Some Thoughts on Jurying Photography Competitions

I just wrote a post on Photolucida's blog about jurying Critical Mass, Photolucida's annual photography competition. Critical Mass puts participating photographers' work in front of 200 top photography curators, publishers, editors, and new media producers from around the world. I've been a juror since 2007, and I enjoy the process every year. Through Critical Mass, I've "discovered" a number of photographers for curatorial projects over the years. It's been my go-to resource for finding inspirational new talent. If you'd like to read a bit about the jurying process, take a look.
