This notice comes to us from Christina Miller:

FotoDC, the premier photography non-profit based in Washington, DC, is charging up for its annual festival, FotoWeek DC. The launch of the fourth annual International Awards Competition marks the continued celebration of the power of photography.

 

“For the past three years we have worked to uncover, discover, and spotlight professional and emerging photographers from our region and from around the globe,” said FotoDC Founder and President, Theo Adamstein.  “This year promises to have more entries than ever before due to our year-round programming and the growth of our festival.”

 

The competition will feature 11 different categories of entry. For single images, contestants can enter under Photojournalism/Social Documentary, Commercial, Fine Art, Contemporary Life, Travel, Portrait, and/or The Natural World.  If submitting a series, contestants can enter under Photojournalism/Social Documentary, Fine Art, and/or The Natural World. There will also be a Student Portfolio category (eligible for those 18 or older and enrolled in an accredited academic program), a Multimedia category, and a Mobile Phone category focused on the Spirit of Washington.

 

The competition is open to all photographers, both amateurs and professionals, and there is an early bird discount for work submitted by July 24, 2011. The final deadline for submissions before entries go to the panel of 17 world-class judges for review is September 12. Winners will be notified by October 5, 2011 via email.

 

With $20,000 in cash prizes, the top winners in each category will be well rewarded, with the opportunity for their work to be shown and/or projected during FotoWeek DC, November 5-12, 2011.
