Announcing ONWARD '11

Thanks for checking out the open call for ONWARD ‘11! Now in our fourth year of selecting and exhibiting the world’s foremost emerging contemporary photographers, this year is particularly exciting for ONWARD as we continue to grow our community on an international level. This is the first year we will translate the materials for the open call into another language – Japanese. This will allow for an even richer discourse and interaction between our ever-growing international photography community. We are also thrilled to have partnered with so many fantastic photography organizations. Chosen work will of course be featured in the ONWARD ‘11 exhibition at the Project Basho Gallery, but selected photographers from ONWARD ‘11 will also have the opportunity to have their work featured through several of our media sponsors including Fraction Magazine, PhotoArts, Visura, Flak Photo, and SeeSaw Magazine. The two winners will also receive a two-person show at the Project Basho Gallery as well as special prizes from Lensbaby and FotoVisura.

We are also especially delighted to have the very prolific Larry Fink as this year’s juror. Mr. Fink’s work deals largely with the stark difference between social classes in America, oftentimes providing viewers with insight into a world not their own. His photographs have been exhibited at at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of Modern Art; the San Francisco Museum of Art; the Musee de la Lausanne Photographie in Belgium; and the Musee de l’Elysee in Switzerland. He has also been awarded two Guggenheim Fellowships in 1976 and 1979. To find out more about Mr. Fink, please visit our ‘This Year’s Juror’ page.

In addition to all of the exciting things going on for ONWARD ‘11, this is also the first year that photographers will submit their work primarily via our Online Form. To check out all of the details, please review the Submission Guidelines.

The deadline for the open call for entries is Friday, November 19, 2010. The ONWARD ‘11 exhibition of selected work will take place at the Project Basho Gallery from February 10 – March 27, 2011.
