Hello loyal Photography Contest entrants!
Focal Press has a new home! We are now part of the Taylor & Francis Group, and with our move, we thought it was high time we did a little updating to the monthly photo contest.
First things first: the July and August photo contest are going to be a bit different as we test out two new platforms. Both the July and August contests will last two weeks — July 15-July 31 and Aug 1-Aug 15. The regular monthly contest – new and improved – will launch as scheduled on September 1st.
The July contest will be Urban Decay Photography, judged by J. Dennis Thomas, author of our upcoming book on urban decay photography. This is an extra special contest because Denny is going to choose up to ten images to actually be published in the book! Stay tuned for details on where and how to enter. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter or join our Flickr group!
The August contest will be Travel Photography, judged by Haje Jan Kamps, author of several Focal titles, including the upcoming Focus On Travel Photography and The Rules of Photography and How to Break Them, both due out this Fall.
Secondly, we want YOUR feedback, our loyal, awesome entrants who make the contest what it is. Click here to fill out a very brief survey about the contest – the first of several surveys we’ll be running as we update the contest. You can also email additional feedback to me directly at any time — Kate.Iannotti@taylorandfrancis.com.
