Below is the information and forms to apply for the Olympus InVision College Photography Contest

October 12, 2013 – December 8, 2013
ArtsQuest is hosting its 4th annual Olympus InVision Photography Festival on Nov. 1-3, 2013. InVision is a festival highlighting nationally and internationally known photographers as well as emerging artists. During the festival photographers from all over the tri-state area and beyond come together to enjoy a weekend of workshops, lectures, exhibition openings, and more! An integral part of the festival again this year is the annual College Photography Competition Exhibition.
This exhibition in our Hallway to the Arts is a special juried exhibition highlighting the artistic talents of students currently enrolled in college. This exhibition is an excellent opportunity for students to exhibit their works in a professional setting.
Our Artist-in-Residence this year is award-winning, international photographer Eugene Richards. Richards is a photographer, writer, and filmmaker. Richard’s photography and writing has appeared in major magazines worldwide including LIFE, the New York Times Magazine, Esquire, the New Yorker, Mother Jones, National Geographic, and the Nation. He is perhaps best known for the fifteen books he has published. He has received several awards and honors including a Guggenheim Fellowship, the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Award, and several National Endowment for the Arts grants. His photographs have been exhibited in more than forty solo shows in the U.S. and abroad, including the International Center of Photography in New York, VIA pour l’Image in Perpignan, and Les Rencontres d’Arles Photographie.
Richards will judge the works in order to choose the award winners and those works to be included in the exhibition. The final decision regarding the suitability of all artwork included in the exhibition will be made by the curator at the time of the installation.
