For 28 years, photo l.a. has celebrated and brought together the photography and arts community. It is with this mission that we present a biannual photography competition to help provide emerging and mid career artists/photographers opportunities to broaden their career opportunities and promote their work on a platform in which to promote their winning work within the photo l.a. network. Through our long-established partnerships with world-renowned photography art galleries, art fairs, museums, and publications, winners of past competitions have been picked up by international galleries and magazines, expanding their art career.
"Being a FOCUS photo l.a. finalist gave me the opportunity to have my work displayed and seen by hundreds of photo-centric attendees at the important yearly event. That kind of publicity is worth more than any trophy or certificate. And the PR continues with the images presented again at other venues."
