socialdocumentary.net competition for NY Photo Fest is April 6

The website socialdocumentary.net is seeking submissions for a photo competition, “The Art of Documentary,” with the winners to be exhibited at this year’s New York Photo Festival, set for May 16-20. The deadline for entry is Friday, April 6.

According to the organizers, entries should look for photos which make the case that an image’s formal qualities–and being grounded in the traditions of fine art–helps provide insight into the image’s underlying content.

Entries can be submitted via the SDN website’s work standard submission tools, which now feature an option to designate a submission as a competition entry. Images already uploaded to SDN can be converted for competition entry. The entry fees is $25 for anywhere from six to 36 images.
