All photographers residing in the United States are invited to submit one photograph taken in the United States after January 1, 2011 for the exhibition Camera USA: National Photography Award 2013. Deadline to apply is March 26, 2013.
A maximum of 50 photographs will be included in the exhibition, and a $5,000 grand prize award will be presented to one photographer.

Our inaugural juror and award-winning photojournalist Harry Benson is back for his second year and joined by two new jurors: Ron Bishop, the director of the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Edison State College in Fort Myers, and photographic artist Christopher Rauschenberg. This award is funded through generous donations from visitors to Naples Art Association events, exhibitions and festivals.
Now in its third year, the Camera USA 2013 exhibition will feature recent work in color and black & white photography from photographers across the United States. It will be installed at The von Liebig Art Center from Jun. 17 through Aug.23, 2013.
