EMERGING FOCUS BARCELONA: INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION
***Competition Closing Sunday April 27, 2014***
The next edition of the Emerging Focus International Photography Competition - EMERGING FOCUS Barcelona - is here. Proudly sponsored by photo l.a.
and Le Meridien Barcelona
, and open to all international artists ages 13 and older.
Each year, our Top Finalists are given the opportunity to truly break into the world of Fine Art Photography with momentum, emerging from anonymity and placed directly into the world of top-notch, elite Fine Art Photography. In partnership with the world-renowned Los Angeles International Photographic Art Exposition, photo l.a., winners of past Emerging Focus competitions have been picked up by galleries, museums, international magazines, and more.
This year, our finalists will be transported into the heart of the European art scene, and will be exhibited both nationally (at photo l.a. 2015
), and internationally at the Appartshowroom
gallery in the heart of Barcelona, Spain. One Grand Prize Winner will receive a trip to Barcelona for 4 nights on behalf of Le Meridien Barcelona, to be on-site for the Emerging Focus Barcelona Grand Opening Reception, to meet with Spanish gallery owners and media outlets, and to take advantage of the incredible photo opportunities that the city itself presents on a special VIP photo-based tour of Barcelona's most inspiring sites, complete with Spanish food tastings at some of the most authentic eateries in the city.
One Grand Prize Winner from EMERGING FOCUS Barcelona will receive a 4-night stay at Le Meridien Barcelona
. Perfectly positioned for discovering the rich artistic heritage represented by Barcelona’s museums, music and architecture, Le Meridien is located on the city’s most famous street, Las Ramblas. With examples of Gaudi’s architecture, the Liceo Opera House, MACBA, and the Gothic Quarter – all main attractions – within walking distance of the hotel, our Grand Prize Winner will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the local culture, and to capture the elements of this truly unique city through their own lens.
