Carrie Leigh’s Nude Announces Third Annual Fine At Photography Contest
I thought aspiring models and also talented photographers might find intriguing
Carrie Leigh’s Nude Announces Third Annual Fine At Photography Contest. I love black and white photography and black and white nudes and Carrie's magazine is a rare publication that features the body as an art, and all shapes as well. Here is the scoop on the contest:
LOS ANGELES: Carrie Leigh’s NUDE, the fastest growing fine-art photography magazine in the world, today announced the long-awaited details surrounding its third annual photography contest. Open to amateur and professional photographers everywhere, this year’s Call For Entries has begun and is already off to a fantastic start.
As a quarterly publication NUDE is always eagerly anticipated by photographers and other artists, and continues to draw the top talent working today. Each issue features the best fine-art nudes printed with the strictest and most precise reproduction techniques available. Because of this dedication to the Art of Photography NUDE’s annual photography contest has grown ever more popular each year.
In addition to having the winning photographs published in the summer 2010 issue, cash prizes ranging form $50USD to $500(USD) will be awarded. The Grand Prize winner will have his or her own exhibit in the issue as well.
NUDE Publisher Carrie Leigh has decided to once again give back to the photographers and models that have made NUDE so successful. "As NUDE continues to grow we will continue to give back to the artistic community." Says Ms Leigh. "With the world’s economy in such turmoil and NUDE doing so well," Ms. Leigh says "we decided that this would be a great way of helping out those in the artistic community who have the desire to exhibit their work, to gain some recognition, and have it lead to bigger and better things."
The competition is for a single photo and exhibit, and the judges will include Carrie herself, Kim Weston and other internationally renowned photographers who have been exhibited in the publication. Grand prize for the exhibit is $500 with $250 and $100 for second and third respectively. Single image prizes are $250, $100 and $50. Judging criteria will be on the basis of: Conceptual Creativity, Use of Light, Artistic Merit and Unique style.
Carrie Leigh’s NUDE Magazine, often described by top professional and fine-art photographers as the “Gold Standard” in photography publications, is distributed throughout North America through Barnes and Noble, Borders, Chapters, Joseph Beth, and Hastings, along with other book and magazine stores. NUDE is also distributed in half a dozen foreign countries, with several more countries to be added in 2010.
