Savannah’s A-Town Get Down Festival has announced the details of the 2018 Helen Levitt Photography Contest. Both amateur and professional photographers are invited to freely interpret the theme ‘Contemporary Life in America.’ Participants are encouraged to submit between three and six photos starting January 15, 2018. The deadline for entries is March 23, 2018.
Winners of the contest will receive cash prizes ranging from $50 to $250, as well as being featured in Aint-Bad Magazine, an independent publisher of new photographic art, and a solo exhibit in a Savannah gallery.
Established in 2014, the Helen Levitt Photography Prize is a competition that recognizes and awards contemporary American photography and is overseen by the Alex Townsend Memorial Foundation and the A-Town Get Down Foundation.
The annual contest was named after the iconic photographer, Helen Levitt, who was a pioneer of street photography. Her work focused heavily on the bustle, squalor and beauty of everyday life in New York City.
The A-Town Get Down Festival is an annual arts and music festival that takes places every spring in Savannah, Georgia. The hands-on, interactive festival offers the opportunity for artists and musicians of all ages and level of experience to share inspiration, encouragement, and support for one another and the Savannah community.
