Silver Eye Center for Photography has announced the call for entries for Fellowship 14, its international photography competition.
Now in its 14th year, this competition recognises both rising talent and established photographers.
You may submit up to ten images from a cohesive, exhibition-ready body of work created within the past three years. Award recipients will be selected by the juror on the basis of exceptional, distinctive talent as evidenced by the strength of their submitted portfolios. The juror is especially interested in seeing portfolios with a strong narrative thrust and highly individual, original points of view.
The deadline for entries is Monday 21 October 2013, 11:59:59 pm EST.
This year’s judge is Linda Benedict-Jones, Curator of Photography, Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA.
One (1) International Award Winner receives a solo exhibition at Silver Eye opening late-January 2014; $3,000 cash prize; an online gallery on Silver Eye’s website (with link to artist website); and media outreach and promotion.
One (1) Keystone Award Winner, reserved for a Pennsylvania artist, receives a spotlight exhibition in late-January 2014; $1,000 cash prize; an online gallery on Silver Eye’s website (with link to artist website); and media outreach and promotion.
Five (5) Judges’ Commendation Winners will be named on Silver Eye’s website and press releases.
What to Enter
The submission you are entering is comprised of three individual items: 1) a one-page Artist’s Statement in PDF format; 2) your biography or CV in PDF format, and 3) your work sample.
You may submit up to ten (10) images from a cohesive, exhibition-ready body of work created within the past three years. Or, if from an ongoing project, the portfolio must include images created within the past three years.
Submitted work may not have been previously exhibited at Silver Eye or in the Greater Pittsburgh region.
For the best image quality and fast upload, image files must be no larger than 1,500 pixels wide, and saved as a .JPG size 8.
How to Enter
Submissions will be accepted via Silver Eye’s website.
$15 for current Silver Eye members at the $40 level and above, with membership valid through January 31, 2014.
$60 for non-Silver Eye members.
Those interested in becoming a member or renewing their membership at the time of submission may do so at the $40 membership level and then pay an additional $15 to submit—a $5 savings, for a total cost of $55.
