We are pleased to offer our new Working Artist Photography Award, a monthly one-time art purchase award dedicated solely to photography and photo-based artwork. This award works in tandem with our monthly general discipline Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award. The Working Artist Photography Award is available to all domestic and international photographers and photo-based artists working in all traditional and non-traditional photography formats, genres and styles. Work accepted for review includes but is not limited to film, digital photography, digitally manipulated photography, glitch, straight and abstract photography, landscape, still life, fashion, documentary, street, black and white, color, and all methods concerning the finished photographic print. If selected as our winner, we ask that the award recipient be willing to exchange one of their original works or smaller series of original works for inclusion in our collection, in return for our award. Work considered by the artist as of equal value, and available for acquisition can be negotiated upon receipt of the award. We do pay the artist's shipping costs. Please send us your best work for review. If you are interested in being considered for our award, please either: send us your website, or, send us 5 digital images/files of recent work, (total mail size no larger than 2 MB please) -- to us via email. No written proposals or CV's are required unless the artist would like to include them.
