New York Photo Festival 2009 (Lá Fora… 111)
Following the successful first year of the New York Photo Awards, the New York Photo Festival 2009 (NYPH’09) is proud to announce the kickoff of the New York Photo Awards 2009. In its inaugural year, the New York Photo Awards surpassed all expectations in terms of the quality, reach and number of submissions that were received (over 3,500 submissions and 15,000 images were received from 60+ countries worldwide). The New York Photo Awards Ceremony, a gala affair held at the world-renowned St. Ann’s Warehouse on the evening of May 16th, at the height of the New York Photo Festival 2008, was attended by more than 650 photographers and industry professionals, and reflected the passion and dedication of the international photographic community who came together to honor the year’s New York Photo Awards winners.
The New York Photo Awards 2009 will once again honor talented photographers from all over the world whose exceptional work breaks new grounds visually, intellectually and aesthetically. The Awards will give these visual artists the opportunity to reach key decision makers in the photographic community and the editorial, fine art and commercial worlds. Submissions will be accepted starting March 2nd through May 1st, 2009. The Award winners will be announced in May during the second edition of the Festival.
The New York Photo Awards Ceremony is scheduled to return to St. Ann’s Warehouse on Friday, May 15th 2009, starting at 8pm. The work of the Award Winners and Honorable Mentions will be presented on the big screen before a packed audience of industry luminaries. Fourteen major awards will be publicly presented to the Award Winners, and twenty-eight artists will receive Honorable Mention certificates.
All Award Winners and Honorable Mentions will enjoy unprecedented visibility for their work. In addition to the New York Photo Awards ceremony, their work will be showcased on the New York Photo Festival website, and published in leading photo magazines. These artists are also automatically eligible for inclusion in a beautifully produced New York Photo Awards Annual, available for purchase online through the New York Photo Festival website.
