Surface magazine announces a nationwide search for the best emerging fashion photographers to showcase in Surface’s Annual Avant Guardian issue and travelling exhibition. The Avant Guardian project has launched numerous photographic careers over the years. Now it is time to launch yours. Please note that the competition is only open for photographers working or studying in the US and Canada and who have not published a fashion editorial before 2006.
The project has launched many photographic careers and has provided the exposure that has led to professional representation, editorial projects for Surface and other magazines, and campaigns, and gallery shows. One of last years finalist, Kurt Iswarienko, won a PDN award this year for Avant Guardian story.
