Carnegie Regional Photo Competition October 2012
The Carnegie is pleased to announce its participation in FOTOFOCUS, a biennial, month-long celebration of historical and contemporary photography and lens-based art slated for October 2012.
ABOUT THE CARNEGIE’S REGIONAL PHOTO COMPETITION
The Carnegie’s regional photography competition aims to showcase the best photographers from our region. Approximately 50 photographers will be selected by a panel of judges for the show. Cash and purchase awards will be presented. Additional information can be found on The Carnegie’s website at www.thecarnegie.com. Deadline for entries is March 16, 2012.
A catalyst for unprecedented regional inter-institutional collaboration and community engagement, FOTOFOCUS will bring together museums, galleries, and universities to showcase world-renowned artists and national and regional standouts. The event will also feature emerging talents and students in “pop-up” exhibitions at alternative spaces, community art centers, and other grass roots organizations. More information is available at www.fotofocuscincinnati.org
