Five photo contests, including WPGA

Photobizguru notifies us of five contests that are worth a look:

Wide Open
Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition
Wide Open spaces… arms wide open… eyes wide open… Just feel all the possibilities of knowledge and freedom and love. But as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite. Wide open to attack… wide open to lawsuit… wide open to corruption… wide open to failure…What kind of fantasy phrase is this?
Jurors: Anne Strauss – Associate Curator, Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC; Nicholas Baume – Director & Chief Curator, Public Art Fund, NYC; Mark Hughes – Director, Galleria Lelong, Chelsea, NYC; Bill Murphy – Associate Professor & Gallery Director, Printmaker & Painter, Wagner College, NYC
