Online vote to decide Saatchi show finalists
The Saatchi Gallery in London, known for its role in launching conceptual Britart in the 1990s, is collaborating with Google to exhibit the work of winners of an international online photography prize competition.
More than 3,500 student photographers from around the world submitted images to try and win a chance to show their work at Saatchi, a trip to London, 5,000 pounds and to illustrate personalised iGoogle Internet homepages.
Public online voting begins Friday on the work of 36 shortlisted photographers from which the six finalists will be chosen for the week long Saatchi exhibit opening on June 24.
The overall winner will be selected from among the six by a panel of art critics and artists.
Shortlisted works include narrow, panoramic images of animals, toys, abstract designs and nature. Click on the links below to see slideshows:
