Theme: HOME
An individual’s connection to Home is highly personal; nonetheless, the concept of Home is shared among all people. Understanding how others define Home strengthens our human connections. Home: Universal. Ubiquitous. Unique.

ONWARD Compé is Project Basho’s annual international photography competition for emerging photographers. Our main goal is to increase the exposure of talented image-makers and create new outlets for their work. Juried each year by a leading figure in contemporary photography, ONWARD Compé spotlights new envelope-pushing work that continues to further the medium. Now in it’s fifth year, ONWARD Compé has been steadily growing, drawing submissions from around the U.S. and across the globe.
Juror: Todd Hido
This year’s guest juror is celebrated photographer Todd Hido. First attracting the attention of the art world for his portfolio Housesitting in ArtForum (May 1998), Hido has since become one the most distinctive and inspired image-makers in contemporary photography.

Hido’s landscapes and portraits examine themes of anonymity and isolation in American life. Shooting with available and low light, often with long exposures, his pictures are heavily infused with mood and tension without straying towards sentimentality.

Deadline: November 30th, 2011
