One of the highlights of the recent NY Photo Festival, for me, was the exhibition “HOME FOR GOOD” that was curated by Foto8′s editor Jon Levy. Be sure to visit that link and learn more about the show, and hear interviews with many of the photographers that this great website/blog provides. Images from the show, and hearing the words of the photographers, won’t soon leave my mind or my heart. Their magazine is memorable as well.
I have just noticed that the deadline has been extended to JUNE 15 for the “Second Annual Foto8 Awards and Summer Show” which is being billed as “a photographic award, exhibition and print fair.“
“Whether you are a professional, a student or can appreciate a captured moment in life, now is your chance to be a part of the spectacle. You have the chance to win fantastic prizes – £1500 awarded “Best in Show’ chosen by the panel of judges on the opening night. The second prize, of a top of the range camera system, goes to ‘The People’s Choice’ decided by the public throughout the show.
Over 150 images will be chosen out of thousands of entries from all over the globe to be exhibited covering the entire wall space in the prestigious HOST gallery from 17 July – 31 August. During this time the public will have the opportunity to purchase the original works. The photographers chosen to exhibit will all have an equal chance of selling their images during the exhibition and they will be printed in a Foto8 published exhibition catalogue.“
