Loads and loads of things happened this week. The list might seem long but it’s worth the time, I promise.
- Not the Death of Photography, Just a Rebirth. Opinion on the mass democratization of photography by Lewis Bush. Compulsory, mostly for drama queens.
- LensCulture Exposure Award 2013 winners. My personal favourite is Yijun Liao’s Experimental Relationship. (Don’t forget to take a look at the finalists either, plenty of good stuff there.)
- Zilveren Camera 2013 nominees also announced. Rob Hornstra and Arnold van Bruggen will hopefully get the Canon Prijs for The Sochi Project—fingers crossed.
- Hungarian Press Photo 2013 public jury days (to be) finished today. My personal favourites are still in play, one of them below. Winners officially announced 23rd January.
- The Huge List of 2014 Photography Festivals. Impressive. I wish I could be there, everywhere.
- 2014 Photography Grants, Funds and Fellowships. Seriously, I owe these guys at Fotografia Magazine.
- Project Launch 2014. “The grant includes a cash award to help complete or disseminate the works as well as providing a platform for exposure and professional development opportunities.” Deadline: 22nd January, 2014
- Santa Fe Prize 2014. “The biennial Santa Fe Prize for Photography recognizes and supports a gifted and committed photographer who has completed, or is near completion of, a meaningful body of work.” Deadline: 22nd January, 2014
- Call for proposals for The Library Project Programme 2014. Deadline: 26th January, 2014, midnight
