More information and entry at The Halide Project

The Halide Project was founded in 2015 to support the continued practice and appreciation of traditional and historic photographic processes. Based in Philadelphia, The Halide Project serves local and global communities by providing exhibition opportunities, educational programming, and other resources. We enthusiastically invite practitioners of chemistry-based photography from around the world to submit work to be considered for Living Image 2019 as a means to share their work with others and connect with like-minded artists.

Living Image showcases contemporary artists working in traditional and historic photographic techniques. Selected works will be included in an exhibition held at The Halide Project gallery in Philadelphia and published in a printed catalog to accompany the exhibition. All selected artists will receive a copy of the catalog, with additional copies available for a donation.

One Grand Prize winner will be selected to receive a $250 cash prize along with the opportunity to show a body of work in The Halide Project’s annual small group invitational exhibition, slated for Spring 2020.

Additional sponsored prizes include:

The Photo Review Prize – one work will be selected for publication in The Photo Review by editor Stephen Perloff, and the selected artist will receive a two-year subscription to the publication.

The Artblog Prize – one artist will be selected for mention in the online art publication Artblog, and will receive an Artblog tote bag.

The Indie Photo Prize – one Philadelphia-area artist will be awarded with a $25 Indie Photo Lab Gift Certificate.
