Call for Submissions: Fourth Annual New York Portfolio Reviews
Deadline: Thursday, February 4, 2016 at 11:59 PM EDT
Submission Fee: NONE
“Applications are now open for the Fourth Annual New York Portfolio Review, sponsored by the New York Times Lens blog and the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism. And it’s free — because we think that it should be the quality of the work that matters, not how much money you have.
This will be an opportunity for people in the photographic community to meet, trade ideas, help each other — and have fun.
Saturday, April 2, will be for all photographers 21 and older. Each participant will receive six private critiques. Sunday, April 3, will be solely for photographers 18 to 27 and will consist of at least four private critiques for each participant, as well as workshops on how to best present, promote and publish your photographs. We will screen all applicants and choose 100 participants for Saturday and 50 for Sunday. All kinds of photographic work — from fine art to photojournalism — are encouraged.
To enter, submit no more than 20 photos total, from one or two projects. The files should be jpegs, 1200 pixels across and 72 D.P.I. We will inform those who are accepted by March 1st.
Please note: Photographers who attended last year’s review are not eligible to apply this year. Photographers who attended two or three years ago can apply for this year’s review, but they must submit new work and expectations will be higher.”

“Street Photography 2015 was established to recognize a segment of photography that is often explored historically but rarely recognized as an important catalog of social currency and circumstance.
The competition will result in a photo book that honors the tradition of street photography in today’s world. Being published in a book is a benchmark for many in their photographic career. It is a medium through which the public can gain a nuanced understanding of the artists’ work and a collective theme, and the book’s physical presence allows it to be added to longstanding collections of such work.
Mobil Phone, Social Circumstance, Portrait / People, Street Fashion, Urban Landscape, Urban Culture, Day / Night.”

Deadline October 7th: Humble Arts Foundation Call for Entries: “Tough Turf: New Directions in Street Photography”
“For the past 8 years, Humble Arts Foundation has been championing what’s “new” in Art Photography. At times rivaling commercial aspirations, we’re interested in work that makes us twitch and keeps us excited about the future of Photography.
For the launch of our new site and group show 39, we’re producing an online exhibition of street photography made since 2000 that encourages us to rethink the genre entirely. How have today’s photographers brought the traditions of Cartier Bresson, Diane Arbus, Helen Levitt and countless others into the 21st Century? Have smart-phones, instagram and digital technology changed the nature of the “Decisive Moment?”
- Five (5) images
- 1000 pixels wide (72dpi, sRGB)
- 50 to 100-word work statement
