This year Elizabeth Avedon, Jim Casper from LensCulture, Whitney Johnson from The New Yorker, Elizabeth Krist from National Geographic, and many others are helping judge submissions. These same jurors will be offering hour-long portfolio reviews to the winners in each category. Winners from last year’s invitational included Sebastiano Tomada, Bryan Schutmaat, Jessica Antola, Tamara Dean and Sian Davey.
