Announcement: APA/NY Portfolio Review + the 2006 APA National Photo Competition
For more than five years I’ve been a member of the Advertising Photographers of America’s NY chapter (APA/NY). As you might expect, the group is made up primarily of photographers who specialize in advertising and editorial work. The APA has regional chapters across the USA and there are many benefits of membership. For example, the APA/NY chapter regularly organizes workshops and photographer lectures at places such as the Apple Store in Soho, NYC, and they are running a very special portfolio review event during advertising week this year in New York City (9/26-27, 2006). I’ve also had the opportunity to speak on the topic of inkjet printing for the New York and Atlanta chapters, both of which were great experiences.
The 2006 APA National Photo Competition with the theme: Show Off! You Know You Want To is accepting entries until 9/22/2006. A very impressive list of judges will choose the winners, in categories ranging from Advertising to Student and Personal/Fine Art.
Winners will receive prizes including: a digital darkroom with a Mac Pro and Cinema display: liveBooks Folio 5.0 packages; Canon EOS 30D Digital SLR 8.2 Megapixel Camera; Fuji FinePix F30 Cameras; Adobe Photoshop CS2; Blinkbid estimating and invoicing software; a one year membership to Digital Railroad; and AsukaBooks of winning images. Winners will also be showcased in the APA online Winners Gallery and at the APAâ€™s booth at Photo Plus Expo in November. For more information, visit APA National’s website.
