The Photo Review: Best of Show 2024


About the Exhibition

This exhibition presents the work of the prizewinners of the 2024 International Photography Competition, organized annually by Photo Review, a critical journal of national scope and international readership. This year’s Photo Review International Photography Competition will be juried by Joel Smith, the Richard L. Menschel Curator and Department Head in Photography at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York. 

About the Photo Review

Since its founding in 1976, Photo Review has highlighted the work of women, artists of color, and young and emerging artists in particular, and has promoted photography to a wide and culturally diverse audience. Its annual competition, first held in 1985, attracts submissions from established and aspiring photographers. Prizewinning works have been acquired by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Haverford College. In addition, since 2002, prizewinners’ images have been exhibited at important venues including Philadelphia’s University of the Arts and the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (now TILT Institute for the Contemporary Image).
