Diffusion 2014 Results: The Matter of Light

I'm so proud to finally announce the results of our 2014 annual themed showcase The Matter of Light, co-juried by Katherine Ware. This has been a challenging selection process, considering the amazing quality and sheer volume of work submitted -- the most ever for Diffusion. A big congratulations to our winners and a huge thank you to everyone who submitted. It's because of you Diffusion exists.

You will also notice that some of our top tiered awards (noted: exhibition award) will also be included in our 2015 annual group exhibition. I'm happy to report we will be exhibiting these artists as well as our publisher's invitational artists at The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO next fall. This is something I've done every year and have been fortunate enough to work with a new gallery host each time. Check out our exhibition history here.

[Addendum A: because of the high quality of work in this call I am sending personal invitations to folks who had exceptional portfolios that just didn't fit this call for art to be featured artists in our online gallery Plates-to-Pixels]

[Addendum B: These artists were selected from almost 150 artist submissions totally around 1600 images submitted.]
