On Assignment: Portland Squared 2017

On May 19th, you and 72 photographers will be turned loose in the City of Portland. This year, you will have larger squares to work in and 4 different zones around the City. With Portland Squared, you can go out to do documentary photography or you can go out to create something yourself. We have 8 Categories Awards and 5 Craft Awards, plus the special Lensbaby Craft Award. We created The Craft Awards to reward excellence in photographic craft and technique. These Awards are about the use of a specific photographic tool or principle to create a successful image.

  1. We want you to think of the Categories and Craft Awards as loose assignments. You don’t have to shoot to these, but they may give you more focus. You can, of course, go out and shoot whatever you find and come back to edit and decide where the images fit best. We have found that shooting for a Category gives you direction and may lead to better photographs.
  2. Images may only be entered into a single Category.
  3. All images are judged anonymously.
  4. Images will be judge on their overall impact, and on the 7 areas of photographic practice listed in the rubric.
  5. Images for the Craft Awards will be selected by the Judges Panel.
  6. Images for the Lensbaby Award will be keyworded by the photographers.
