Finalists will be exhibited both in Barcelona, Spain, and at photo l.a. 2015. The Grand Prize Winner will also be flown out to stay at the beautiful Le Méridien Barcelona for 4 nights. Each year, our Top 20 Finalists are given the opportunity to truly break into the world of Fine Art Photography with momentum by hosting a high-level exhibition of their work at photo l.a. This year, our Top 20 Finalists will be exhibited internationally: at a renowned gallery in Barcelona, Spain. One Grand Prize Winner will receive a trip to Barcelona to be on-site for the Emerging Focus Barcelona Grand Opening Reception.
The mandate of EMERGING FOCUS is simple: we are looking to spotlight the revolutionaries, the ground breakers, and the virtuosos of tomorrow’s photography world by focusing on them today. Our mission is to provide a platform for these artists to distinguish themselves and their work amongst all others, to exhibit their own photographs at a world-renowned art fair, and to allow them to discuss their approaches and their visions with the public.
Finalists in each EMERGING FOCUS [Competition] are given the rare opportunity to foster their relationships with the top level of national and international galleries, collectors, dealers, curators, and enthusiasts alike. We take our moniker seriously, and the winners of our competition have truly emerged from anonymity and entered into the heart of the Fine Art Photography industry with momentum. In addition to gaining public recognition through the EMERGING FOCUS exhibits at photo l.a., the competition gives photographers the chance to win prizes that have could potentially alter the course of their careers forever.
EMERGING FOCUS is presented by photo l.a., the longest-running Fine Art Photography exposition west of New York City. Each EMERGING FOCUS [Competition] is made possible by partnerships with The ICON Los Angeles (an unparalleled printing resource in Los Angeles for photographers, fine artists, and museums), and Fine Art Solutions (the leader in fine art framing in Los Angeles).
