The Arnold Newman Prize for New Directions in Photographic Portraiture is awarded annually to a photographer whose work demonstrates a compelling new vision in the genre of portraiture. The $20,000 prize is designed to assist the winner in continuing the pursuit of their work and to serve as a launching pad for the next phase of their career.
Established in 2009, this prestigious prize honors Arnold’s lasting contributions to the fields of portraiture and teaching. It is generously funded by the Arnold & Augusta Newman Foundation and proudly administered by Maine Media Workshops + College, where Arnold taught for more than 30 years. This year’s call for entries will be open from June 12, 2017- (DEADLINE EXTENDED) Nov. 17, 2017 at 11:59pm EST.
In addition to the winner, the jurors will also select three finalists for the 2018 Arnold Newman Prize. The winner and finalists will be officially announced in 2018 and celebrated in New York City.
