A contingent from Photocrati will traveling to Virginia this weekend to attend LookBetween, and awesome event for some of the world’s most promising emerging photographers.
We’ll be taking the occasion to announce the winner of the 2010 Photocrati Fund competition! We had over 400 applications for this year’s competition, the first ever. There were a lot of great photographers, amazing images, and innovative projects. We want to thank Steve McCurry, Nick Nichols, and Art Wolfe for their time reviewing and voting over the last two months. We’ll be announcing the winner on Saturday night at LookBetween, and we’ll post an announcement here early next week!
For those who have not heard of it, LookBetween promises to be an amazing event. It’s a spin-off of LOOK3: Festival of the Photograph. LOOK3 is hosting an experimental two night event to present the work of 90 innovative photographers on a farm 30 minutes west of Charlottesville. The 90 artists showing work were asked to participate by experts in this field such as PDN, Burn Magazine, Humble Arts, Getty Images, VII, and others. This initiative is designed to showcase early-career talent and engage the presenting artists with media professionals on practices and trends influencing the direction of photography today.
Each night will feature outdoor projections of work by the invited emerging photographers in attendance. Showcasing the work of these talented photographers is a main focus of the weekend. However, LOOKbetween is also designed to create networking opportunities and be a forum for the exchange of ideas between professionals and those early in their career. Saturday daytime will be devoted to discussion about important issues in photography. Thank you to BD and National Geographic for supporting LOOKbetween.
