Call for Entries: Leica Women Foto Project | Award
Deadline: Thursday, August 29, 2019 at 11:59:59 PM ET

“As part of the Leica Women Foto Project, Leica Camera USA is seeking three U.S. photographers to receive an award to support a personal project that is relevant to today’s social and political climate. The mission of the Leica Women Foto Project is to educate, encourage and empower photographers to demonstrate the importance and impact of a woman’s point of view. The award serves as a catalyst to reframe how we see, how we think, and how we express our visual narrative.

Applicants will be reviewed on the basis of quality of photography, dedication to the medium of photography, sophistication of project, as expressed through the female perspective with narratives that broaden perspectives, ideas and conversations on today’s social climate.

Prize
Three (3) winners will each receive a cash prize of ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00 USD) payable via check, as well as a one (1)-year loan of a Leica Q2 camera. At the end of the term, the cameras will be passed on to the next three winners of the 2020 award to continue the legacy. A replacement Leica camera will be offered to the initial set of recipients to continue documenting their journey through the lens of a Leica. (See Award Rules here for details.)

Photo entries will be reviewed by a panel of renowned judges including:

  • Karin Kaufmann Art Director & Chief Representative, Leica Galleries International
  • Maggie Steber VII Agency photographer and Guggenheim fellow
  • Elizabeth Avedon Independent curator, photo book and exhibition designer
  • Laura Roumanos Executive producer and co-founder, United Photo Industries
  • Deborah Willis University professor and Chair of the Department of Photography & Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University and author of Envisioning Emancipation: Black Americans and the End of Slavery

Each member of the Panel will individually score each submission using the following criteria: 

  1. Category 1: Quality of Photography 
  2. Category 2: Dedication to the Medium of Photography
  3. Category 3: Sophistication of project

The three (3) entrants with the highest total scores will be declared the recipients of the award. In the event of a tied score resulting in more than three (3) recipients of the award, the entrant with the highest Head Judge’s score will be deemed the recipient of the award. Recipients of the award will be announced on or about October 16, 2019 on www.us.leica-camera.com and on @LeicaCameraUSA on Facebook and Instagram. Must be 21 years or older to participate and reside in the United States.

Submission Guidelines

The 2013 Clarence John Laughlin Award

“The New Orleans Photo Alliance (NOPA) is pleased to announce the names of the 14 finalists for the 2013 Clarence John Laughlin Award.

The Clarence John Laughlin Award was instituted by the New Orleans Photo Alliance in 2010 to support the work of photographers who use the medium as a means of creative expression.  It honors the life and work of Clarence John Laughlin (1905-1985), a New Orleans photographer best known for his surrealist images of the American South.  The Clarence John Laughlin Award grants one $5000 prize annually to a photographer whose work exhibits sustained artistic excellence and creative vision.

Russell Lord, the Freeman Family Curator of Photographs at the New Orleans Museum of Art, is the 2013 juror. The 134 submissions were prescreened by Arthur Roger, of Arthur Roger Gallery, Victoria Ryan, photographer, educator and NOPA Board Member, and Crista Dix of Wallspace Gallery, who narrowed the entries down to 100 portfolios. From these, Mr. Lord selected 14 finalists whose work he will review in print form to select a single winner. The New Orleans Photo Alliance will announce the 2013 CJL Award recipient on October 1, 2013.”
