Adena Giamberdino's Thesis Exhibition of large-scale digital prints, food(e)scapes, opens this Friday, May 8th at Alexander Hall from 6-8 pm.
DEADLINE: Friday, May 16, 2009, 12:00 noon
In the back of the book, we feature a student photo in a bit called "Behind the Shot".
In addition, the student writes a quick blurb about how the image was captured, and shot specs.
It's a great opportunity for student exposure. The SBG has a print run of around 10,000. There's no compensation, other than publicity trade out. We feature the student's work, plug the school and the student's website.
Ideally, we're looking for something narrative. How was this image captured? By chance? Is there a quirky or odd story behind or in front of the image? Feel free to also surprise us, and throw in a curve ball
that you think might "fit".
As far as what's off limits - nudity. B&H is a fairly conservative organization, so the art director requested something family friendly.
For submission guidelines, please contact J.P. Reglado at

The 2009 Berenice Abbott Prize
for an Emerging Photographer
Deadline: July 17, 2009
The Julia Dean Photo Workshops is pleased to announce The 2009 Berenice Abbott Prize for an Emerging Photographer. Deadline: July 17, 2009. One person is selected for this prize and is given a one-person, all expenses paid, exhibition at the Julia Dean Gallery in Venice Beach, California, on October 17, 2009, plus a Canon EOS50D/E 28-135 Kit.
This year’s juror is Tim Wride, who was Curator of the Department of Photographs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for 14 years, before becoming the founding Executive Director of No Strings Foundation, a Los Angeles-based non–profit that provides individual artist grants to U.S. photographers.
Berenice Abbott was a photographer of great accomplishment. Known mostly for her documentary work of New York City in the 1930s, Berenice was also a portrait photographer, an educator, an inventor, and a writer. She believed that all photographers should have personal projects that they are passionate about, not matter what the subject matter. This award is in her honor.
What constitutes an Emerging Photographer?
An emerging photographer does not mean a young photographer, though a young photographer can certainly enter. Rather, it means that you have an accomplished body of work that has not yet been exhibited or published widely.
Criteria & Scope
Whether a fine art photographer or documentary photographer, the work submitted for this contest should reflect a cohesive body of work.
