Tobias Award Application Process
The Seth Tobias Awards are an endowment established in the department in memory of Mr. Seth Tobias, a major figure in the advertising field. Mr. Tobias was an amateur photographer, devoted to his work. His Nikon, Leica and Hasselblad cameras were donated to the department and formed the nucleus of our check-out equipment.
All Tisch Photography & Imaging majors are invited to submit work for the two annual awards of $250 each. Previous winners of Tobias Awards are ineligible to reapply.
A jury of two professionals evaluates the work submitted by applicants. Past juries have included:
Evelyn Daitz (Witkin Gallery), Howard Greenberg (Howard Greenberg Gallery), Russell Hart (American Photography Magazine), Lesley A. Martin (Aperture Foundation), Michael Martone, Julie Mihaly (Jane Magazine), Jennifer Miller (Jane magazine), Sylvia Plachy (artist), Ambreen Qureshi (Business Director, deMO), Nan Richardson (Umbrage), Kathy Ryan (Picture Editor, NY Times Magazine), Paul Sepuya (photography, DPI alumnus), Brent Sikemma (Wooster Gardens), and Erica Uhlenbeck, among others.
Applicants are invited to submit up to ten images at tischphoto.slideroom.com.
