Hey, Hot Shot! offers photographers at all stages of their careers unrivaled opportunities for exposure and advancement. All entrants have their work reviewed by top-shelf panelists and enjoy the potential to be promoted online, selected for 20×200, and exhibited in our New York gallery. Now in its fifth year, the competition has been acclaimed by curators, critics, educators and journalists alike.
The guidelines are simple: contenders submit three photographs from a single body of work using an online upload tool, with an entry fee of $60.
Our panel will select five Hot Shots for inclusion in a two-week group show at Jen Bekman Gallery in New York City. In conjunction with the exhibition, editions of each photographer’s work will be released on 20×200, Jen Bekman Projects’ acclaimed online endeavor, which offers limited edition prints at affordable prices.
Each Hot Shot is awarded a $500 honorarium. (Nice!)
At year’s end, two Ultras will be selected from 2009’s ten Hot Shots. The Ultras are represented by Jen Bekman Gallery and slated for solo exhibitions.
All entrants are reviewed for participation in 20×200; entering the competition is the only opportunity for photographers to have their work considered. In addition, as always, our writers will select contenders to feature daily on the Hey, Hot Shot! blog throughout the entry period.
We only accept submissions online, via this website.
The deadline for entries is Friday, October 23, 2009 @ 8 p.m (EDT).
Hot Shots will be announced on Monday, November 30, 2009.
There is a $60 handling fee for your entry.
Submissions are open to everyone, from anywhere in the world!
