Hearst Corporation announces 2011 8×10 Photography Biennial Competition. I would encourage any photographer with an interesting series to enter. <My advice for any competition or portfolio review>
In 2009 I was one of the eight winners of that Biennial — The premiere biennial garnered more than 1,000 entries from 47 countries. I can tell you it is a high-profile well-run competition that has helped my career in fine art photography. It was great to have my work on display at the Hearst Tower (West 57th st) in NYC.
Details at: www.hearst8x10.com. The 2011 contest is open to all U.S. and international freelance, amateur and professional photographers and students, aged 18 to 35 years of age.
An international competition saluting the next generation of talent, which will play an important role in the future of magazines, media, the web, design and photography. Hearst 8×10 Photography Biennial is a competition to identify and promote new and emerging talent among photographers in the United States and abroad.
Selected works will be showcased in an exhibition under the title, “8×10” in the Alexey Brodovitch Gallery and the Hearst Gallery at Hearst Tower in New York City. Winners will be published in the accompanying “8×10” catalog and on www.hearst.com and www.hearst8x10.com.
