Take note of the extended deadline for the 2016 Pride Photo Award contest.
Pride Photo Award is an international photo contest for top quality photography about sexual and gender diversity. The contest deadline has been extended to Tuesday July 5th at midnight CEST. Contestants can register and submit their photos through the contest page of our website.
Please find the Call for Entries attached to this email. We would greatly appreciate it if you could place it on your website or social network profiles for extra exposure. We are grateful for any way in which you can help us reach as many photographers as possible!
For this year's edition photos can be submitted in four different categories: Single Images, Stories, an Open category and the 2016 theme category: Insiders/Outsiders. On the one hand, the 2016 theme is about communities: the groups of people you (want to) feel a part of, and the people you do or do not welcome in the communities you belong to. At the same time, the theme reflects both on the role of the photographer and the audience as an outsider (voyeur) or insider.
With kind regards,
The Pride Photo Award team

My name is Harriet and together with my college Tom Goldner we run Australian Photography Awards (APA), Australia's newest annual photography competition. I was given your email from Jack Jansen through Barry Feldman.
We are launching at the beginning of June and hence things are ramping up to launch date. We would love to advertise our completion to your members and let them know who we are.
Here is a little further info regarding our completion.
We feel photography is about being part of a bigger social movement. It's a powerful medium that plays an integral role in bringing people together and connecting our society. From ending wars to inspiring equality, history has shown us that the power of a great photograph can influence positive change. Australian Photography Awards is here to promote understanding, diversity & harmony amongst Australians and celebrate the great photography this country has to offer.
The core essence of our awards is to promote -
1. Social understanding.
2. Artistic excellence throughout Australia.
We are working with some social partners as well as having some great corporate sponsors on board headlined by our major sponsor Fujifilm Australia providing wonderful prizes for the winners.
I'd love to hear what your thoughts are regarding this.
