Sixth Annual Emerging Professional Photo Competition
Thanks to generous sponsorship from Sony and Epson, the 2012 Emerging Pro contest was a huge success. We received thousands of submissions from emerging professionals throughout the U.S. in each of the categories, Fashion & Beauty, Fine Art and Photojournalism & Sports. On these pages, we showcase the winners and honorable mentions. Congratulations to all of the winners!
“Love doesn’t grow on trees like apples in Eden—it’s something you have to make. And you must use your imagination too.” This quote by Joyce Cary strongly connects to the theme of “Testing Boundaries” by making us aware that seeing new perspectives of our world and how we interact within it are important aspects of life. Limits only exist for the simple-minded, and our imaginations have no boundaries.
I shot this photograph with a Nikon D300S using an 18-200mm lens and a Lumedyne light with a transparent umbrella on Mount Airy, near Goat Hill Overlook, in Lambertville, New Jersey.
