Take Time Out To Appreciate The Power Of Photography Today

- - Awards

These films that MediaStorm created for the ICP Infinity Awards this year are simply fantastic. Do yourself a favor and take some time today or this week to watch and appreciate the emotion and power of photography in the world.

Since 1985, the International Center of Photography has recognized outstanding achievements in photography with its prestigious Infinity Awards. The awards ceremony is also ICPā€™s primary fundraising benefit, with its revenues assisting the center’s various programs.

ICP commissioned MediaStorm to create a short film about each of the recipients to screen at the awards ceremony and to later remain online. The films serve as an introduction of the recipients to the audience as well as a showcase of their work, highlighting the motivations for honoring them with Infinity Awards.

30 New And Emerging Photographers To Watch – PDN 2013

- - Awards

Congratulation to the class of 2013. Good luck to all of you.

From the press release email I received:

Photo District News (PDN) has just announced their list of the top 30 emerging photographers for 2013.Ā Selected from more than 300 photographers nominated from around the world, this year’s list represents 12 nationalities and virtually every genre of photography.Ā  To qualify for the award, photographers must be shooting professionally for five years or less.

I like how they define “emerging photographer” as someone who has been shooting professional for five years or less. Everyone has a different definition and of course we can debate “shooting professionally” but this one I like.

American Photography 26

- - Awards

American Photography has released a slideshow of this year’s winners via their facebook page. Many photo editors will be browsing through the images and googling the names they don’t recognize (why no links AP?) to find someone new to add to their list. Also, for the names they recognize it serves as a subtle reminder to give them a job soon.

If you want to test your photo editor skills see how many photographers you can name based on looking at the thumbs only. The Schoeller’s and Greenberg’s are easy to spot and also anything memorable from last year’s editorial calendar like the Kander’s, Platon’s, Pellegrin’s, Rubin’s and Ommanney’s.

Congratulations to all the photographers selected for the book and the website.
