The Art of Photography Show is an established and critical force in the world of contemporary photography. Now in its 8th year, this presentation of world class photography is truly exquisite. The show provides tangible benefits to artists trying to break into the public eye. This well thought out international exhibition provides value to artists at every turn, from first-rate viewing in the judging process to exhibition and publication opportunities, photo industry connections and monetary awards.

Our Judges:
One of the distinguishing characteristics of this competition and exhibition is that our judge is always a highly acclaimed museum curator. It's our view that getting one's photographs exhibited in a museum is the ultimate goal. Yet, getting exposed to museum curators is normally very difficult. Our project provides that opportunity. Here is a list of our judges so far:
  • Anne Lyden - Associate Curator of Photography at the J. Paul Getty Museum
  • Arthur Ollman - Director of the Museum of Photographic Arts
  • Natasha Egan - Associate Director and Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Photography
  • Neal Benezra - Director of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
  • Charlotte Cotton - Director of Photography at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
  • Hugh Davies - Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego
  • Tim Wride - Director of Photography at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
  • Carol McCusker - Curator of Photography at the Museum of Photographic Arts
  • (Note: All titles are as of the time of judging)
Our goal is to provide as many tangible benefits as possible for the exhibiting artists. The cash awards, accolades, media coverage and sales revenue that we provide to the artists who are selected are substantial. You can read many testimonials from artists in our previous shows here.

  • A superb 76 page show catalog will be given to everyone at the Opening Reception Gala and is made available for free at each special event during the exhibition.
  • We sell a very large percentage of the work, of which the artists receive most of the revenue.
  • We donate 100% of our portion of the art sales revenue to the San Diego Art Institute.
Marketing and Promotion:
  • Marketing and promotion for the Art of Photography Show is extensive, with national media coverage, cross-promotions, coverage on television and radio, as well as reaching thousands of fans and friends on social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  • Invitations and numerous emails are sent to our list of 25,000 luxury consumers and art collectors.
  • Tens of thousands of exhibition announcement cards about the Art of Photography Show are distributed to major cities across the US.
Our great love of this art form prompts us to 'pull out all of the stops' in order to showcase a truly excellent presentation of photography, to provide substantial benefits to the exhibiting artists, and to elevate and promote this art form.
