The 11th Annual National Alternative Processes Competition presents the winning images of photographers from across the United States. The images submitted for this competition utilized a wide range of alternative methods, including ambrotype, cyanotype, Van Dyke brown, platinum/palladium, photogravure, salt print, tintype, and wet-plate collodion, among others.
The juror for the 11th Annual Alternative Processes Competition was Joni Sternbach, a visiting artist at Cooper Union and a faculty member at both the International Center for Photography and the Center for Alternative Photography.
“I had the pleasure of reviewing a stellar number of excellent photographs for this year’s competition. What we typically think of as ‘alternative processes’ now encompasses so many new techniques, concepts and materials, including digital, than ever before. The photography playing field is wide open and this year’s exhibition reveals the flexibility and range of the medium.”
After reviewing almost 840 images, the juror selected the following artists to participate in the exhibit. First, second and third placement as well as honorable mentions were made by the juror on November 2nd and are posted below.
