Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

Visual Culture Awards Int’l Call for Gallery Exhibition

tVCA_2010 tVCA 2009 is an international call for gallery exhibition at the CHARLESTON CENTER FOR PHOTOGRAPHY in Charleston, South Carolina, United States of America. The theme of this year’s call is, ‘Cultural Peace,’ and hopes to showcase your culture or a culture you have explored, in a positive or progressive Light.

The Visual Culture Awards formed in 2008 to coordinate intercultural understanding through gallery exhibition with a collection of photographers aiding photographers in the current season.

tVCA 2009 is about filling a gallery space for a solo exhibition at CCforP in the month of March, 2010.

Every single penny that comes in from the photographer’s entry fees, will go straight back into the awards for the photographers exhibited (minus 10% going to the charity FOTOKIDS GUATEMALA). This is the premise of tVCA, visual makers supporting visual makers.

There will be a local reception for the exhibited photographer (last year we had a full house; it was a great welcoming!), and an online gallery for further displays of excellence.

The jury will base their selections on the power of the image to move the photographic reader. You may submit fine art to documentary photography and anything in between or outside. What is it you want us to grapple at? What is it you want us to collectively memorize? What is it you want to share about the state of Life and the stilled movement of a culture?
