LensCulture, through its Emerging Talent Awards 2014 competition is seeking to award talented unknown photographers around the world — from all cultures, all points of view, with no age limit.
The Competition is open to all genres of photography, with no separate category for students as all entries are treated equally, even though students still get a discounted entry fee.
An international jury of experts will choose fifty (50) Emerging Talents for 2014, with five (5) of them receiving grants of $2,000 each. The winning photographs may also be included in traveling group gallery exhibitions and/or screenings and projections at arts institutions and festivals worldwide.
Entrants are invited to submit up to 10 photographs that work well together as a series — either as a visual narrative, or images that work well together in theme or style. Winners will be judged on the strength of their submissions as unified groups of photos, not as individual photographs.
The organizers define “emerging” photographer as anyone who has not yet received significant international recognition.
