November 13th: Deadline Project Basho’s Onward 10

November 13th is the deadline for Project Basho’s Onward 10

From the website:

Project Basho is pleased to announce ONWARD ‘10, an annual juried photography competition exclusively featuring the work of new and emerging photographers with unique vision and talent. The theme for ONWARD is open, and any photographic medium from historical processes, traditional silver prints, chromogenic prints to digital prints can be submitted for consideration. Debbie Fleming Caffery, noted documentary photographer and Guggenheim Fellow, will judge this year’s competition. Please visit the ‘This Year’s Juror’ section for more information.

Selected work will be featured in a group exhibition at Project Basho Gallery in February and March 2010 as well as in Project Basho’s online gallery. Special recognition will be awarded in the form of cash prizes and the opportunity for a two-person show at Project Basho Gallery. Additionally, a selection of artists will be chosen to exhibit their work on Flak Photo (, a daily photography website that celebrates the art and culture of photography online. Produced by Andy Adams, the site highlights new series work, book projects and gallery exhibitions from an international community of contributors.

Last year, ONWARD ‘09 attracted over 400 applicants with over 1600 photographs nationally and internationally. Peter Barberie, the Curator of Photographs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, selected  73 photographs, by 69 emerging photographers, which were exhibited at Project Basho Gallery during the months of January and February.

October 22nd- Jerry Uelsmann presents at the Southeast Museum of Photography

On October 22nd 6:00 pm photographer Jerry Uelsmann will be presenting at the Southeast Museum of Photography

From the PDN Legends site:

Jerry Uelsmann was born in Detroit, Michigan, and developed an interest in photography as a high-school student. He graduated in the first four-year B.F.A. degree program in photography at the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1957 and published his first image in Photography Annual that same year. Uelsmann went on to continue his studies in audio-visual communications, art history and design at Indiana University, where he studied under Henry Holmes Smith, a professor whom Uelsmann says was his most important teacher and influence in life. “He changed the way I thought.” Uelsmann received his M.F.A. and M.S. degrees from Indiana University in 1960. That same year he began teaching photography at the University of Florida in Gainesville in 1960 (“my first job offer”) and was a graduate research professor of art at the University of Florida since 1974. He is currently retired from teaching.
