Winners announced: Lens Culture International Exposure Awards

The winners have been announced!  I was pleased to have been a part of the jury team for this competition, reviewing all the work submitted.  Along with my fellow judges, results were compiled by Jim Casper at Lens Culture and the winners are as follows.  From the Lens Culture website:

“We’re thrilled to announce the winners of the 2010 Lens Culture International Exposure Awards. For the judges, the process of looking critically at almost 6,500 photographs submitted by photographers from 47 countries was at once daunting and exhilarating.

The range of work is remarkable. It varies richly in subject matter, genre, and styles of technological and artistic approaches. Perhaps what was most pleasantly surprising about reviewing all of these photographs, for me, was the chance to discover so many multifaceted and unusual ways that people are using photography to tell an important story, or to explore an emotion, take a wild flight of imagination, dig a bit deeper into a psychological puzzle, capture a moment or an age or a culture, or to play with an idea.

All of the jurors were eager to see what “bubbled to the top” through the democratic judging process. Indeed, it is an eclectic mix, and a pleasure to discover the kinds of things that captivated each of us. We hope you will enjoy the winning portfolios and single photographs as they are revealed over the next weeks here in Lens Culture. Starting in early 2011, these award-winning works will comprise group exhibitions at galleries in Paris, San Francisco and New York.
