Thank you to all of the shutterbugs who submitted their photos in the 2011 Visualize Via Color Photo Contest. Click here to see the 2012 photo contest winning images.
The 8th annual Via Colori festival is ready for our close-up! We want to see what you see. Any professional, amateur or hobbyist photographer are invited to "click to win" the 2013 Visualize Via Colori Photo contest. Twenty-four of the best images submitted will be selected by a panel of three independent judges who will choose the winning images based on concept, artistic quality, creativity and marketability. The judges are: Katy Anderson (Professional/Artist Photographer) Wende Lerway (Advertising Director, Modern Luxury Media) and Alexandre Rosa (Art Director, 002 Magazine).
Of these images, the contest will also designate 4 top honors:
- “Best in Show”– The overall best photograph based on concept, artistic quality and creativity
- “Best Macro”– Best example of macro photography, which refers to taking pictures of things at close range
- “Best Artist at Work”– Best example of a Houston Via Colori 2013 artist in the process of street painting
- “Best Spirit of the Festival”– Best example of an image that captures the overall spirit of the festival – “connecting the community to art while bringing awareness to The Center for Hearing and Speech”
All winners will be be announced on the CHS website and a social media campaign in the Spring of 2014. CHS will present the photographers who win one of the top four honors with a wonderful prize package which is TBD. Plus, all winning images will be featured in the collectable 2015 Via Colori Calendar.
These 24 winning images will be printed, framed and exhibited at a cool reception in the fall of 2014 at the Fresh Arts Cultured Coktails event at Boheme Wine Bar. CHS will auction these framed photos as part of our fund-raising efforts at the 2014 festival.
