CENTER
NEW IN 2021: The CENTER Awards recognize outstanding images in three categories: Personal, Social, and Environmental. Images may be singular or part of a series. All submissions will become part of the CENTER archive serving as an ongoing resource of mission-driven fine art and documentary imagery.

PERSONAL - Recognizes work engaging in the exploration, expression, and/or advocacy of oneself drawing awareness to the power of self-representation or underrepresented experiences. Projects related to identity, self-improvement, mental health, individualism, accessibility, disability, or other topics exploring self-empowerment are encouraged to apply.

SOCIAL - Recognizes work engaged in amplifying community issues and social activism. This category highlights projects in which the artist has a vested interest in, is a member of, or is an advocate for a specific social cause and/or community.

ENVIRONMENTAL - Recognizes work focusing on the state of the ecological environment. Topics may include but are not limited to, conservation, biodiversity, ecology, climate change, or other issues concerning the natural world. All projects exploring ecological relationships, topics, or themes are eligible.
