LOVE : An International Photography Competition

The Focus Project asks participants to contribute images pertaining to a selected theme, in an effort to identify emerging photographic talent and to create a collective narrative reflecting all our voices and visions.

You are invited you to share your most powerful images that convey, represent or capture the essence of love. It is the deepest emotion we know and welcome you to submit your best work for a chance at world-wide exposure.

$5,000 + New York City Exhibition + World-Wide Acclaim – The Focus Project is open to all photographers around the world!

Objective

The Focus Project is excited to announce the first theme to launch this collaborative project: LOVE

You can submit photos of any style that reflect what you love and honor in your life. These can be portraits of your friends and family, photos you’ve taken of those you honor and respect, images of people you’ve met on your travels, self-portraits, or any image that shows who you honor and LOVE.

Prizes

One selected photographer will be awarded the Grand Prize of a gallery reception in Manhattan, a $5,000 cash grant, your own archival quality photography book, airfare and shipping to New York City, an annual subscription to JPG Magazine, an online feature published by JPG Magazine, and an online feature published by Artists Wanted promoting you and your photography world-wide.
