The Leopold Godowsky, Jr. Color Photography Awards honor Leopold Godowsky, Jr., the co-inventor of Kodachrome film. Established by the Godowsky family in 1987 and held every four years, the awards recognize "achieved excellence in color photography." For the 2014 awards, the PRC sought nominations from hundreds of photography experts around the world, including directors, gallery owners, curators, educators, and critics. Over one hundred and fifty artists submitted work for consideration by the jury. Focusing on emerging and under-recognized artists and new approaches to color photography, the 2014 Godowsky Color Awards were granted on the basis of the strength and originality of the photographic work. The 2014 awards were international and open to artists working in any form of color photography. In addition to cash prizes, the four award winners will have their work featured in an exhibition at the PRC gallery, January 21 - March 22, 2014. Though Kodachrome was discontinued shortly before the previous Godowsky Color Awards in 2009, the PRC recognizes the legacy of Godowsky and celebrates the diverse and innovative approaches to color photography today. With the 2014 Godowsky Color Awards, the PRC offers an inspiring exhibition to the New England region and the world. The reception for the awards will be held on Thursday, February 13 from 6pm to 7:30pm in the PRC Gallery.
