Deadline July 25th: Critical Mass 2010 Competition

From the PhotoLucida website:

Critical Mass images

CM08 book award winners Andy Freeberg, Céline Clanet, and Priya Kambli — books now published!

“Critical Mass 2010 is now open for registration!

Deadline to enter work is July 25. Please read page in full for information, and click on the link below to register.

Click here to see the list of jurors.
Click here to register!

What Is Critical Mass?

The aim of Critical Mass, and all Photolucida programming, is to provide participants with career-building opportunities and to promote the best emerging and mid-career artists working today.

Critical Mass is a program about exposure and community. The idea is simple—photographers (from anywhere) submit a 10 image portfolio for $75. This work then gets pre-screened by a committee of approximately 20 great jurors and from there, 175 top Finalists are determined. These top Finalists then pay an additional submission fee ($200) and their work goes on to a jury of approximately 200 of the world’s best curators, editors, and other professionals who have agreed to view and vote on these Finalists. From these votes, at least one photographer is chosen to receive a book award and once the monograph is published, everyone who enters and reviews will receive a copy of the book(s).

We are pleased to continue to give scholarships to pre-selected photographers by geographical region. In previous years, Photolucida gave scholarships to photographers from Poland, Mexico, and Italy. This year, the lucky country is The Netherlands!

What to expect?

As an entrant to Critical Mass, you shouldn’t necessarily expect feedback from the jurors unless they want to contact you about doing something with your work. Jurors are given the opportunity and encouraged to provide written feedback, but we can’t guarantee anything other than:

  • Everyone who enters will receive a copy of the Book Award Winner’s monograph(s).
  • Everyone who enters will receive a CD containing all of the submitted work.
  • Everyone who enters will have their work seen, and voted on, by the Pre-Screening committee.
  • Those who continue on in the top 175 Finalists will have their work seen, and voted on, by over 200 jurors.

Click here for Critical Mass Success Stories.

Book Awards!

Photolucida will publish a monograph for at least one photographer from among the top-scoring finalists. The book award is reserved for artists without a previously published monograph. Photographers with self-published books are still eligible for the book award. If you already have a monograph, you still have over 200 great reasons to participate in Critical Mass!

CM 2009 Winners – Alejandro Cartagena, Birthe Pointek (in production)
CM 2008 Winners – Andy Freeberg, Céline Clanet, Priya Kambli
CM 2007 Winners – Joni Sternbach, Peter van Agtmael
CM 2006 Winners – Camille Seaman, Donald Weber, Amy Stein
CM 2005 Winners – Hiroshi Watanabe, Louie Palu, Sage Sohier
Click here to see!

Other Awards!

This year, in addition to the book award, Photolucida is pleased to partner with Blue Sky in offering a solo show to one of the Critical Mass Finalists. Founded in 1975 as the Oregon Center for the Photographic Arts, Blue Sky is one of the leading venues exhibiting contemporary photography in the United States.

Also this year, Photolucida is partnering with Newspace Center for Photography to produce a Critical Mass Top 50 Exhibit. Newspace is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting photographic education, with a wonderful exhibition space.

Both exhibits will take place in April 2011, coinciding with Photolucida’s Reviews.

Also, in conjunction with photo-eye, three of the Top 50 photographers will receive complimentary VisualServer websites and portfolios on photo-eye’s Photographer’s Showcase for one year.

Photolucida will also award five free spots in our April 2011 Portfolio Reviews! These awards will go to five randomly selected photographers in the Finalist group. For more information on our quick-to-sell-out biennial event, click here!

Procedure

Critical Mass has a two-part submission process.

  1. First you pay a $75 registration fee to upload your images and text. We will then format your work and distribute the pages to the pre-screeners for scoring. The 2010 Pre-Screening committee comprises the following people (as of June 30):
    • Leslie K. Brown, Independent Curator

In addition to seeing the work during the online process, jurors will also be sent a CD of the Finalists’ work, which serves as a good reference tool in a multitude of ways.

From the e-announcement:

The Berenice Abbott Prize

Entry Deadline: July 17, 2010

The Julia Dean Photo Workshops is pleased to announce The 2010 Berenice Abbott Prize for an Emerging Photographer, an international competition.  One person is selected for this prize and is given a one-person, all expenses paid, exhibition at an LA gallery (location and date TBA), an exhibition book, a Canon EOS 50D/ EF 28-135 Kit, plus a spread of the winning work in Rangefinder magazine. The winner will also receive a photograph of Berenice Abbott taken by Hank O’Neal.

Juried by David Fahey of Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles.

Berenice Abbott was a photographer of great accomplishment. She began her career as an assistant to Man Ray and became known mostly for her documentary work of New York City in the 1930s. Berenice was also a portrait photographer, an educator, an inventor, and a writer. She believed that all photographers should have personal projects that they are passionate about, no matter what the subject matter. This award was created by Julia Dean to honor her teacher and friend.

What constitutes an Emerging Photographer? An emerging photographer does not mean a young photographer, though a young photographer can certainly enter. Rather, it means that you have an accomplished body of work that has not yet been exhibited or published widely.

Criteria & Scope: Whether a fine art photographer or documentary photographer, the work submitted for this contest should reflect a cohesive body of work.

Sponsored by: A&I Photographic and Digital Services; Canon USA; Universal Art Gallery; The Julia Dean Photo Workshops

Entry fee (for up to 25 images): $75
