International Fine Art Photography Competition

The Finalists

Earlier this year I was invited to be a juror for the first International Fine Art Photography Competition, in the company of photographers Jane Evelyn Atwood and Michael Kenna; Jean-Claude Lemagny, Honorary Curator of Photography, Bibliothèque Nationale de France; author, curator, and former Chair of the Department of Photography at The Art Institute of Chicago, David Travis; and Alexandre Percy, Director of ACTE2 Galerie, Paris. The competition was sponsored by the Paris-based DeGroot Foundation. The Grand Prix de la Découverte winners’ prizes included a weekend in Paris for the opening of the exhibition during Paris Photo, and all 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and the finalists had work accepted into the prestigious collection of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
