Are you an avid photographer who thinks outside the box's box? Third Ward, Williamsburg's go-to resource for the creative design professional, recently announced their first-ever Open Call for photography. With a goal of finding the best new creative work from emerging photographers, the missive turns to photography's evolution as a catalyst, looking to its development from daguerreotypes to glass negatives and from Polaroid film to limitless digital shots.

The result will be a group exhibit of 26 winners with one first place award of $500 and a Third Ward Green Bike (a lime-colored single speed bike, custom designed in Brooklyn). All those featured in the group show at 3rd Ward's gallery will also be written up in their quarterly publication, receive a one-month basic membership with access to their four photo studios and gain citywide exposure through post cards, fliers and press.


Magnum photographer Peter van Agtmael, Sean Fader, who's a FIT Professor and one of Third Ward's Solo Show Artists (a similar competition-based exhibit) and Amani Olu, co-founder and executive director of Humble Arts Foundation, will judge the submissions.

Check out 3rd Ward for details. Submissions are accepted through 7 August 2009.
