"I was thrilled to have my work shown in FOCUS photo l.a. this past winter (2016). It's a special feeling that the judges Charlotte Cotton, Nicholas Fahey, and and Wendy Posner– all of whom I have a lot of respect for– felt my work was worthy to be included. Meeting some of the other artists was a special treat as well!"
Doug Fogelson, finalist Winter 2016
For 27 years photo l.a. has celebrated and brought together the photography and arts community. It is with this mission in mind that we have presented a photo competition to help provide emerging and mid career artists/photographers opportunities to broaden their career opportunities and promote their work.
Through our long established partnerships with world-renowned photography galleries, art fairs, museums, and publications, winners of past competitions have been picked up by international galleries, magazines, and have expanded their career opportunities.
