CALL FOR ENTRIES: The Society for Photographic Education's Competitions for students

The Society for Photographic Education (SPE) will be hosting its 2008 National Conference in Denver, CO, March 13-16, 2008. The organization is also offering scholarships to its student members and encouranging young photographers to be a part of next year's annual event. Eleven SPE Student Awards will include a one-year membership to SPE, admission to the conference and a $500 travel stipend. Students may include application fees with their entry—$50 for SPE membership—to join and thus be eligible for an award. These include the SPE Student Awards, the Jeannie Pearce Award (focus is on digital technology), and The Freestyle Crystal Apple Award for Outstanding Achievement in Black and White Photography.

The deadline for these awards is November 1, 2007. If you haven't yet heard of SPE, they are a non-profit organization dedicated to the discussion of photogaphy as a form of fine art, its potential for cultural illumination, and its role in the world of politics, journalism, and beyond. Through services, workshops, seminars, classes, and other programs, SPE seeks not only to spread understanding and awareness of fine art photography, but to foster the development of education, commentary on the craft, and criticism. Registration for the Conference is $220 for members, $345 or non-members.
