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. We are excited to host the prize for a second year and to announce that the 2018 Call for Entries is open from June 12, 2017 to September 15, 2017 (at 11:59pm EST)
