Here's a great opportunity if you're teaching in or around New York, the Hearst Magazine 8x10 Photography Biennial competition. Lindsay Galin, of Hearst PR sent me the following information:
This exhibit featuring the winning photographs from Hearst Magazines' 8x10 Photography Biennial competition. The eight winners and ten runners-ups’ work is on exhibition for free in the Hearst Tower in New York City today through September 30. The 89 photographs featured in this exhibit, which includes portraits, landscapes, fashion, photojournalism and still-life images, is open to the public by appointment at 212-649-2148.Even if you can't make it to NYC, there are some truly stunning and inspiring photographs on the site. The one above is Hiroshi Watanabe's Santa Monica Pier. Times like these I wish I were still living in New York.
Hearst Magazines' 8 x 10 Photography Biennial is an international competition that recognizes the professional work of emerging young photographers. This year's winners are eight rising stars who a distinguished panel of judges -- including Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Peter Lindbergh, Mary Ellen Mark, Steve McCurry, Esquire Editor-in-Chief David Granger and more -- believe will play an important role in the future of magazines, media, the Web and the worlds of design and photography. The competition received over 1,000 entries from photographers in 47 different countries. John Bennette, a curator, writer and lecturer on photography curated the exhibit.
