Deadline August 16th: Sixth Annual Alternative Processes Competition, Soho Photo

From the Soho Photo website:

Annual Soho Photo Alternative Process Competition.
Download 2010 Prospectus

Soho Photo initiated its Annual Alternative Processes Competition in 2005 with the objective of recognizing the achievements of those photographers who continue to craft their images the way photographers have done since the beginning of the medium. These alternative processes include (but are not limited to) albumen, cyanotype, Van Dyke Brown, platinum/palladium, gum bichromate, bromoil, salt print, ambrotype, tintype, image transfer and Ziatype. 19th Century photographic processes dominate this genre, however some modern methods have joined the accepted ranks. Alternative photography results in the creation of one-of-a-kind handmade images, with the imprint of each photographer’s special individuality and artistry.

In previous competitions, jurors have included John Stevenson, Christopher James, Tricia Rosenkilde and Dan Estabrook.  The juror for 2009′s  competition was Robert A. Schaefer Jr. whose picks resulted in a month-long show featuring the winning photographs of 44 photographers from all over the United States. The winners’ list from that competition is available, 2009 winners.

Soho Photo’s 6th Annual Alternative Competition Show is scheduled for November 2 to 27, 2010.

Soho Photo Gallery is pleased to welcome as the distinguished jurors for this year’s competition, France Scully Osterman and Mark Osterman, who are uniquely qualified to jury the SOHO PHOTO Annual Alternative Processes Competition. They are both fine art photographers and scholars specializing in early photographic processes, most notably, wet-plate collodion. Mark has researched, practiced and taught historic processes for well over 20 years and is currently process historian at George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film. France is an artist, writer, and educator at Scully & Osterman Studio and guest scholar at Eastman House.

Submissions should arrive no later than August 16, 2010. See prospectus for submission details.
