I suppose, at this point, you may be interested in who our esteemed judges are. Say no mas!
Judges for the event are Christy Karpinski, Creator and Editor of F-Stop Magazine; Rose Licavoli, Assistant Director at Schneider Gallery: Contemporary Photography; and Gregory Harris, Assistant Curator at DePaul Art Museum. Prizes include (gasp!) a year-long membership to the Museum of Contemporary Art, passes to Filter Photo Festival’s events, and more!
Again, registered photographers will receive approximately 4 feet of table space. Photographers may show as many projects as they would like to the general public and each other, but only one portfolio may be presented to the judges. Also, participants must show all three judges the same portfolio. Photographers will be expected to arrive and setup their portfolios between 1-1:30 PM on June 9th. Awards will be announced at 5PM!
And...to top it off....the four winning portfolios will receive a group exhibition at the Hairpin Arts Center! The exhibition will take place in late summer/early fall, with dates TBD!
Have questions? Email us at info@FilterFestival.com, where our team of trained circus chimps and seeing-eye dogs will be happy to help...or throw poop at you. They're really pretty temperamental.
