ONWARD Compé 2015 International Photography Competition

Project Basho Gallery is currently accepting submissions for ONWARD Compé 2015, its international juried competition for emerging photographers.

Now in its eighth year, Compé has solidified its standing as a highly respected international competition, drawing submissions from across the U.S. and around the globe.

Each year Compé culminates in a group show of framed prints from the selected finalists, with an opening reception at Summit, ONWARD’s annual photography festival in Philadelphia. It seeks to increase the exposure of talented image-makers, create outlets for artists’ work, and present compelling photographs in a cohesive and well-curated exhibition.

ONWARD Compé has an open theme and accepts submissions from any photographer who has never had commercial gallery representation.

Every year ONWARD invites a distinguished photographer to lend a discerning eye to Compé, serving as guest juror. The guest juror – Elinor Carucci – is responsible for choosing 56 noteworthy finalists and ultimately two outstanding grand prize winners from among hundreds of talented competitors.

ONWARD Compé 2015 will result with an exhibition at Project Basho Gallery from March to May 2015, two Juror’s Awards, a Popular Vote Prize and Honorable Mentions.

ONWARD Compé 2015 Entry Fees
