KL Photoawards 2010

A little more than a year ago, the KL Photoawards was launched as a competition to scour the globe for contemporary portrait photography. Time passes so quickly and they’re back once again. The competition is open to both amateurs and professionals, although they have removed the professional category this time round.

Here are the contest details:
Portrait Open (Individual)
USD$ 10 per image up to 8 images
1st USD$ 2,500
2nd USD$ 1,250
3rd USD$ 700

Portrait Open (Stories)
USD $50 per entry minimum 5 images, up to 8, and a 250-word narrative to accompany
1st USD$ 2,500
2nd USD$ 1,250
3rd USD$ 700

All prizewinners will also receive the Analogue/Digital Man Trophy, a specially commissioned sculptor from British artist Matt Richards. Winners will also receive a 1 year’s subscription to ArtMalaysia magazine.

For the first time, all main prize winners will be invited to enroll in the KL Photoawards Professional Photographic Development Program.

The contest will be launched next week on Dec 1, online submissions begin on Mar 1 and ends on Mar 31. Finalists will be announced in April and prize winners in May. Check out the website for more details.
