How the Process Works

Everyone sees art differently and with that in mind each year we ask our guest juror to select the work that speaks to them. Rfotofolio, as always, is one of the jurors.

Work is considered as a portfolio.

Finalist will be included in our on-line gallery, future interviews, future publications, and future exhibitions. This year we are proud to have the Lensbaby Award and the Hahnemühle Paper award.
