The Art of Documentary Photo Contest
This is the third SDN Call for Entries. The theme this year is The Art of Documentary. The winners will be exhibited at the New York Photo Festival, May 16-20, in Dumbo, New York. The theme, The Art of Documentary, is paralleling the theme of the 2012 New York Photo Festival, “The matrix of art photography and social documentary.”
SocialDocumentary.net, from its beginning in 2008, has been committed to featuring the finest of documentary photography to explore themes of the human condition. In all work accepted to the SDN website, form and content must work together to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Fundamentally, isn’t this what art is?
Entries to this competition should focus on photography that is founded in the traditions of fine art to give us insight into the underlying content of the image. In one sense, this is what all work on SDN should be. But now we are asking of you to pay particular attention to this and submit work that you think makes a case that the formal qualities of the image are essential to communicating the underlying content.
