Our juror this year, Miriam Leuchter, is Editor-in-Chief of both Popular Photography and American Photo Magazine.  She serves on the board of The Josephine Herrick Project, a nonprofit that enlists photographic community volunteers to educate students who have not had the opportunity to learn the communicative power of photography.  She has juried many international photography competitions, and her own work has been published and exhibited in magazines, newspapers and art galleries in the United States and Europe.
