“A really intense collection of photographs.”

The jury process was completed during the NPPA Convergence in Charleston, SC this weekend. We were honored that the distinguished panel of Tom Kennedy, Ron Londen, Tim Rasumussen and Bruce Strong volunteered their time to judge a total of 594 entries from 87 photographers from around the world.

“A really intense collection of photographs,” is how Strong described the work after the submissions were paired down to just over 100 images. Those photos will now be delivered to David Houston at the Ogden who will curate the final exhibit.

Thanks go out to our panel and to all of the photographers who submitted their images for consideration.

About The Project

When photographers converged on the convention center in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, a survivor cried out, "Thank God, the press is here.”

Her words expressed a sentiment that characterizes the storytelling and relationships between the people of the Gulf Coast and the media that developed in the months that followed.

On Thursday, August 19, a juried exhibit of Katrina imagery opened at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art coinciding with the 5-year anniversary of the disaster.

The exhibit, and a program of workshops and seminars explore the past, present and future of visual storytelling of Gulf Coast disasters.
