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:
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
Greg Pond, Photo Editor, Fortune Magazine
