The Sublime Landscape
Territory: Worldwide
Theme(s): The Sublime Landscape
Eligibility: All entrants must be 18 years of age or older
Entry: $35.00
Prize: Exhibition
The sublime landscape is defined as having the quality of such greatness, magnitude or intensity, whether physical, metaphysical, moral, aesthetic or spiritual, that our ability to perceive or comprehend it is temporarily overwhelmed. According to aesthetic philosophy, sublime landscapes can include any of five visual components: 1) great ideas, 2) passion, 3) the appropriate use of figures, 4) the right aesthetic diction, and 5) a skillful composition.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic artwork that explores the many iterations of this idea. We encourage a broad, interpretive, and personal investigation of the sublime landscape. All capture types, genres, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Juror: Laura Valenti

Laura Valenti is the founder of Light Atlas Creative, an online platform for transformative photography education. She teaches interactive e-courses, supports emerging photographers in her creative mentoring program, speaks to photo groups, and curates exhibitions for galleries and photo festivals around the world. At core, her work is about helping her students find their true voice as artists, so they can make their most personal, meaningful, and wholehearted work.

Laura has been a photographer, curator, arts director, and educator for about 20 years. She worked for 15 years in the nonprofit art world, most recently as Outreach Director at Photolucida – an organization that works to build connections between photographers and the gallery and publishing worlds. Before that, she was Program Director and co-Curator at Newspace Center for Photography, where she also taught black-and-white darkroom. She often serves as a professional reviewer at various portfolio review events, where she helps photographers fine-tune their vision and promote their work with more confidence.

Thirty images will be selected by the juror for exhibition at Praxis Gallery. A Juror’s Choice and two Honorable Mentions will be awarded by the juror and featured in the exhibition, the printed show catalog and the online show gallery. Award winners will receive a free show catalog. The Directors Choice Award will be given to the artist with the strongest series of images submitted and will have their work featured at praxisgallery.com.
