Since their inception, the New York Photo Awards have consistently surpassed all expectations in terms of the quality, reach, and number of submissions received (over 3,000 submissions and 15,000 images were received last year, from more than 90 countries worldwide).
The mission of the New York Photo Awards is to give visual artists the opportunity to reach key decision makers in the photographic community and the editorial, fine art, and commercial worlds and to honor talented photographers from all over the world whose exceptional work breaks new ground visually, intellectually, and aesthetically.
The New York Photo Awards Ceremony is scheduled to return to St. Ann’s Warehouse on Friday, May 14, 2010, 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. Twelve major awards will be publicly presented to the Award Winners, and 24 artists will receive Honorable Mention certificates. In addition to the New York Photo Awards ceremony, and an online feature presentation on the New York Photo Festival website, their work will be showcased in a group exhibition during next year’s edition of the New York Photo Festival.
