|"Orifice" by Shawn Saumell / First place winner - Secrets & Mysteries|
Exciting new feature from L.A. Photo Curator!
Over the past year, the quality of the work submitted for our photography competitions has been so outstanding that it seems only right that they ALL should be seen! All the curators have expressed how hard it was to choose just one first place winner. Hopefully this will help.
Starting today, March 26, 2016, ALL entrants work will be exhibited online in a group on-line exhibition. In keeping with our mission of creating exposure opportunities and PR, we are proud to offer this feature. In addition to your work being seen, there will also be a short artist statement and bio about you plus a link back to your website. We hope this creates a vehicle that can take your work further and be seen by more people.
The curator will still choose one first place winner, one second place winner and three honorable mentions. The first place winner will receive a review by one or more curators including a Q&A about the photographer's work. In addition, their image will be on our home page for a month. Second place and honorable mentions will have their image shown along with thir bio, artist statement, C.V. and a link back to their website.
Current call for entry:
The Figure in the Landscape
The relationship between a figure and its landscape context can be powerful. Landscapes are often presented as pristine places, without human presence. However, figures within landscapes can play dynamic roles as scale elements, protagonists in a narrative, or mysterious presences. Sometimes figures can ask more questions about a place than they can answer. For this exhibition we seek photographs that extend beyond documentation of place to bring a human element into the natural or urban landscape.
L.A. Photo Curator is proud to have Emma Powell as this month's curator!
