Photo Contest to Benefit Artists Affected by Sandy

In an effort to provide support to artists impacted by Superstorm Sandy, the New York Photo Festival has created a photo contest titled Devastation, Document, Drive, for photos that represent the devastation, restoration and rebuilding of the region’s afflicted areas.

Photos will be accepted until January 31, 2013. Selected submissions will be displayed at the Powerhouse Arena, which was severely damaged from the storm, in early February.

Entry is $10 for one photo, and $20 for 5 photos; no limit on submissions per artist. Information and guidelines can be found at their website

Proceeds will benefit artists receiving funds through the New York Foundation for the Arts Emergency Relief Fund.
