The Photo Review, a highly acclaimed critical journal of photography, is sponsoring its 23rd annual photography competition with a difference.

Thus, the accepted photographs will be seen by thousands of people all across the country. Also, the prize-winning photographers will be chosen for an exhibition at the photography gallery of The University of the Arts, Philadelphia, and will be exhibited on The Photo Review’s website. Awards include a Microtek ScanMaker i800 scanner, a $350 gift certificate from Calumet Photographic, a Lensbaby 3G Lens and Wide Angle / Telephoto kit ($359), two $100 gift certificates from Sprint Systems, a copy of DC Pro Studio scanning software from LaserSoft ($399 value), and $250 in cash prizes.

An entry fee of $30 for up to three prints, slides, or images on CD and $5 each for up to two additional images entitles all entrants to a copy of the catalogue. In addition, all entrants will be able to subscribe to The Photo Review for $34, a 20% discount.

All entries must be received by mail between May 1 and May 15, 2007.
