The competition's producers continue to outdo themselves. This well conceived international exhibition provides value to artists at every turn, from first-rate viewing in the judging process to exhibition and publication opportunities, photo industry connections, and even monetary awards.

Another benefit to the artists is the chance to connect with prominent San Diegans and perhaps catch the eye of another curator in attendance.
