THE EMERGING PHOTOGRAPHERS COMPETITION
Emerging Photographers is an annual competition that gives photography students, apprentice photographers and those just beginning their careers a unique opportunity to share their vision and talent with the world. Selected photographers will have their images featured in the Emerging Photographers’ portfolio published in Photo Life’s February/March 2016 issue. This competition is open for entries through 11:59 p.m. EST on November 16, 2015.
Photo Program Alumni & Curator Dainesha Nugent-Palache is currently seeking artworks by (queer) emerging artists dealing with themes of identity, nationality, and diaspora to be shown in an exhibition at Xpace Cultural Centre, June 24-Aug. 6, 2016.
The direct focus of this exhibition is the threat of discrimination, violence and imprisonment due to the intersection of one’s queer identity and nationality, with the intent to uncover and expose the often hidden faces of queerness. Existing pieces and works in process, in all mediums will be considered. Works must be ready for exhibition by June 10, 2016.
Deadline: Midnight, Monday January 4, 2016.
