The ONWARD ‘11 deadline has been extended from November 19th to November 30th! Submissions must be received via the online Submission Form by November 30th at 11:59 PM.
The number of submissions coming in has been incredible and we wanted to extend the deadline due to the fact that we added so many extra awards in the past couple of weeks. This will allow more people, including our Japanese audience, to fully grasp the weight of having their work shown both the US and Japan as part of the same exhibition.
If you have not had the chance to see the new details, we just announced that Ring Cube will award the two winners of ONWARD ‘11 by inviting them to Tokyo along with the ONWARD ‘11 exhibition where they will be joined by Larry Fink for the opening at the Ricoh photo gallery, Ring Cube! Ring Cube is also giving the two winners each a Ricoh digital camera on top of the sponsored trip to Tokyo. As we initially announced with the open call for entries, the two winners will also receive a two-person exhibition at the Project Basho Gallery here in Philadelphia, as well as gifts courtesy of Lensbaby and FotoVisura.
Last week we also announced that The West Collection will be making a special Onward Purchase Award, where they will choose a photograph from the ONWARD ‘11 exhibition to enter their extraordinary collection, which is one of the premier contemporary art collections in America. A selection of artists will also have the opportunity to exhibit their work through several of our media sponsors including Fraction Magazine, PhotoArts, Visura, Flak Photo, SeeSaw Magazine, and now Phrequency.
It has been an exciting past couple of weeks for ONWARD ‘11 and we are happy to open all of these new opportunities to those of you who enter and are selected for the exhibition. We look forward to receiving the submissions by the new November 30th deadline. Many thanks to everyone with their involvement thus far!
