From the e-announcement:

Entry Deadline: July 17, 2010

The Julia Dean Photo Workshops is pleased to announce The 2010 Berenice Abbott Prize for an Emerging Photographer, an international competition.  One person is selected for this prize and is given a one-person, all expenses paid, exhibition at an LA gallery (location and date TBA), an exhibition book, a Canon EOS 50D/ EF 28-135 Kit, plus a spread of the winning work in Rangefinder magazine. The winner will also receive a photograph of Berenice Abbott taken by Hank O’Neal.

Juried by David Fahey of Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles.

Berenice Abbott was a photographer of great accomplishment. She began her career as an assistant to Man Ray and became known mostly for her documentary work of New York City in the 1930s. Berenice was also a portrait photographer, an educator, an inventor, and a writer. She believed that all photographers should have personal projects that they are passionate about, no matter what the subject matter. This award was created by Julia Dean to honor her teacher and friend.

What constitutes an Emerging Photographer? An emerging photographer does not mean a young photographer, though a young photographer can certainly enter. Rather, it means that you have an accomplished body of work that has not yet been exhibited or published widely.

Criteria & Scope: Whether a fine art photographer or documentary photographer, the work submitted for this contest should reflect a cohesive body of work.

Sponsored by: A&I Photographic and Digital Services; Canon USA; Universal Art Gallery; The Julia Dean Photo Workshops

Entry fee (for up to 25 images): $75

July 9th: Paula McCartney Lecture and Book Signing at PCNW in Seattle

From a Photographic Center North West (PCNW) e-blast:
Lecture & Book Signing Event with
Paula McCartney

Bird Watching

Friday, July 9, 7 PM
Photographic Center North West
900 12th Avenue Seattle WA 98122

Paula McCartney’s Bird Watching seems to be a most exemplary specimen of a bird-watching journal. However, a closer look reveals that she has activated her landscapes with decorative craft store birds. Her book, Bird Watching, was recently published by Princeton Architectural Press. McCartney has her MFA in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute and has exhibited at Klompching Gallery & Humble Arts Foundation in NY, PCNW & Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago.

We will also have exhibition prints available — build to your collection!
