The ArtHaus Photo Essay
A Grand Prize of $3000US will be awarded to an MPA Photographer of the Year - the entire judging panel will determine the winner based upon the complete body of work submitted. This means that one picture will not win, a photographer with a consistent vision, style and message will instead be criteria upon which a winner will be determined. The Grand Prize also includes 365 POSTAGRAM postcards (a year’s worth!), a CanvasPop gift certificate, an Olloclip mobile phone lens attachment, the complete Nik Software desktop photo editing suite, and more.
Winners and runners-up in every category will be included on the exclusive MPA gallery tour - you will have the opportunity to expose your work to the art buying public and will recieve a print of your image following the exhibits.
In addition, winners in every category will also receive an OlloClip lens attachment, 10 Postagram postcard credits, a CanvasPop gift card, a feature showcase on the MPA blog and on LifeinLofi.
