Juror: Peter Barberie, Curator of Photographs, Philadelphia Museum of Art

The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is excited to announce A Love Supreme, 2nd Annual Contemporary Photography Competition and Exhibition. This year’s title refers to the dramatic transformation in John Coltrane’s creative process and sound in his legendary recording. Moving away from jazz standards to a spiritual and instinctual way of making…music, Coltrane forever changed his medium. In this spirit, today’s photographers are creating new visual languages, pushing the medium in unprecedented and unpredictable ways, forever changing how we define photography.

Winning entries will be exhibited at PPAC from June 9 – August 27, 2011 and will be included in the exhibition catalog. First, second, and third prize winners will receive $500, $200, and $100 in cash prizes plus a $50 gift certificate for PPAC’s digital services. The competition is open to all subject matter and photographic processes. Work must have been created in the last 3 years. The entry fee is $40 for a maximum of 5 images. Enhanced lab members of PPAC do not need to send entry fee. Entry fees are non refundable. All entries must be delivered or postmarked by Tuesday, May 10th, 2011.
