ONWARD Compé 2014 is an international photography competition for emerging photographers. The exhibition of selected photographers’ images culminates in the ONWARD Summit, an annual photography festival held in Philadelphia. ONWARD Compé has an open theme, accepting submissions of any photographic medium (including, but not limited to, historical processes, traditional silver printing, chromogenic printing, and digital processes) for consideration
Juried each year by a leading figure in contemporary photography, ONWARD Compé spotlights new, envelope-pushing work that continues to further the medium. This year’s guest juror is renowned photographer Andrew Moore. Now in its seventh year, Compé has solidified its standing as a highly respected international competition, drawing submissions from across the U.S. and around the globe. The competition seeks to increase the exposure of talented image-makers, create outlets for artists’ work, and present compelling photographs in a cohesive and well-curated exhibition.
Compé and Summit are two prongs of ONWARD, a multifaceted photography happening that encompasses a photography festival in Philadelphia, an international competition, Galerie, an online gallery featuring selected photographers, and Workshops for discerning photographers.
