THE 2018 ARNOLD NEWMAN PRIZE FOR NEW DIRECTIONS IN PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAITURE

CALL FOR ENTRIES NOW OPEN, June 12, 2017 – September 15, 2017 (at 11:59pm EST)

Arnold Newman had an insatiable fascination with people and the physical world around him. In his work, he constantly explored the boundaries of portraiture and embodied the spirit of artistic innovation. He was also a passionate teacher–he taught at Maine Media Workshops + College every summer for over 30 years, inspiring hundreds of artists and sharing wisdom like, “we make photographs with our hearts and with our minds.” In honor of Arnold’s legacy as both a photographer and mentor, The Arnold Newman Prize for New Directions in Photographic Portraiture recognizes excellence in a new generation of photographers by awarding $20,000 to a photographer whose work demonstrates a compelling new vision in the genre of portraiture. The prize, the second largest in the United States, is designed to assist the winner in continuing the pursuit of their work and to serve as a launching pad for the next phase of their careers.

Established in 2009 by the Arnold and Augusta Newman Foundation, the prize is generously funded by the Foundation and proudly administered by Maine Media Workshops + College.

1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition
Hit Me With Your Best Shot

This month at 1650 we venture into the heart and soul of what makes a great photograph as we pull down the guardrails and fences and let the true artist within you run wild. This month, there are no rules, there are no ranks and we pull no punches as 1650 opens it’s juried competition to every photographer’s own personal vision; a show comprised of each artist’s artist’s best or favorite work. The rules are simple: there are no rules, there is no theme except that you enter whatever work you like. All photos don’t fit neatly into pre-conceived categories, and this month we all have a chance to prove it. So get out your contact sheets and hard drives, fire up your Lightroom catalogs and make a pile of 5 or 10 of your favorite photos and SEND THEM IN! We don’t care if they are of horses, oil derricks, or your Auntie Em! Rocks, bugs, sunsets? SEND ‘EM IN!!! Forest fires, rain forests or an eclipse of the sun? SEND THEM IN!!! This month at 1650, we search for the personal best in the dusty back pages of photographers of all ages and areas — amateur or pro, analog or digital, serious or on a lark; because we all have at least a few good shots inside us — so hit us with your best shots!!

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos to be included in the Hit Me With Your Best Shot group photography exhibition at 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles.

There is an entry fee of $35 for up to 5 images. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.

We offer free matting and framing for accepted photographs that fit our pre-cut mat sizes for the duration of the exhibition. We have a variety of frames and mats to choose from.

We will also print your photo for a nominal fee if you are accepted into the show and would prefer not to mail a print.

Selected artists may choose to offer their work for sale. The gallery retains 50% sales commission.

AWARDS: Best In Show, 2nd Place and 3rd Place will be awarded and posted online after the show opening. Award winning photos will be featured on the show page and Best In Show winners will have a small portfolio of their work (up to 10 images) featured in our 1650 Spotlight gallery of photographic excellence.

All Awards winners will also be featured in our 1650 Gallery newsletter, which is broadcast via email to our mailing list. Getting the word out about artists we’re excited about helps you do more great work, helps us show more great work, and helps keep the often insular world of fine art photography more diverse and vibrant.

International Juried Photography Exhibition

Submission Deadline: Sunday, October 1st, 2017

International Juried Photography Exhibition Submission Deadline: Sunday, October 1st, 2017 ENTER The Decisive Moment

The Decisive Moment

Theme | The Decisive Moment.

Twentieth century French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson described the decisive moment as ‘the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.”

While the concept of the decisive moment is often associated with dynamic, synchronic activity captured in an instant – it may just as well apply to the photographic image that records a thoughtful moment of fleeting solitude or calm. Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore this intersection of form, function and significance. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Lopamudra was fascinated by the world of photography ever since she was a child but never thought of taking it up seriously until she was gifted a Canon 5D Mark II as recently as 2010. It changed the world around her. She is particularly captivated by the diversity of Indian culture and how different it can be from Kashmir to Kanyakumari! Her photographs have been accepted and exhibited by International Salons. She has been awarded the honour of AFIAP by the Federation Internationale de l’Art Photographique. Her works have also been published in numerous Travel magazines.
