From the competition website:
Deadline: March 11, 2008
“Enter the most prestigious competition for creativity in photography, the 49th annual Communication Arts Photography Competition. Any photograph first printed or produced between March 14, 2007 and March 11, 2008 is eligible. Selected by a nationally representative jury of distinguished designers, art directors and photographers, the winning entries will be published in the August 2008 Photography Annual. Over 70,000 copies of the Photography Annual will be distributed worldwide, assuring important exposure to the creators of this outstanding work. As a service to art directors, designers and art buyers, a comprehensive index will carry addresses and telephone numbers of the photographers represented.”
I encourage all of you are interested in having your work seen by art directors, designers, photo editors and more to apply; I love seeing the work that is accepted into the “Unpublished” section – often the first time I see the newest personal work of photographers, known or unknown to me. I also appreciate that the judging is done by committee, in person, rather than online, remotely. Judges are announced at the time of publication of this special issue of the magazine, and in the past there has been a wide mix of individuals representing multiple markets. Good luck! I can tell you being accepted in this competition has opened the door to new markets for many photographers.
