Photo District News (PDN), a magazine for professional photographers, hosted its annual competition to find six photographers to exhibit their work in New York City at a collective show, held on August 8th. Louisville, Kentucky-based ChromaLuxe, a manufacturer of high-definition sublimatable photo panels, sponsored the event for the second consecutive year by providing supplies including a 16- by 24-inch metal print for each winner and three 20- by 30-inch metal prints for the grand prize winner.

“ChromaLuxe is working hard to support the fine art photography community and this is just one way we are doing this,” says ChromaLuxe brand manager Steve Flores. “Not only did we sponsor the event, but all winning (photos) were printed on ChromaLuxe aluminum and exhibited during the Curator Awards Exhibition held in New York City. 

“We are continually seeking ways to grow ChromaLuxe brand awareness, and the Curator Awards was ideal, generating more than 1,700 submissions-each of which was exposed to ChromaLuxe branding.”

Winners for this year’s contest were: Pablo Lerma (landscapes/grand prize), James Reeder (still lifes), Paul Adams/Jordan Layton (portraits), Kaitlyn Danielson (abstract/mixed media), Tod Kapke (urban scenes), and Wentao Wei (student work).

For claiming a winning spot, each artist’s work was also published in the fine art issue of PDN, which was published in August, as well as its online gallery. Lerma received an extra $3,500 cash prize to continue their work.

In addition to The Curator Awards, ChromaLuxe plans to sponsor a number of other fine art photography competitions, events, and exhibitions around the globe. Other programs it is currently involved in includes: Los Angeles’ Month of Photography; The Lucie Awards; The International Photography Awards; World Photographic Cup; ChromaLuxe Lucie Foundation Fine Art Scholarship; and more.

“ChromaLuxe is committed to the fine art photography community and will continue to grow this initiative,” says Flores.
