Photography contests seem to be a dime a dozen these days, what with social networks making the whole process astoundingly easier, and the Bottega Veneta New Exposure contest is another to add to the growing list. This particular photo challenge was created in collaboration with a slew of organizations: the International Center of Photography (ICP), AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA), MILK, Digital Red Camera and Vogue.
With the goal to find emerging talent -- more specifically, "extraordinary and undiscovered photographers" -- the Bottega Veneta New Exposure contest is the first of what is to become an annual event, and it invites aspiring photographers to submit their work for a chance to win an amazing prize. The prize package includes $10,000, a 1-year mentorship with the photography agency Management Artists and a RED Epic-X camera package, as well as the opportunity to photograph a project for Bottega Veneta, describes Popsop.
Although 10 photos have already been selected for further judging, you can still visit Bottega Veneta's Facebook page to vote for your favorite one.
