Capture Brooklyn

Explore Brooklyn creativity in the borough's homegrown photo contest


The New York Photo Festival celebrated its third year this past May, but that wasn’t enough for the event’s cofounder Daniel Power (who’s also the PowerHouse Books CEO and a former VII Photo director). Today the NYPH announced a contest called Capture Brooklyn.

Photographers can submit their work for a chance to show at The powerHouse Arena in Dumbo, Brooklyn during the Dumbo Arts Festival 24-26 September 2010. The event attracts 150,000 over the three days, but the images will stay up until 15 October 2010. The goal is to aggregate images that capture Brooklyn as the new place for literature, music, art and photography in New York.

You can submit up to three images for $25 or up to six for $50. Winners will be asked to bring in their work in early September.
