Pre-Screening Jurors: Critical Mass 2014

Each year, we assemble a team of about 20 intrepid jurors to serve as Critical Mass pre-screeners. Our pre-screening team is made up of curators, publishers, and new media producers with their fingers on the pulse of the photography world. They view all the submitted work and select a group of 200 Finalists to move on to the final round of jurying. Our pre-screeners are a focused, passionate bunch (and we keep them tack sharp by sending them bags of strong Oregon coffee).
