All About Photo (FL), International Call for Photographers: All About Photo Award 2017 – The Mind’s Eye
Deadline: January 31st, 2017, 11:59pm MST
From their call: To take photographs means to recognize – simultaneously and within a fraction of a second – both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one’s head, one’s eye and one’s heart on the same axis. ~Henri Cartier-Bresson
Our second edition of the All About Photo Awards invites photographers from around the world to submit their best work for consideration. In reference to Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photo essay, The Mind’s Eye investigates the depth and thoughts behind each image.

The grand prize is $10,000, the 2nd prize is $2,000, the 3rd prize is $1,500, the 4th prize is $1,000 and the 5th prize is $500! All winners will have their work published/showcased on Lenscratch, ViewFind, Be-Art Magazine, Daylighted and All About Photo in 2017.
