Congrats 2018 CoPA + Sculpture Milwaukee photography competition winners!

We partnered with the wonderful Coalition of Photographic Arts (CoPA) for a #SculptureMKE photography competition.

THE CHALLENGE:
Make a photograph about something, not of something.
To interpret the sculptures—not make depictions, but to bring something to the sculpture that’s not already there. The photographer’s challenge is to convey his or her artistic reaction to the sculptures. What feelings do they evoke? How can the photographer use their own strengths and style—be the genre abstract, portraiture, street, landscape, etc. to capture a feeling about the sculpture and not just an image of it?

See our winners below and follow us on Facebook to stay up-to-date on future photography competitions.
