Over Exposure...


Would someone please explain the logic, the rationale, the professional career incentive in offering a $1.2 million  luxury apartment for one year as First Prize in a photo competition? Am I the only sorry bastard to find this utterly fucking inane? Is this actually supposed to encourage and further the creative zeitgeist of great things to come? Wouldn't it make a helluva lot more sense and provide considerably more incentive to offer a fully equipped studio for a year, paid transportation world wide, a fully paid internship shooting for a photo agency- or $10,000 in cash? Or is this simply creative license to inspire the future Terry Richardsons of photodom?

Shame you don't get the rights to sell Mr The Edge's $1.2 million apartment.

A bizarre prize indeed. I saw that and thought. Erm, you can keep the pad, I'll take the suitcase full of cash please. I know a few places a damn sight better than NYC where I could live for more than a year on $10 000...
