Joy of Giving Something, Inc. (JGS) is accepting submissions to their quarterly, juried photography and video contest through March 31. Separate categories exist for artists and students. The contest was established to encourage photographers and videographers to share their unique artistic perspective. It is part of the Forward Thinking Museum, which is committed to providing access to engaging works of art for a wide audience and to fostering the creation of new art that is informed by the “forward thinking” mind.
The jurors for the artist level photography awards are: Willis E. Hartshorn (International Center of Photography), Karen Sinsheimer (Santa Barbara Museum of Art), and Kai McBride (Columbia University and Queens College). The full list of jurors or the list of previous winners is available online. JGS recently awarded its Annual $15,000 Artist Award to Marion Poussier, winner of the fourth quarter award in 2009.
