Surface Magazine has announced its annual search for the best new fashion photography talent – the work of whom it will be showcasing in its 10th Annual American Avant Guardian Issue and Exhibition. The competition invites photographers working or studying in the U.S. or Canada to submit a series of up to 20 images. A handful of finalists will be selected to shoot professional fashion editorials for publication in the Avant Guardian portfolio. The most striking images from the portfolio will be showcased in an exhibition that launches in New York and continues to Los Angeles and Miami. Only emerging photographers are eligible – namely, photographers who have not published a fashion editorial before 2006. The deadline for entry is July 9th 2007.
