The New Orleans Photo Alliance (NOPA) has extended the deadline for submissions for the annual Clarence John Laughlin Award to July 27. The award was instituted by NOPA in 2010 to support the work of photographers who use the medium as a means of creative expression, and it honors the life and work of Clarence John Laughlin (1905-1985), a New Orleans photographer best known for his surrealist images of the American South.
The award is open to emerging and established photographers who reside in the U.S. The online application process requires a portfolio of 10-20 photographs, a written statement, a bio or CV, and a $25 application fee. NOPA will accept applications from June 1 to July 27, 2013. Finalists will be announced on August 20, 2013 and the winner on October 1, 2013.
The Clarence John Laughlin Award grants one $5,000 prize annually to a photographer whose work exhibits sustained artistic excellence and creative vision. Russell Lord, the Freeman Family Curator of Photographs at the New Orleans Museum of Art, will serve as this year’s juror.
