When we announced the prizes for the Third Annual Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Awards would include exhibitions, gallery representation, cash, and more, we knew we could expect some incredible submissions from up-and-coming artists. We were right. The submissions thus far have been outstanding, which is why we’re extending the deadline for the competition until February 16, 2017.

If you have not yet submitted, the time is now.

This year, we have a total of eight judges each picking their own set of winners, there will be more opportunities than ever before. As many as 29 photographers could win.
