What is the task of a Photo Laureate?
A Photo Laureate must be willing to create a document of Tampa Bay life, events, and its people for a year. The Photo Laureate must be engaging, curious, interested in, and inclusive to all Tampa Bay’s inhabitants. The Photo Laureate will be selected based on technical quality, creativity, originality, storytelling, and relevance. We enthusiastically encourage photographers of all genres to apply! Whether you are into conceptual photography, fine art photography, portraits, street photography, or nature, we are looking for a Photo Laureate who uses their own vision and style to capture the stories of Saint Petersburg and Tampa Bay.
