The Arnold Newman Prize for New Directions in Photographic Portraiture is a $20,000 prize awarded annually to a photographer whose work demonstrates a compelling new vision in photographic portraiture. The Prize is generously funded by the Arnold & Augusta Newman Foundation and proudly administered by Maine Media Workshops + College.
This year, there was one winner, and three finalists featured in the Main Gallery at the Griffin Museum. We would also like to highlight the group that rounded out the top ten portfolios for the prize. These artists are artists of merit, and showcase creativity, imagination and stunning images all worthy of recognition. They appear in alphabetical order.
