Deadline EXTENDED until July 19th: Critical Mass 2019

Call for Entries: Critical Mass 2019
EXTENDED! Deadline: FRIDAY July 19, 2019 (12:00 noon, PDT)
Submission fee is $75 for 7-10 images

“The aim of Critical Mass is to provide participants with career-building opportunities and to promote the best emerging and mid-career artists working today. Critical Mass is about exposure, connection, and community – as well as these notable awards!

Critical Mass began as a way to help photographers get their work into the conversation. In-person portfolio review events are a bigger expense and time commitment. We wanted to create an online platform that would make it easier and more efficient for photographers to promote their work to a wide selection of professionals in the field.

Critical Mass gets photographers’ work in front of 200 top museum curators, gallerists, publishers, editors, and media producers. That’s a lot of eyes. As an individual photographer, it’s difficult to make connections with professionals at this level – much less with 200 of them. In Critical Mass, photographers (from anywhere) submit a 10-image portfolio. The 200 finalists who proceed past the first, pre-screening round then have their work reviewed and voted on by the full panel of 200 jurors. It’s an unprecedented way to get your work in front of the right people!

Critical Mass 2019 awards include:

  • Blue Sky Solo Show Award
  • Robert Rauschenberg Residency Award
  • Publication in GUP International Photography Magazine
  • Critical Mass TOP 50 Exhibition at the Center for Photographic Art (Carmel, California – curated by Elizabeth Avedon)

Photolucida is pleased to award scholarships to Critical Mass to MFA program photography students – are you a faculty member with a nomination? Let us know by June 24th!

Submission Details

Pre-screening Round
Every submission is juried by our Pre-Screening Panel, a group of 25-30 museum curators, gallerists, publishers and more. Through this four-week process, the 200 finalists are announced and move on to the next round of jurying.

Finalists’ Round
Photographers selected for the finalists round pay an additional $200. Their work is then sent on to the full panel of 200 jurors. All finalists receive a copy of GUP #63, which highlights the work of a number of Critical Mass Finalists.

Jurors have the option of leaving comments for photographers.”
