Have the record low temperatures and mounting snow banks given you the winter blues? Perhaps it’s time to hunker down in front of your computer screen, select your best work to enter it in PDN’s Photo Annual. This is our biggest opportunity of the year and offers both professionals and students a chance for industry recognition and valuable prizes. In addition to the regular prizewinners, all student finalists have an added chance to win the Marty Forscher Fellowship, which awards a $1,500 cash prize to one student photographer for outstanding achievements in humanistic photography. Last year’s award, presented during a ceremony at the PDN Photo Annual party, went to Souvid Datta for his documentary series on the 2013 revolution in Egypt. All contest winners receive an invite to this exclusive party and will have his or her work published in June’s PDN Photo Annual issue. Students also benefit from a discounted entry fee of $35 for up to six images, with no limit to the number of entries you can submit. For an overview of last year’s student winners, click here for the 2014 Winners’ Gallery, then size up your best efforts, register here and upload your masterpieces before our final deadline on February 24.
