2019 Photo Review 35th International Photography Competition
Noted critic, curator, and writer Lyle Rexer will be the juror for the 2019 Photo Review Photography Competition. He is the author of several books on art and photography, including The Edge of Vision: The Rise of Abstraction in Photography (2009) andPhotography’s Antiquarian Avant Garde: the New Wave in Old Processes (2002). In addition, he has published numerous catalogue essays and articles on art, architecture, and photography and contributed to such publications as The New York Times, Art in America, Aperture, Parkett, BOMB, and DAMn. As a curator, he has organized exhibitions in the United States and internationally, most recently The Edge of Vision, a selection of contemporary abstract photography. He teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York and is a columnist for Photograph magazine.
The Photo Review, a highly acclaimed critical journal of photography, is sponsoring its 35th annual photography competition with a difference. Instead of only installing an exhibit that would be seen by a limited number of people, The Photo Review will reproduce accepted entries in its 2018 competition issue and on its website. Thus, the accepted photographs will be seen by thousands of people all across the world and entrants will have a tangible benefit from the competition. Also, the prize-winning photographers will be chosen for an exhibition at the photography gallery of The University of the Arts, Philadelphia. Plus numerous Editor’s Selections will be exhibited in several Photo Review web galleries. Check out additional prizes below and on the competition website.
Because their work was seen in The Photo Review, past winners have been given one-person exhibitions, have had their work reproduced in other leading photography magazines, and have sold their work to collectors throughout the country.
