Lens Culture International Exposure Awards: Closed


Lens Culture International Exposure Awards discover, reward, and promote talented, new, emerging and established photographers from around the world.

We’re looking for exciting images from every continent, and from diverse points of view: documentary, fine art, photojournalism, street photography, nature, sports, fashion, poetic, personal, abstract and human.

An international jury of photography experts will review and judge every photo submitted.

This year, in addition to cash awards and other prizes, we’re delighted to announce that all winning photographs will be featured in well-publicized International Exposure Awards traveling exhibitions at galleries in Paris, New York and San Francisco in 2011. (Additional international gallery venues may be announced soon.) The winning photographs will also get prominent, exclusive photo features in Lens Culture, giving them access and broad exposure to an enthusiastic, influential worldwide audience.

Six photographers will win top honors (3 Portfolio Awards, and 3 Single Image Awards). Additionally, 25 photographers (from either category) will win Honorable Mention Awards.

Last year, we received over 6,000 images from photographers in 48 countries on six continents! Many of the 29 winners from 2009 continue to achieve great success with their careers — winning other awards (including two World Press Photo Awards), signing publishing contracts, getting editorial assignments, group and solo exhibitions, artists residencies, and having their work collected by institutions and private collectors around the world.

Award Categories and Prizes

All levels of emerging and professional photographers are invited to apply for these awards. Two categories of photographs will be judged:

Portfolio Awards

Submit 10 to 15 photographic images that are linked — thematically, aesthetically, as a story, or simply as a range of your photographic talent. Edit your selections carefully, since this category will be judged on the strength of the group of photographs as a whole, and not as individual photographs. Entry fee: $75.

Portfolio Category Prizes:

Grand Prize $2,500 cash
2nd Prize $1,000 cash
3rd Prize $500 cash


Each winning portfolio will be presented in a prominent feature article in Lens Culture (along with the photographers’ names and links to their web pages), PLUS publication in our deluxe 2010 Winner’s Catalog, AND inclusion in the International Exposure Awards traveling exhibitions — all powerful ways to get the attention of hundreds of thousands of photography lovers!

Single Image Photo Awards

Often, a single powerful photograph captures our attention as important, artistic, meaningful, and memorable. A great photo can stand on its own, demonstrating a remarkable level of visual perception, sensitivity, and creativity. Photographs of all genres and all categories are welcome. The jury will choose three cash prize winners in this category. Entry fees: $35 per image, or $60 to submit two to five images.

Prizes for Single Image Photo Awards:

Grand prize: $1,500 cash
2nd prize: $500 cash
3rd prize: $250 cash


All Single Image Winners will be presented in a prominent feature article in Lens Culture (along with the photographers’ names and links to their web pages), PLUS publication in our deluxe 2010 International Exposure Awards Winners Catalog, AND inclusion in the International Exposure Awards traveling exhibitions.

25 Honorable Mention Awards:

25 Honorable Mention photographs (chosen by the judges from either category — Portfolio or Single Image) will win prominent placement of a single photo on the Award Winner’s Page in Lens Culture, including a link to your own personal or professional website. PLUS publication in our deluxe 2010 International Exposure Awards Winners Catalog, AND inclusion in the International Exposure Awards traveling exhibitions.

ALL winners will also be announced in the Lens Culture blog, along with a special mention in the Lens Culture email newsletter that is sent to thousands of subscribers. Prints of some of the winning images may also be eligible for sale via Lens Culture Editions, subject to an optional agreement between the winner and Lens Culture.

Submit your photos by September 18, 2010

Applicants must submit their photos to us online at: After you have uploaded your images and information, you will be asked to pay your submission fee of $75 for the Portfolio category, or $35 (to submit one photo) or $60 (to submit two to five photos) for the Single Image category. For good image quality and fast upload, your image files should be less than 2 MB each, and sized around 1024 x 768 pixels @ 72 ppi. Our online portal offers additional instruction for submitting work. For complete submission guidelines and rules, please see our FAQs and rules.

Winners will be announced on October 15, 2010

Prizes will be awarded, and all winning photographs will be exhibited online, prominently, to coincide with Lens Culture’s extra-special Paris Photo Edition in November 2010.

Jan van Eyck Academie Call: Closed Oc. 1, 2010

Application deadline
1 October 2010

Jan van Eyck Academie
Academieplein 1
6211 KM Maastricht
The Netherlands

The Jan van Eyck Academie is an institute for research and production where artists, designers and theoreticians work alongside each other.

