The real prize is the publicity and exposure accorded all participants, who receive international recognition through the Foundation’s promotion of winners and entrants in publications and on our website.

The winners were determined using a “blind” scoring process by a distinguished panel of judges. Our judges for the 2003 competition were:

Henning von Berg, Berlin, Fine Art Photographer
Edward Lucie-Smith, London, Art Critic, Historian and Author
Nelson Santos, New York, Assistant Director, Visual AIDS
Eric Singley, Los Angeles, Curator, The Erotic Museum
Wayne Snellen, New York, Director, the Leslie-Lohman Gay Art Foundation

The rules used to submit entries for the 2003 contest are available here. Our next contest is scheduled for 2005.
