Open Call: Photography Award

Capture the Moment Photo Contest

July 1, 2021

Photographers and visual artists based in North America are invited to submit their work.

This year, winners will be selected by a panel of judges based on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact, and artistic merit. One grand prize winner will be selected, along with five runners-up, who will all exhibit selected work in a special 'Capture the Moment' gallery show in Fall 2021 in New York City. Applicants' work will be viewed by a panel of influential experts in the field of photography, plus have the opportunity to win cash and award recognition.

As viewers, we long for connection to memorable moments that capture, captivate and distinguish a period in time. The tale a single image can tell might evoke an emotional response, captivating viewers even further, burning the image into memory, allowing your audience to unfold stories of their own -- all in response to your art. In Duggal's Capture the Moment 2021 Photo Contest, we invite you to submit a photo of one captured moment. Your image provides a unique record of one moment of inspiration. The story it tells may be abstract, concrete, internal or external - it's up to you.
