Silvershotz Folios 2011 Released!

Originally published on Facebook, Friday, November 29, 2011 at 7:44pm.

I am happy to announce this past week the 4th annual Silvershotz Folios 2011 was released, which includes six photographs from my portfolio Hurricane Ike: Images from the Debris Field.  This year’s Folios contains the work of 31 artists from 12 countries, including work from my friends Marti Belcher and Ann George.

The Folios journal is a special edition collection of work by contemporary emerging artists who are carefully selected by a jury panel of industry experts. Photographers from around the world submit portfolios that are evaluated on the following criteria: technical skills, a themed and cohesive body of work, consistent excellence in every image in the folio and the intellect behind the folios presented.

By being selected for inclusion in Folios, contemporary artists are assisted by Silvershotz in the worldwide promotion of their work.  The Folios acts a formal introduction and recommendation to galleries, collectors, and institutions around the world so as to further participants’ careers. This has resulted in increasing the sales of work by Folios artists, in addition to being offered one person exhibitions and reproduction of their work in other fine art publications.

Folios is distributed worldwide, with 10,000 journals being shipped to 1400 bookstores in 17 countries plus a further 2,000 journals being sent to leading galleries and institutions in 19 countries. Major booksellers sell and can order the journal, and it can also be purchased online.

The 2011 jury panel included:
Clive Waring-Flood, Editor, Silvershotz Magazine, UK & Australia
Mary Meyer, Gallery owner & publisher, Australia
Tim Rudman-FRPS, Fine art photographer, printer, author, educator, UK
Rosemary Wilman - Hon FRPS, President of The Royal Photographic Society to September 2011, UK
