The Clarence John Laughlin Award was instituted by the New Orleans Photo Alliance in 2010 to support the work of photographers who use photography as a means of creative expression. It honors the life and work of Clarence John Laughlin (1905-1985), a New Orleans photographer best known for his surrealist images of the American South. The Clarence John Laughlin Award grants one $5000 prize annually to a photographer whose work exhibits sustained artistic excellence and creative vision.
For 2014, NOPA invited Del Zogg, the manager of Works on Paper & Photography Collections at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston TX, to serve as juror.
Past recipients of the award include: Walker Pickering (2013), Lee Deigaard (2012), Joni Sternbach (2011) and Charles Grogg (2010)
The winner will announced on November 1, 2014.
