Yesterday’s New York Times had an article on the March programming on the Sundance Channel that I posted hear earlier (with full schedule). Be sure to check out this story and the clips from several films that you can link to view.
Special thanks to Jason Christian for telling me about (and updating me on) this fantastic schedule of films we can watch in our own homes!
Photographer Michelle Bates will be speaking at Soho Photo Gallery, 15 White Street in SoHo in conjuction with the Krappy Kamera show (she is the first-place winner). Says Michelle: “This will be a presentation of some of my work, photos by several other toy camera photographers, and a general romp through the word of plastic camera photography – fun! Please tell anyone who might be interested in my talk, and buying signed copies of my book.”
The exhibition opens on TUESDAY, March 4th from 6-8 p.m. and you can download a PDF with the list of winners at www.krappykamera.com
From the competition website:
Deadline: March 11, 2008
“Enter the most prestigious competition for creativity in photography, the 49th annual Communication Arts Photography Competition. Any photograph first printed or produced between March 14, 2007 and March 11, 2008 is eligible. Selected by a nationally representative jury of distinguished designers, art directors and photographers, the winning entries will be published in the August 2008 Photography Annual. Over 70,000 copies of the Photography Annual will be distributed worldwide, assuring important exposure to the creators of this outstanding work. As a service to art directors, designers and art buyers, a comprehensive index will carry addresses and telephone numbers of the photographers represented.”
I encourage all of you are interested in having your work seen by art directors, designers, photo editors and more to apply; I love seeing the work that is accepted into the “Unpublished” section – often the first time I see the newest personal work of photographers, known or unknown to me. I also appreciate that the judging is done by committee, in person, rather than online, remotely. Judges are announced at the time of publication of this special issue of the magazine, and in the past there has been a wide mix of individuals representing multiple markets. Good luck! I can tell you being accepted in this competition has opened the door to new markets for many photographers.
