Lens Culture
International Exposure Awards
Deadline: Sunday, September 16, 2012

“Lens Culture International Exposure Awards discover, reward, and promote talented, new, emerging and established photographers and multimedia creators from around the world.

We’re looking for exciting work from every continent, and from diverse points of view: documentary, fine art, nature, photojournalism, activism, street photography, sports, fashion, poetic, personal, abstract and human.

This year’s jurors are: Alison Nordström, Felix Hoffmann, James Estrin, Jean-Jacques Viau, Jim Casper, Joanne Junga Yang, and Lars Boering.  To read their bios click here.

Portfolio Awards
Submit 5 to 15 photographic images that work well together as a group — thematically, aesthetically, as a story, or simply as a range of your photographic talent.

Portfolios from all genres and categories will be considered, including, but not limited to: documentary / photojournalism / fine art / conceptual / fashion / cinematic / fiction / storytelling / nature / portraits / alternative processes / iPhone / other.

Edit your selections carefully, since this category will be judged on the strength of the group of photographs as a whole, and not as individual photographs. Entry fee: $75.

Single Image Awards
Often, a single powerful photograph captures our attention as important, artistic, meaningful, and memorable. A great photo can stand on its own, demonstrating a remarkable level of visual perception, sensitivity, and creativity.

Photographs from all genres and categories will be considered, including, but not limited to: documentary / photojournalism / fine art / conceptual / fashion / cinematic / fiction / storytelling / nature / portraits / alternative processes / iPhone / other.

Entry fees: $35 to enter one single image, or $55 to enter 2 to 5 single images.

Multimedia Awards
Presentations that combine photography, video, graphics and sound are becoming prominent headline features in the world of social networking, activism, fine art, and online news. Photographers are taking more and more control over how their work is edited, produced and presented. And we want to discover who is creating the most engaging multimedia projects today.

Multimedia from all genres and categories will be considered, including, but not limited to: documentary / photojournalism / fine art / conceptual / cinematic / music / fiction / storytelling / nature / other.

Maximum length should be 8-10 minutes, but shorter is fine, too. If your full-length multimedia piece is longer than 10 minutes, please submit an edit, or a trailer or teaser of 10 minutes or shorter. You can also submit one still image plus a link to your multimedia on your own website. The link should be part of your artist’s statement. Winners will be shown in their full original length. Entry fee: $55.”

Artist Talk by David Hilliard
Friday, January 20, 2012 at 7:30 pm
Admission: $10 general | $5 students with ID

“I continually aspire to represent the spaces we inhabit, relationships we create, and the objects with which we surround ourselves. I hope the messages the photographs deliver speak to the personal as well as the universal experience. I find the enduring power and the sheer ability of a photograph to express a thought, a moment, or an idea, to be the most powerful expression of myself, both as an artist, and as an individual.” —David Hilliard
