Antoine de Ras – "Homeward Bound"
Julia Dolan is the esteemed judge for the Art of Photography Show 2013. Dr. Dolan is the Curator of Photography at the Portland Art Museum. Dr. Dolan holds a B.F.A. in Photography from the Maryland Institute College of Art, an M.A. in Art History from the Pennsylvania State University, and a Ph.D. in Art History from Boston University. She has worked with photography collections at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Addison Gallery of American Art, and the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University. Dr. Dolan’s responsibilities include researching and growing the permanent collection of the Portland Art Museum, including contemporary works.
One of the distinguishing characteristics of this competition and exhibition is that our judge is always a highly acclaimed museum curator. Most photographers feel that having their work exhibited in a museum is the ultimate goal. Yet, getting exposure to museum curators is normally very difficult. This project provides that opportunity.
Our goal is to provide as many tangible benefits as possible for the exhibiting artists. The cash awards, accolades, media coverage and sales revenue that we provide to the selected artists are substantial.

- Marketing and promotion for the Art of Photography Show is extensive, with national media coverage, cross-promotions, coverage on television and radio, as well as reaching thousands of fans and friends on social networks.
