We are honored and excited to have Kim Weston as juror.

“From Edward Weston to Joel-Peter Witkin, the nude as a subject has been approached by photographers throughout history. From the classic simplicity of Weston to the complex, evocative style of Witkin, capturing the human form remains a timeless and challenging pursuit among photographers. At its best it is beautiful otherwise it’s just a naked body looking out of place. ~ Michael and Chelsea Granger
