FCBarcelona Photo Awards. Deadline Dec. 30, 2016

Description

The FCBarcelona Photo Awards, sponsored by Agbar and in partnership with the Fundación Foto Colectania, wish to identify work that deliberately reflects the intrinsically positive values of sport. They have been created in order to recognise these values, as viewed through the lens of contemporary photography.

The prizes will be judged by an international jury of renowned prestige. Such big names as Vicente Todolí, ex director of the Tate Modern London and Ayperi Karabuda Ecer, vice-president of pictures at the Reuters agency, will be assessing this ambitious club project, promoted from its Department of International and Institutional Relations.

FCBarcelona will be making the utmost effort to raise awareness of the awards and the winning entries on a worldwide scale by means of a variety of promotional events in different cities of Europe, the USA and Asia.

Categories, Prizes and Jury

The FCBarcelona Photo Awards are divided into two categories:

PHOTO AWARDS

This category is aimed at photographers with a proven history of working for the media, photography agencies or in the arts world, and will honour the photograph that best expresses the positive values of sport, and particularly non-professional sport.

There will be one first prize of €40,000 and 29 finalists who will receive €1,000

The winning photograph, along with the finalists, will be on show at an exhibition organised by FC Barcelona from April to June 2017.

  • Sandra Phillips, senior curator of the MOMA in San Francisco

PROJECT AWARDS

This category is aimed at photographers with a proven history of working for the media, photography agencies or in the arts world, or that have experience of project development.

The winner will receive €40,000 to carry out the photography project that best expresses the intrinsic positive values of sport and its contribution to modern society.

The winning project will be undertaken from March to October 2017 and will be exhibited along with the winning photographs in the PHOTO AWARDS category of the 2017 edition.

The jury for this prize will be made up of the following people:

  • Ayperi Karabuda Ecer, vice-president of pictures at Reuters

Information : enquiry.photocompetition@villanoailles-hyeres.com

Every Spring in the South of France, the Festival spotlights young promising artists in the fields of fashion and photography. The festival proposes diverse exhibitions, professional panel discussions and three competitions. These competitions highlight ten fashion designers, ten photographers and ten accessories designers, who are selected by a jury of professionals in each field. The work of the selected artists is presented to the jury members and general public during either fashion shows (for the fashion designers), a group exhibition (for the photographers) or a group exhibition and a video (for the accessories designers).

On the last days of the month of April, as every Spring since 1997, the villa Noailles will once again become the epicenter for emerging photography.

There, in the photography section of the Festival de Hyères, ten artist-photographers will exhibit their personal conjugation of the verb to see. Hyères defends and praises photographic works that strive for sense, singularity, innovation and uncompromising artistic standards. The bodies of work spotlighted at Hyères are still being born. Yet, the articulateness of their aesthetic stances confidently allows us to bet on their projection into the future. Attentively sorted and short-listed, an imposing lot of nearly 800 worldwide submissions is put under the scrutiny and appraisal of an international jury of professionals that gathers, late January, in Paris. The jury’s choice of the ten photographers to showcase sets in motion an exacting curatorial and production process that will culminate shortly in the unveiling to the public, on the walls of the villa Noailles, of an exciting group exhibition: ten new artistic visions that will help shape the photography of tomorrow.

During the three days of the festival, the selected photographers meet to discuss their exhibited work and ongoing portfolios with the members of the jury. Art dealers, museum curators, art critics, art directors for magazines or advertising agencies, among past Festival jurors we can randomly mention Urs Stahel (Fotomuseum Winterthur), Marloes Krijnen (FOAM, Amsterdam), Dennis Freedman (W, New York), Charlotte Cotton, Glenn O’Brien, Marta Gili (Jeu de Paume, Paris), Jörg Koch (032C, Berlin), James Reid (Wallpaper*, London), Frits Gierstberg (Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam),
Kathy Ryan (New York Times, New York), David Campany (London), Joerg Colberg (Conscientious), Charles Fréger (photographer, France), Erik Kessels (KesselsKramer, Amsterdam), Brett Rogers (The Photographer’s Gallery, London), Karen Langley (Dazed, London), Winfried Heininger (Kodoji Press, Switzerland), Damien Poulain (Oodee, London), Jason Evans (photographer, United Kingdom), Mutsuko Ota (IMA, Tokyo), etc. Agents, art dealers and art directors, all eager to meet new talent, also attend the Festival. The Hyères meetings between artists and jurors render possible an in-depth discussion – elsewhere highly improbable – about the photographer’s work and its potentialities. An intellectually intense exchange between photographers and key figures of the artistic and commercial spheres, these one to one meetings have often proved fruitful opening for the photographers the doors to different media, from the pages of a magazine to the walls of a museum or an advertising campaign.

