EXPOSURE competition offers NYC/Paris stay, cash awards

The popular vote winner of a portfolio competition in the 3rd Annual EXPOSURE Competition, a project of the Artists Wanted organization of New York, will receive an unusually lavish gift–for a photo competition, at least: A “Dream Getaway” vacation to New York and Paris, in addition to a $2,500 cash grant.

The competition’s 2011 People’s Choice Awards Package will, more specifically, include a stay in a loft apartment in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood during the New York Photo Festival in May 2012, and a one-week stay in Paris.

Some $50,000 in prizes will be awarded to winners in the competition, in total. The grand prize winner of the juried component of the awards will receive a $10,000 grant and an exhibit at The Aperture Foundation Gallery in New York. Meanwhile, photographers of all backgrounds will have a shot at receipt of $18,500 in cash grants.

Submissions for the competition may be submitted at the awards website.

The “standard entry” deadline for Exposure 2011 is Wednesday, Nov. 30th, 2011. Submissions will continue to be accepted through the Final Entry Deadline of Sunday, Dec. 20, but late fees may apply. Entrants may submit up to eight images for $10 per image. A discounted rate of $88 is offered for more than nine and up to 20 images.
