Juror: Joyce Tenneson
Deadline: March 12, 2018
Exhibition prints deadline: April 20, 2018
Gallery exhibition: May 2 – May 26, 2018
For this exhibition we seek images that will contribute to a mosaic of what it means to be female: the mystery, the diversity, the enduring and the changeable. Photographs of women of any age are encouraged that reveal aspects of the feminine core—its physicality, emotional complexity, strength and vulnerability, and unique place in humanity.
Any capture or process is welcome.
We are immensely pleased that Joyce Tenneson will be jurying and curating this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 35 for our Online Gallery Annex. The recipients of the Juror’s Award and the Director’s Award will each be entitled to a personal portfolio review by Ms. Tenneson.

Enter up to five photographs for $35, $6 for each additional.
“Every so often an artist comes along who defies the easy labeling that curators and critics feel obliged to stick on everything under their rapacious gaze. In spite of lacking obvious inspirations and role models, these artists manage to create deeply felt, radical works that an extraordinary number of viewers respond to with fervor and pleasure.”
Karl-Peter Gottschalk, photography critic, on Joyce Tenneson
Internationally lauded as one of the most influential photographers of her generation, Joyce Tenneson has been published in books and major magazines, and exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. Her portraits have appeared on covers for magazines such as: Time, Life, Newsweek, Premiere, Esquire and The New York Times Magazine.
Vicki Goldberg, critic and author, writes of Tenneson: “Tenneson possesses a unique vision which makes her photographs immediately recognizable. She creates enigmatic and sensuous images that are timeless and haunting.”
Tenneson is the author of sixteen books including the best seller, Wise Women, which was featured in a six-part Today Show series. She is the recipient of many awards, including Fine Art Photographer of the Year in 2005 (Lucie Awards), and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Professional Photographers of America in 2012. In a poll conducted by American Photo Magazine, readers voted Tenneson among the ten most influential women in the history of photography. In the Fall of 2014, Fotografiska Museum, in Stockholm, Sweden, mounted a large retrospective of her work which was seen by approximately 30,000 people. Tenneson’s work has been exhibited in museums around the globe and is part of many private and public collections.
