, which will be revealed at the opening of Paris Photo on November 14, 2012.

First PhotoBook
A $10,000 prize will be awarded to the photographer/artist* whose first photobook is deemed by an independent jury to be best of the year.

Criteria for Eligibility

  • A book in which the dominant content is photography, produced in physical form, and distributed either for purchase or free of charge.
  • A book which is the first by the given photographer/artist is eligible for entry, whether a first self-published book, a first limited-edition book, a first gallery-published collection, a first book made available by print-on-demand, or a first book published by a publisher for release in the book trade. A first book published by an established publisher is eligible for entry even if the photographer/artist previously released a self-published book or a limited-edition book for distribution outside the trade. However, once a photographer/artist has had a book published by a mainstream publisher in the book trade, a subsequent book (whether self-published or not) is not eligible for entry.
  • May be released by a publisher (in a trade or limited edition) or self-published.
  • First books eligible for entry include those produced via print-on-demand.
  • A book released by a publisher is eligible if it is the first trade book by the given photographer/artist, even if an earlier limited-edition or self published book has previously been made available by that artist/photographer.
  • Books must be produced or published between September 1, 2011, and September 8, 2012. Books produced before September 8, 2012, but not due for release or publication until a later date in 2012, are also eligible.

PhotoBook of the Year
The PhotoBook of the Year Prize will be awarded to the photographer/artist*, and publisher responsible, whose book is deemed by an independent jury to be the best of the year.

Criteria for Eligibility

  • A book in which the dominant content is photography, produced in physical form, and published in an edition of no less than one hundred copies.
  • Books must be produced or published between September 1, 2011, and September 8, 2012. Books produced before September 8, 2012, but not due for release or publication until a later date in 2012, are also eligible for entry.

*Books by or featuring the work of more than one photographer/artist are eligible in both categories.

Entry Fee
First PhotoBook: $30 per book
PhotoBook of the Year: $60 for first entry from a given publisher, $30 for each subsequent entry from the same publisher”

Deadline September 15th: CDS/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography

CDS/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography
Deadline: Saturday, September 15, 2012
Entry Fee: $65

“American and Canadian photographers who pursue work of creative or social importance have too few opportunities for support and recognition. This is especially true when photographers are engaged in personal or in-depth projects that do not have direct commercial appeal. While there are other sources for grants and fellowships in photography, the chance to see a body of work in print, as a coherent book-length work, is rare. Concerned about this problem and recognizing their shared interests, the Honickman Foundation and the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University came together to create this important biennial book-publication prize.

Winners of the CDS/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography receive a grant of $3,000, publication of a book of photography, and inclusion in a website devoted to presenting the work of the prizewinners. The winner will also be given a solo exhibit at the Center for Documentary Studies and the photographs will then be placed in the Archive of Documentary Arts in Duke University’s Rubenstein Library.

Deborah Willis is the final judge of the sixth biennial CDS/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography competition.

Submission Guidelines
Submissions are accepted online at http://fbp.slideroom.com.

  • 40 photographs in digital format (jpeg/jpg) drawn from an ongoing or recently completed project, which represent a coherent body of work suitable for publication. At least twenty of these images must have been made within the last three years (from 2009 on). Those who have submitted work in a previous competition should be sure to include at least twenty new images in their application. Please label each scan with title and caption information in fields provided.
  • 40 captions in pdf or doc format. In addition to labeling each scan, provide a numbered list with title and/or caption for all 40 images in one document; be sure to include where and when the picture was made.
  • 1-page artist’s statement in pdf or doc format. Provide context for the forty images, describe larger body of work, including how long project has been in progress, and how the photographs constitute a potential book.
  • 1-page biography or CV in pdf or doc format
  • $65 entry fee

The prize is open to American and Canadian citizens (and residents of the U.S. and Canada for at least fifteen years) of any age, who have yet to publish a book-length work—a publication that focuses solely on the photographer’s work, contains more than thirty of the photographer’s images, and is sold through conventional book distribution channels. (A photographer’s inclusion in an anthology or group catalog does not affect eligibility.) Photographers who have self-published or printed on-demand books of more than sixty pages that are promoted and sold on the Internet as books, or have published limited-edition chapbooks or exhibit catalogs of more than sixty pages, are not eligible for the award.”
