Surface Magazine: 13th Annual Avant Guardian Competition

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

Nicholas is pleased to announce that his images have been advanced to the semi-finals of Surface Magazine’s 13th Annual Avant Guardian Portfolio photography competition.

“After receiving hundreds of entries, Surface has selected 10 semi-finalists for its annual Avant Guardian Portfolio (AVG) photography competition under the guidance of an expert panel, which this year included Alexis Bittar, Dean and Dan Caten, Nicolas Alan Cope (2009 AVG), Kelly Cutrone, Nian Fish, Tim Hamilton, Reed Krakoff, Sean Patterson, Todd Selby and Viktor & Rolf.

Each of the semi-finalists — all US-based talents that have never published a print editorial previously — will be given a commission for November/December issue of Surface, under the art direction of creative director Matthias Ernstberger for consideration in the portfolio, using all the resources the brand has to offer.

The 2010 semi-finalists are: Isaac Bearman, Michael Casker, Nicholas Duers, Jason Kim, Simone Lueck, Justin Marquis, Tim Melideo, Adrian Nina, Michael Schmidt and Yoshiaki Sekine.”

Of the semi-finalists, Nicholas is the sole still-life photographer. We offer a big thanks to this year’s judging panel, and invite you to keep an eye on for the results, coming in fall 2010.
