Carmel Art & Film Festival - Deadline!
I feel bad about not getting on top of this sooner, as proven by my own scrambling to get my own application in on time by the impending deadline (this one is by mail, folks and must be postmarked by September 5th).
The folks who run Artworks Magazine are putting on the first annual Carmel Art & Film Festival. There will be separate juried Art and Photography (sort of a funny distinction, but I guess we photogs have better chances that way) shows put on during the festival, with the photo show up from October 8-30th.
From the website:
Through a juried process, 50 artists will be selected for a month long exhibition at the Marjorie Evans Gallery at the Sunset Center in Carmel, California. Ten top winners from this group will be given a group show at the FARMANI Gallery, in New York City. One top winner will be featured in ARTWORKS Magazine.
Yes, Farmani as in the Lucie Awards and Photo LA. The jurors:
Hossein Farmani is the founder of the Lucie Foundation, and the The Lucie Awards recognizing excellence in photography. He also founded the International Photography Awards, Month of Photography L.A., and the non-profit Focus on AIDS Foundation, just to name a few. Hossein also owns one of the largest private collections of photography in the United States. His Marilyn Monroe collection has been a part of a traveling show that has toured the world.
Kim Weston is a third-generation member of one of the most important and creative families in photography. Weston has been a fine art photographer for 30 years specializing in large format photography. He learned his craft assisting his father, Cole, in the darkroom making gallery prints from his grandfather’s (Edward Weston) original negatives. Kim and his wife, Gina, often share their passion, artistry and unique photographic vision at workshops held at Edward Weston’s former home.
Bruce Haley is the recipient of the Robert Capa Gold Medal, one of the most prestigious photography awards in the world. Haley received this honor for his coverage of Burma‘s bloody ethnic civil war. He was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize by the Baltimore Sun, for helping to break the story of the famine in Somalia. His clients include Time, Life, U.S. News and World Report, The London Sunday Times Magazine, Stern, Paris Match, GEO, Aperture, Esquire.
