CENTER, the not-for-profit photographic arts and time-based media organization headquartered in Santa Fe, New Mexico, has honored, supported, and provided opportunities to gifted and talented photographers since 1994.

CENTER’s artists investigate current social, environmental, and political issues of critical global importance. CENTER’s 2018 Award and Grant winners travel to Santa Fe as part of their award package to present their artwork at the Review Santa Fe Photo Festival. The projects will also be featured in the exhibition, Full Circle: 2018 CENTER Award Winners, with images selected by Mary Anne Redding, curator at the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts.
