AuthentiCity Photo Contest Finalists Selected

May 25, 2011

Out of the over 200 submissions received for the 2011 AuthentiCity photo competition, a collaboration between SVA and Illy Issimo, three artists have been chosen by the jury as finalists: Phil Kline (MFA 2008 Photography, Video and Related Media); Jessica Miller (current student, MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department); and David Rapoport (MFA 2009 Photography, Video and Related Media).

The finalists have each received a prize of $3,000 along with a commission to develop a new body of work related to the theme “discovering new urban lifestyles.” The new work will be presented at the AuthentiCity exhibition which will be held at the SVA Gallery in July. The competition winner will be announced at the exhibition reception.
