This is the seventh year of the EMERGE competition. We are looking to give one $250 EMERGE Fellowship Award and exhibition opportunities to emerging photographers. This fellowship opportunity is geared toward photographers looking to launch their art careers through the exposure of exhibition.

Professionally preparing a series of work, entering to galleries within the stated guidelines of gallery submissions and through subsequently building an exhibition record is a major and essential aspect of building a career in art photography.
Selection will be based upon the series of work submitted by each artist rather than solely on individual images. A brief artist statement is optional.
Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online. One recipient will be awarded the $250 EMERGE Fellowship Award, and receive one year artist representation by MWCP online.
