This on-line discussion has no submission fee and is judged by photographers, for photographers:
From the Photo Coleslaw blog:
Somewhere within the long, hot days and the dripping popsicles lays a sense of unencumbered freedom. A justification to go barefoot and to lay on your back…. In conjunction with this carefree mood, Photo Coleslaw is presenting it’s First Photo Invitational. During the month of August Photographer, Jennifer Spelman is inviting you to submit 3 photos that key in on the feeling of summer. Jennifer Spelman is looking for photos that go beyond the cliches and really examine what summer is. Dig deep, take the theme and make it personal.
Three panelists will discuss why they each chose a photo. Jennifer Spelman will chime in as well. A discussion on why these photo rose to the top will ensue. In reward of the efforts of the three chosen photographers, Spelman will send them each a matted 8 x 10 print of their choosing from her website.
So you have the entire month of August to shoot. Put down your slurpee and pick up your camera. Spelman would love to see what you create. Send all submissions to Jennifer@JenniferSpelman.com. Title the subject line in the email: Infinite Summer Submission and include up to three jpgs (72 dpi). All submissions are due by midnight on August 31, 2010. All submissions must be sent with the inherent permission that they may be posted (and will be credited) on www.photocoleslaw.com. All decisions by the panelists are final.
The three panelists you need to impress were all chosen for the various perspectives they will bring to their decisions:
DAN MILNOR – Photographer Daniel Milnor splits his time between the smog-choked chaos of Southern California and the spiritual landscape of New Mexico. He is happiest with his notebook, Leica and trusty leather boots, sizing up whatever situation is happening in front of him. Milnor is former newspaper, magazine and commercial photographer who now tries to work solely on his own projects, projects that allow him to work in the fashion he feels most likely to produce images that go beyond the temporary. He has taught at several prestigious learning centers such as Art Center College of Design, The Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and The Julia Dean Workshops but feels his most important educational opportunity comes when he is able to spend time with his young nephews, teaching them a range of things that have all, at one time or another, gotten them in trouble at school. His judging experience is diverse, covering such things as his wife’s cooking, his fathers fashion disasters and all the random people he sees in airports around world, whom he never gives the benefit of the doubt. But most importantly, Milnor is the author of the blog Smogranch, which allows him to speak his mind, post his mother’s poetry and bring together like-minded people around the globe.
JENNIFER DAVIDSON – As a marine biologist-turned-photographer from a ranching family in rural west Texas, Jennifer’s views of photography are as varied as her personal history. Much of her time these days is spent on the road teaching photography workshops for Santa Fe Photo Workshops, National Geographic Expeditions and Linblad Expeditions. She has critiqued over 10,000 photos in her time as an instructor. When not photographing or encouraging others in their visual journey, Davidson spends her time hiking in the mountains, on the yoga mat or in the kitchen concocting new and unique ice cream flavors to feed her summer addiction.
VICKY SPELMAN – LANG – Yep, Spelman’s mama. Her mom has recently retired from almost 20 years in law enforcement. She also makes a mean lemon-meringue pie. She’s tough to impress and has a good handle on what summer means. When not helping her son or daughter out in their endeavors, Spelman-Lang is most often found with an imposing pickax in hand, waging war on weeds silly enough to attempt residency within her pristine yard.”
From the website:
The Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) at Duke University and The Honickman Foundation (THF), based in Philadelphia, co-sponsor this prestigious biennial prize for American photographers. The only prize of its kind, the CDS / Honickman First Book Prize competition is open to American photographers of any age who have never published a book-length work and who use their cameras for creative exploration, whether it be of places, people, or communities; of the natural or social world; of beauty at large or the lack of it; of objective or subjective realities. The prize will honor work that is visually compelling, that bears witness, and that has integrity of purpose.
Renowned photographer and writer Robert Adams was the prize’s inaugural judge. Maria Morris Hambourg, Curator in Charge of the Department of Photographs at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, judged the second biennial competition. The judge for the third competition (2006) was Robert Frank, one of America’s most important and influential photographers. Celebrated photographer Mary Ellen Mark was the judge of the fourth prize competition in fall 2008. The fifth prize judge (2010) is William Eggleston. The winning photographer receives a grant of $3,000, publication of a book of photography, and inclusion in a Web site devoted to presenting the work of winners of the prize. The judge also writes the introduction for the book, which will be published by Duke University Press in association with CDS Books of the Center for Documentary Studies.

“Annual Soho Photo Alternative Process Competition.
Download 2010 Prospectus
Soho Photo initiated its Annual Alternative Processes Competition in 2005 with the objective of recognizing the achievements of those photographers who continue to craft their images the way photographers have done since the beginning of the medium. These alternative processes include (but are not limited to) albumen, cyanotype, Van Dyke Brown, platinum/palladium, gum bichromate, bromoil, salt print, ambrotype, tintype, image transfer and Ziatype. 19th Century photographic processes dominate this genre, however some modern methods have joined the accepted ranks. Alternative photography results in the creation of one-of-a-kind handmade images, with the imprint of each photographer’s special individuality and artistry.
In previous competitions, jurors have included John Stevenson, Christopher James, Tricia Rosenkilde and Dan Estabrook. The juror for 2009’s competition was Robert A. Schaefer Jr. whose picks resulted in a month-long show featuring the winning photographs of 44 photographers from all over the United States. The winners’ list from that competition is available, 2009 winners.
Soho Photo’s 6th Annual Alternative Competition Show is scheduled for November 2 to 27, 2010.
Soho Photo Gallery is pleased to welcome as the distinguished jurors for this year’s competition, France Scully Osterman and Mark Osterman, who are uniquely qualified to jury the SOHO PHOTO Annual Alternative Processes Competition. They are both fine art photographers and scholars specializing in early photographic processes, most notably, wet-plate collodion. Mark has researched, practiced and taught historic processes for well over 20 years and is currently process historian at George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film. France is an artist, writer, and educator at Scully & Osterman Studio and guest scholar at Eastman House.
