Hard to believe its been a full year already since we sponsored and hosted the first Magnum Expression Photography Award. Procrastinators beware, the deadline for submitting your photos for consideration in the 2010 award judging is rapidly approaching. You have one week left. If you have a knack for really strong documentary photography, you don’t want to miss this chance to win $10,000 among other incredible prizes.
The Award was established by Magnum Photos and HP with the goal of raising awareness and inspiring change through projects using photography as an expressive medium. Its mission is to discover and illuminate compelling documentary photography. The Award encourages photographers worldwide to share their documentary
projects. There are no limitations on the subject matter. The judges
will be looking for compelling projects that go beyond the surface
level to provide fresh and engaging perspectives on a chosen subject.
A panel of four Magnum photographers — Jim Goldberg, Martin Parr, Trent Parke, and Mark Power — and one HP Large Format Printing representative will select 20 finalists. One chosen winner will receive a $10,000 grant to support the continuation of his/her work, HP’s Large Format Designjet Z3200 Photo printer for fine art printing, archival pigment inks, fine art paper and additional prizes from contributing partners Blurb and PhotoShelter. Two honorable mentions and the remaining 17 finalists will also receive awards to support and encourage their photographic work. Participation is at no cost and photographers worldwide are encouraged to submit.
We love supporting projects like this, which give us a chance to welcome new photographers into the PhotoShelter community, as well as gives our members a chance to get their work recognized.
