Selected Photographers

Thank you everyone who submitted to ONWARD ‘11! This year was by far our biggest and most competitive year yet with 614 photographers submitting 2,240 photographs. Entries came in from 22 countries around the world including Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Japan, and Russia. Legendary photographer Larry Fink painstakingly made his selections over a two-day span, arriving at a final selection of 70 photographs by 63 photographers. Congratulations to the selected photographers, whose names are listed below!

Also, take a look at our Selected Photographers Announcement video which is introduced by Larry Fink and features a slew of Philadelphians announcing the names of the ONWARD ‘11 selected photographers.

The ONWARD ‘11 exhibition will take place at the Project Basho Gallery from February 10, 2011 until March 27, 2011. The two winners of ONWARD ‘11 will be announced at the opening reception on February 12, 2011. The winners will be awarded a two-person exhibition at Project Basho, a sponsored invitation from Ricoh’s photo gallery, RING CUBE, to attend the opening of the ONWARD exhibition in Tokyo in May, cameras from Ricoh, as well as other prizes from ONWARD sponsors. We look forward to seeing you for the opening in February 2011!

Again, thank you to all who entered, and congratulations to the selected photographers.
