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 (http://www.flakphoto.com/), 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.