PARTNERS
The Festival is organised by the Association villa Noaillesand has been financed through the support of the City of Hyères, since its creation in 1986, and since 2003 by the Communauté d’agglomération Toulon Provence Méditerranée, with the support of Direction Régionale des Affaires Culturelles (ministère de la Culture et de la Communication), of Conseil Régional Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, of Conseil Départemental du Var.

Smithsonian Photo Contest. Deadline: Nov. 30, 2016

Smithsonian Photo Contest

According to Format Magazine’s “Best Photography Contests and Prizes in 2016“, “the Smithsonian’s reputation might not be quite on the level of National Geographic, but it also has similar mainstream recognition, which translates into major exposure. The only caveat is that the magazine controls the most of the rights to the winning photo, which has given some professionals pause”. However, they recommend it, as there is no entry fee, and “the potential benefits far outweigh the rights issue”. So have a look at the terms and make a decision.

Term:
Smithsonian.com’s 14th Annual Photo Contest begins March 22, 2016, and ends November 30, 2016, at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST). By submitting an entry, each contestant agrees to the rules of the contest and states that he or she is 18 years old or older.

Who may enter:

The Grand Prize, Readers’ Choice prize, Natural World, Travel, People, The American Experience and Mobile category prizes are open to photographers who are 18 years old or older. The Sustainable Travel category prize, made possible through the support of United Eco-Skies, is restricted to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia. Individuals affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution, including employees, emeriti, Regents, trustees, interns, volunteers, fellows, research associates and their immediate families (children, siblings and spouses), and employees of United Airlines, Inc. (Sponsor), its parent or affiliate companies as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children), and others living in their households are not eligible for any prize. The Smithsonian will determine winners’ eligibility in its sole discretion.

Sponsors:  Smithsonian Institution and United Airlines

What to enter:
The following six contest categories are drawn from subjects of special interest to Smithsonian.com:

1.     Natural World: Animals, plants and landscapes; geological or climatological features; and scientific processes and endeavors.

2.     Travel: Locales, peoples or activities in the United States and abroad that convey a sense of place.

3.     People: Individuals from all walks of life.

4.     The American Experience: Events, objects or activities connecting the American people to their history or their cultural heritage; photographs that tell us what it means to be an American and provide a sense of what it is like to live in this country.

5.     Altered Images: Photographs manipulated for artistic purposes by applying digital and/or traditional special effects (i.e., colorizing, toning, collage, photo composites, HDR, etc.).

6.     Mobile: The Smithsonian will award a prize to the best photograph submitted in any of the other categories that was taken with a mobile device (phone or tablet).

7.     The Sustainable Travel category, made possible through the support of United Eco-Skies, returns for its second year. The award for this category, the Eco-Skies Sustainable Travel Leadership Award, recognizes a photographer who demonstrates leadership and an active commitment to travel for environmentally responsible purposes, generating positive social, economic, or environmental outcomes in the local communities traveled to and ensuring the destination remains an attractive place to live, work and visit for future generations. Examples of sustainable travel projects include:

·      Environmental conservation and reforestation

·      Eco-construction and restoration projects

·      Local community enrichment and empowerment volunteering

·      Environmental awareness and education

·      Exemplary eco-conscious visitor behavior

Entries in this seventh category should address the question: What does a sustainable travel project look like to you? Entries also must be accompanied by a 100-word or less photo caption describing the photo’s content and story behind the photo.

If the judges determine that a photographer has altered his or her photo, they reserve the right to move the photo to Altered Images or to disqualify it.

For a photo in which a person is recognizable, you must secure a model release from the subject or, in the case of a minor, the subject’s parent or guardian and provide it to the Smithsonian upon request. A sample model release is available here. A sample model release for the Sustainable Travel category, sponsored by United Eco-Skies, is available here.

*If you have a signed model release, please retain it in your personal files. If you are selected as a finalist, you will be asked to submit the release at that time.

Similarly, entrants whose photos depict other people’s work (such as sculptures, statues, paintings, and other copyrightable works) may be need to obtain a release from the rights holder and provide it to the Smithsonian upon request. When photographing the work of others, it must be as an object in its environment and not a full-frame close-up of another person’s creation. A sample art release is available here.

Photographs that have won other major photo contests, either online or in print, as determined by the Smithsonian, are not eligible for submission. If a photograph wins another major photo contest post submission, it is not eligible for a prize, but may still be recognized as an Editor’s Pick or Photo of the Day. We define winning as having won a grand prize or 1st, 2nd or 3rd place overall.
