The Tracey Baran Award was established to honor the memory and achievement of Tracey Baran, a young photographer who died after a short illness in 2008. This annual award, with a fellowship grant of $5000, will be given to one emerging female photographer who is a citizen of the United States.
The grant recipient will be determined by a review panel based on artistic excellence, accomplishment to date, and the promise of future achievement in the medium.
The jury panel for 2010 will consist of Jen Davis, photographer; Christine Osinski, photographer; and Leslie Tonkonow, Director, Leslie Tonkonow Artworks+Projects.
This award was created by the School of Visual Arts BFA Photography Department and the Estate of Tracey Baran. It was funded by the generous artists who donated to the Tracey Baran Memorial Auction.
Entry Fee: None
Eligibility: The contest is open to all emerging female photographers who are citizens of the United States. Emerging is defined as not having had a major solo show in a commercial gallery or museum, gallery representation or an advertising campaign.