The JVE has positions available in the Fine Art and Design Departments for the next academic year, starting on 1 January 2011. Artists are invited to submit proposals for individual research projects; designers can apply for one of the projects formulated by the department.

The Fine Art department offers a unique space for experimentation, production, reflection and debate. Researchers conduct their artistic research in an environment that encourages questioning of the assumptions, forms, meanings and contexts that are tied to the practice of making art today. The Fine Art department welcome artists, individuals and groups, without stipulating conditions regarding form, content and media.

Artistic practice is supported by a programme of events and sustained conversations organised by the (advising) researchers. The academy offers expertise in all media and production areas, in-house or in cooperation with partner organisations, and encourages publishing through the Jan van Eyck publication series.

The Fine Art Department is headed by advising researchers Hans-Christian Dany, Imogen Stidworthy and Nasrin Tabatabai & Babak Afrassiabi.

Candidate researchers for the Design Department can apply for one of the following projects:

Strijp-S is an urban development plan that tries to turn the 66-acres of the former Philips factory in Eindhoven from a ‘Forbidden City’ into a ‘ Creative City with an unequalled character’. The project is a visual research into new divisions of labour that emerge as soon as heavy industries and mass-production are replaced by what is coined as cognitive, immaterial or affective labour.

The project calls for designers, urbanists, video- and filmmakers.
Advising researcher: Florian Schneider

Exploring the practice, methods and messages of type-design, *Latent stare* proposes a gathering and study of selected typefaces and stories, from the 1900s onwards – when technology had accelerated, and begun to affect, the production and distribution of new types. The selected material is affiliated to a political, social or spiritual set of beliefs which feed back into the typefaces creation, design and/or use.

Advising researcher: David Bennewith

NEUTRALITY_Polity and Space in the Post-Eurocentric City
Researches the modalities and substances that contemporary practices of neutrality give rise to and contribute in sustaining. The project will aim at outlining innovative paths towards design agency and creativity and analyses forms of transformation and control of contemporary space.

Advising researcher: John Palmesino

HTML5 is supposed to open a new chapter in web design and web-based publishing. Open Video will research into past and present open-source video implementations to develop an independent platform that explores the specific potentials of self-authored and self-managed, open-source video publishing initiatives against the backdrop of the overwhelming dominance of mass-media like content providers.

The project calls for code developers, web designers and digital content producers.
Advising researcher: Florian Schneider

REMOTE SENSING_Biopolitical Imagery
Investigates how new remote-sensing technologies are shaping and carving contemporary spaces of operation and sovereignty, and focuses on the agency that these new technologies elicit and entail. The project singles out a series of contemporary situations and traces the complex links and exchanges between the production of new images through remote sensing and the outline of new legal and governmental issues.

The project calls for data visualisation designers, interaction designers, urbanists, architects, photographers, video and filmmakers.
Advising researchers: John Palmesino and Florian Schneider

More information on each project on

The Design Department is currently headed by advising researchers John Palmesino, Florian Schneider and Daniel van der Velden.

PLEASE FORWARD this information to art and film organizations, art networks, production organizations, artists and filmmakers you are in contact with.

The ‘Rencontres Internationales’ offers more than a simple presentation of the works. It introduces an intercultural forum gathering various guests from all over the world – artists and filmmakers, institutions and emerging organizations – to testify of their reflections and their experiences, but also of artistic and cultural contexts that are often undergoing deep changes.
The ‘Rencontres Internationales’ reflects specificities and convergences of artistic practices between new cinema and contemporary art, explores emerging media art practices and their critical purposes, and makes possible a necessary time when points of view meet and are exchanged.
The event aims at presenting works to a broad audience, at creating circulations between different art practices and between different audiences, as well as creating new exchanges between artists, filmmakers and professionals.
It seeks to contribute to a reflection on our contemporary culture of image via a compelling program opened to everyone..

In 2007, the Rencontres Internationales, which initially took place in Paris and Berlin, opened up to a third city: Madrid. The event constitutes a unique artistic and cultural platform in Europe for artists, professional networks and various audiences. The venues in the three cities are in particular the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, the Reina Sofia National Museum and the Spanish Cinematheque in Madrid.

The ‘Rencontres Internationales’ is a non-commercial event without competition, supported by French, German, Spanish and international institutions.
