2010 Emerging Pro Landing Page

Pros Of The Future

This year, we took a different tack with our annual Emerging Professional Photo Competition by having all of the submissions online only. The response was overwhelming. In total, we received more than 8,000 images spread out over the three categories, Fine Art, Fashion and Beauty, and Photojournalism and Sports. Thanks to the support of our sponsors, Canon and Datacolor, the Grand Prize winner takes home a $10,000 cash prize, and each First Place winner receives $1,000. Additionally, we made three finalist galleries. To sort through the high caliber of images, we enlisted the help of a diverse group of judges. (see their full bios).
