It seems like NYPF overall is a good thing. So here is a bit of an advert to enter yeself in the the NY Photo Award contest if you can swing it.Maybe I will enter the foregoing:
In its inaugural year, the New York Photo Awards surpassed all expectations in terms of the quality, reach, and number of submissions that were received (over 3,500 submissions and 15,000 images were received from 60+ countries worldwide). The New York Photo Awards 2009 will once again honor talented photographers from all over the world whose exceptional work breaks new ground visually, intellectually, and aesthetically. Submissions will be accepted March 2 – May 1, 2009. The Award winners will be announced in May during the second edition of the Festival.
The New York Photo Awards Ceremony is scheduled to return to St. Ann’s Warehouse on Friday, May 15, 2009, starting at 8pm. The work of the Award Winners and Honorable Mentions will be presented on the big screen before a packed audience of industry luminaries. Fourteen major awards will be publicly presented to the Award Winners, and 28 artists will receive Honorable Mention certificates.
In addition to the New York Photo Awards ceremony, their work will be showcased on the New York Photo Festival website, and published in leading photo magazines. These artists are also automatically eligible for inclusion in a beautifully produced New York Photo Awards Annual, available for purchase online through the New York Photo Festival website.
