A new international, annual competition to launch in conjunction with the first ever New York Photo Festival, the New York Photo Awards, will honor talented photographers from all over the world whose exceptional work "breaks new grounds visually, intellectually and aesthetically." The awards will give those visual artists the opportunity to reach key decision-makers in the photographic community and the editorial, fine art and fashion worlds via inclusion in the Cool Hunting-sponsored event. Submissions will be accepted through 14 April 2008. The Awards will be announced in May during the inaugural edition of the festival. For more info head here.
