Foto Forum Santa Fe is proud to announce an open call for our First Annual Foto Forum Santa Fe Photography Award, an international competition open to emerging and established artists. The selected photographer receives a two-month solo exhibition at our downtown Santa Fe gallery, located a short walk from the art hub surrounding SITE Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Railyard.
Foto Forum Santa Fe is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that creates an artistic space to explore the current relationship between photography, storytelling, science, and technology through artist exhibitions, workshops, visiting artist lectures, research, and community outreach. The Photography Award expands upon Foto Forum’s commitment to showcasing both contemporary work from established artists and giving opportunities for emerging photographers to find an audience.
This year’s juror is Harry Gamboa, Jr.
The First Annual Foto Forum Santa Fe Photography Award is accepting entries December 4, 2020 through May 3, 12 pm MST 2021, with results announced in early June, and the award-winner’s exhibition to open August 2, 2021.
