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
