Working Artist Photography is offering a new Working Artist Photography Award, a regular one-time art purchase award dedicated solely to photography and photo-based artwork. This award works in tandem with their monthly general discipline Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award.
The Working Artist Photography Award is available to all photographers and photo-based artists worldwide working in all traditional and non-traditional photography formats, genres and styles. Work accepted for review includes but is not limited to film, digital photography, digitally manipulated photography, glitch, straight and abstract photography, landscape, still life, fashion, documentary, street, black and white, color, and all methods concerning the finished photographic print.
If selected as their winner, they ask that the award recipient be willing to exchange one of their original works or smaller series of original works for inclusion in our collection in return for our award. Work considered by the artist as of equal value, and available for acquisition can be negotiated upon receipt of the award. They do pay the artist’s shipping costs. Please send them your best work for review.
If you are interested in being considered for their award, please either: send them your website, or, send them 5 digital images/files of recent work, (total mail size no larger than 2 MB please) — to them via email. No written proposals or CV’s are required unless the artist would like to include them. Instead, please simply include in the body of your email current contact information, and send to: firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no application form.
There is a submission review fee of $25.00, which helps offset the costs of this effort to fund meaningful work by serious artists.
Award recipients agree by completing their submission to limited use of their images or other representation of their artwork and general information to be featured on their site and corresponding promotional media. All rights will be retained by the artists.
Submissions for the next deadline of the Working Artist Photography Award must be submitted by midnight of July 17, 2017. They notify all participants of the results.
