American Photography 24: Deadline January 25th

American Illustration and American Photography are important annual competitions that have are juried by key industry professionals, and the titles produced to feature selected works are designed by the best in the business. Read industry testimonials here; I love how Lloyd Ziff sums it up from his perspective: “First as an art director and now as a photographer, I find American Photography invaluable. The quality of the judging, the design — and most importantly, of the work — sets and meets the highest of standards. When my work is selected, I’m elated; when it’s not, I work harder.”

The Jury for last year’s American Photography 23 consisted of:

Kathy Ryan, Photo Editor, The New York Times Magazine, JURY CHAIR

Stephen Frailey, Chair, Photography Department, Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program, School of Visual Arts

David Harris, Design Director, Vanity Fair Magazine

Lesley A. Martin, Executive Editor, Aperture Foundation

Stephen Mayes, COO Image Source (Americas), Secretary, World Press Photo

Greg Pond, Photo Editor, Fortune Magazine
