Music photography has changed over the years. Musicians are much more protective of their image and restrictions apply at almost every touring rock show. Barriers have been set making it much more difficult to capture the “Decisive moment.” That being said, a great music photograph stands out by showing the viewer the personality of the subject. A moment captured by a photographer is a moment in time captured forever, document the history of an art form.  - Juror, Paul Natkin

This call for entry focuses on the depiction of inanimate subject matter, traditionally referred to as still life. More than other genres of photography, still life gives photographers greater latitude in achieving their final vision through the arrangement of objects and composition of design elements. Juror Russell Joslin also welcomes entries that expand or challenge what “still life” photography is, or can be. For more information and to submit online click here

In American Splendor, Rich Frishman engages in exploring the pre-apocalyptic vernacular landscape of the United States. He imagined himself an archaeologist documenting the future remains of a lost civilization, filled with remnants of the sublime and mundane. There is a curious beauty to the commonplace, a heightened sense of grandeur at the intersection of the natural and the human landscape. Learn more
