INFOCUS Sidney Zuber Photography Award

2287 INFOCUS, the photography support organization of Phoenix Art Museum, is calling for entries for the first INFOCUS Sidney Zuber Award. The award will be granted biennially to an emerging or early career photographer who demonstrates artistic promise. The competition is open to photographers who are residents of the United States, working in all photographic media and styles.

The competition will be judged by three curators including Rebecca Senf, the Norton Family Curator at Phoenix Art Museum; Joshua Chuang, Chief Curator at the Center for Creative Photography; and a third juror to be announced. Jurors will select one photographer as the INFOCUS Sidney Zuber Award winner, and may identify one or more additional artists for Honorable Mention.

Applicants are required to submit a brief artist’s statement which includes the URL for the applicant’s website.

Artists may submit up to five images. The jurors will consider submitted images and the artist’s statement in choosing the winning artist, and may also consult the applicant’s website, if applicable. Entries must be submitted digitally via the CaFÉ website and payment of the $25 entry fee must be processed through CaFÉ. Although the entry must be a digital representation, the artwork itself may exist in another medium, such as a print on paper or one or more physical objects. INFOCUS will mat and frame up to five works by the winning artist; if artists recognized for Honorable Mention want to have their pictures exhibited, they will be responsible for matting and framing their own work for display. Applicants may only enter the competition once, with a limit of five images.
The CaFÉ Website is the exclusive method of entry.
