Fellowship is Silver Eye's international juried photography competition. For eighteen years this competition has recognized both rising talent and established photographers from all corners of the globe, and from the state of Pennsylvania. This year, Silver Eye received over two hundred submissions of creative, challenging photography. The International Prize is awarded to an artist working within the United States or abroad, and the Keystone Prize is awarded to an artist working and living within the state of Pennsylvania. The prizes were selected by Chris McCall, Executive Director of Pier 24 in San Francisco, CA and Jessica Beck, Milton Fine Curator of Art at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.
