Honorable mention at New York Photo Awards
Robert Rutöd received honorable mention
at New York Photo Award 2011 in the category Fine Art for a photograph
from his series Less Is More.
The New York Photo Festival initiated its annual photography
competition in 2008 as The New York Photo Awards. The awards were
an immediate success, and submissions have climbed each year, both
in breadth of material as well as in source of work submitted. This
year 17,000 images were submitted by professional and budding photographers
from more than 90 countries.
Winners and honorable mentions are featured in an exclusive
main floor exhibition at the powerHouse Arena opening at this year’s
New York Photo Festival from May 11 to 15, 2011. The work of the
2011 New York Photo Awards winners and honorable mention recipients
will also be showcased in a summer-long exhibition at the Photographic
Centre Peri in Turku, Finland, opening on June 7, 2011.
