NOPA Accepting Submissions for $5000 Clarence John Laughlin Award

The New Orleans Photo Alliance (NOPA) is pleased to announce its offering of an annual $5000 award to recognize and reward a fine art photographer who is creating or has completed a significant body of photographic work.

The Clarence John Laughlin Award was created by the New Orleans Photo Alliance to support the work of photographers who use the medium as a means of creative expression. It honors the life and work of Clarence John Laughlin (1905-1985), a New Orleans photographer best known for his surrealist images of the American South. The Clarence John Laughlin Award grants one $5000 prize annually to a photographer whose work exhibits sustained artistic excellence and creative vision.

George Slade, Curator for Photographic Resource Center, will serve as this year’s juror.
