TELL US A STORY – 2009
Deadline April 16th: Valuable Prizes, Impressive Judges, Incredible Way to Showcase Work
NEW YORK, NY, MARCH 26, 2009â€”The Advertising Photographers of America, New York (APA) announces its second annual Tell Us A Story Photo Competition, which officially kicks off March 25th. The competition offers photographers a great way to showcase their work and win regional recognition from leaders in the photographic and advertising industry. APA welcomes your submissions via online entry at www.apany.com/contest beginning March 25th; the deadline for entries is April 16th.
Great images cast the photographer as storyteller, sometimes acting as documentarian, sometimes a manipulator of the truth. Whether itâ€™s fact or fiction, photography and the tradition of storytelling walk hand in hand.
This spring, enter your finest photo story – whether itâ€™s a single image or a series – and get your work seen by our esteemed panel of jurors. One grand-prize winner will be chosen from each the Professional and Student categories. Jurorâ€™s Selection honors will also be awarded to several standout entries. The winning work will be showcased in a stunning printed book, which will be distributed to leading NYC advertising agencies. The winners will be announced on April 28th, 2009.
APA|NY also invites you to join us for a celebratory book launch event in honor of the 2009 competition winners (party will take place in May 2009, location and exact date TBD).
The two competition categories are: Professional and Student. Single image entries and series of two to three images may be entered. The entry fee is $25 per single image for APA members/$35 for non-members; the series entry fee is $45 per series for APA members/$55 for non-members.
