Los Angeles, CA—The 13th Annual Lucie Awards Gala will honor masters of photography with a stellar lineup of nominees on October 27, 2015 in Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

Jerry N. Uelsmann, Achievement in Fine Art
Henry Diltz, Achievement in Music

“It is with great excitement that we launch into the 13th year of the Lucie Awards. I am thrilled with the caliber of photographers we continue to identify each and every year and this year is no exception,” said Hossein Farmani, founder and chairman of the Lucie Awards. “From the extraordinary work of relative newcomer Stephanie Sinclair to the legends with decades of work, the Lucies recognize those photographers making a serious impact in the world through their lenses and the issues upon which they choose to shed light.”
“The ability to honor these exceptional photographers whose work has made a lasting difference in our global photo community, is an honor unto itself,” added Susan Baraz, cochair of the Lucie Awards, and head of Judging for IPA. “We are able to not only thank them for their vision, at an incredible awards ceremony, but archive their work for future reference.”
The Lucies will also honor the year’s best photographic achievements in six support categories. The category awards range from Fashion Layout of the Year to Curator/Exhibition of the Year, acknowledging individuals and institutions that play an important part in the crafting and promoting of images.
Also at this year’s gala, The International Photography Awards (IPA), a sister-effort of the Lucie Awards, will announce the top four winners of its global competition, including Photographer of the Year.
The Lucie Awards is a signature program of the Lucie Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization whose three-tiered mission is to honor master photographers, discover and cultivate emerging talent, and promote the appreciation of photography worldwide.
