- Calling all emerging photographers. Consider entering this competition, we have received a low number of entries for this exhibition. Open to all emerging photographers nationwide in the USA. Photographers can be considered emerging if they are just starting out in school, finishing grad school, beginning teaching careers, or simply a continued working photographer who has not been widely published or exhibited at major galleries and museums. We are looking to give one $250 Emerge Fellowship Award and exhibition opportunities to emerging photographers. This is the seventh year of the EMERGE competition. This fellowship opportunity is geared toward photographers looking to launch their art careers through the exposure of exhibition. Build your exhibition record with this exhibition through entering your photographs and competing for a space in the gallery and the chance to be designated as the 7th Annual Emerge Photographer, and be awarded the $250 Emerge Fellowship Award, and receive one year artist representation at MWCP online. As emerging photographers, building an exhibition record is an important aspect in propelling your career, and we feel strongly about offering this annual exhibition to provide this opportunity to photographers. All photographic media is welcome; digital inkjet prints, black & white gelatin silver prints, color c-prints, alternative processes, iphone photography, etc... Selection will be based upon the series of work submitted by each artist rather than solely on individual images. A brief artist statement is preferred but optional. Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online. One recipient will be awarded the $250 EMERGE Fellowship Award, and receive one year artist representation online by MWCP. Opening reception: Friday, April 5, 7 - 9 p.m. Exhibition dates: April 5 - April 19, 2019.
