“One of the great things about judging a competition during this shut down period is that it’s like taking a walk and getting to see a large number of things you wouldn’t get to see on any regular walk. That is the case with the Lucie  Foundation photo competition entitled In Isolation: You, Me, We…. because you suddenly feel so very liberated and that, indeed, we are in this together.” – Maggie Steber, Juror



“I was impressed with the high quality of entries—it was hard to judge with so many wonderful images. I enjoyed the diversity of styles and perspectives represented, and was personally drawn to images that had a strong emotional quality, in which photographers shared their passion and communicated their very personal point of view.” – Gerd Ludwig, Juror

This Open Call is in partnership with Musée Magazine and Sony.
