Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

Mainland

Mainland The genre of landscape photography is as varied as the earth itself. Untouched wilderness offers as much rich photographic material as manicured parks and farms. From mountains to coastlines, desert to tundra, our relationship with the land is complex and personal. For Mainland, The Kiernan Gallery seeks photographs that examine the wide variety in climate, topography, and development on our planet.

Juried by Stella Kramer a Pulitzer Prize-winning photo editor and creative strategist who works one-on-one with photographers to help them strengthen their creative eye, put together the strongest portfolios and websites that reflect their work, and set a course to reach their professional goals.

Her work involves in-depth critiques and positive encouragement, while working with photographers to tell their story, look at their work in a new way, and shape their portfolio and website to attract interest from potential clients.

Stella has worked on many of the major news events in recent history, serving as the photo editor for The New York Times series “Portraits of Grief” memorializing those who lost their lives in the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Her work as part of the that team won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service and the 2002 Infinity Award for Public Service from the International Center of Photography.  She was also part of the team at The New York Times that won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography.

As a photo editor Stella has worked at The New York Times, People, Sports Illustrated, Newsweek, Entertainment Weekly and other top magazines.

Stella has curated photography for the South Street Seaport Museum and the Museum of the City of New York, and for the Griffin Museum of Photography and Fraction magazine online. She also lectures, reviews portfolios all over the country and teaches at SVA in New York and in Caracas, Venezuela.
