Following last year’s successful AuthentiCity photo competition, Illy Issimo and SVA have announced the 2011 edition: New Urban Lifestyles. Open to all students and alumni from the BFA Photography Department; MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department; and MPS Digital Photography Department, entrants should submit work (up to 10 images) that addresses the theme “New Urban Lifestyles” to callforentry.org by Monday, February 28.
Three finalists will be selected from these entrants to receive a commission of $3,000 each to complete a body of work over the spring/summer that further addresses the theme of the contest. A selection of the finalists’ work will be exhibited in New York City in the fall of 2011. One finalist will be selected based upon his or her completed work and will receive a $10,000 commission from Illy.
