Photo Contest at


Hello GOY Friends,

Not quite sure the best way to do this, but I wanted to tell you all about a photo contest I just read about that’s being held by a website in New York City ( for photographers, and I immediately thought of all of you.

“..An image, a moment, a point of view. Each as unique and unrepeatable as the eye that views it. Enter Le Méridien + The Lens photography contest to share your perspective through an original photographic work of art.

Five grand prize winners from around the world will be selected to participate in a photography workshop featuring Ralph Gibson in his New York studio.

We now invite you to Share this opportunity or Submit Your Photograph for consideration."

I have nothing to do with this, but I thought that possibly someone might be interested, and it looks like it’s on the up and up. (If this is against the rules, then someone please let me know.) But I have seen some beautiful photography here at GOY and thought some of you might like to try your luck. Oh, and these are my pictures, I just thought I’d throw them in there for effect!

“…five winners — one per region; US, UK, Canada, China, and France — will stay at the lovely Le Parker Méridien in Manhattan. And they’ll each win a signed book. And a new camera. And round-trip airfare [to New York City, USA]. Not bad, eh?”

Of course I live next door to the Big Apple, but it still seems like a fun and easy contest to enter.

“To enter Leéridien + The Lens contest, just fill out a quick form, (from their website) and upload one of your own original masterpieces. Ralph Gibson and Le Méridien team will choose their five favorites. They’re looking for “works that express a sense of time and place and one’s personal relationship to it,” so stay focused and get your aperture in gear…."

Here’s the website:

OKIE DOKIE, that’s all…

Have a great day and I hope someone from here wins!!

Ah, thanks TT...yours as well..I have seen such amazing photography on this I really thought of GOY when it said this: “works that express a sense of time and place and one’s personal relationship to it,” -- that seems to say it all when it comes to photo's I"ve seen here!
