EyeTime 2013 was assembled as a means to publicly promote the research, exploration and investigation currently happening amongst today’s emerging talent. “In a world with so many “snap, then straight-to-publish” avenues, I was impressed by the taste and forethought that went into creating the entries.” Said Jenika McDavitt, Writer & Publisher, Psychology for Photographers. Tiffany Mueller, Light Stalking Writer and Photographer said “The finalists in each division were absolutely outstanding and it was really exacting to narrow them down.” All of the submissions exemplified outstanding work and the competition organizers are grateful for the enormous amount of entrants who were bold enough to confront the world with their voice. “Wow… so much great talent.”said Adam Sherwin, tech editor of Resource Magazine.

“It was an honor participating in this jury. I definitely felt connected to her through the process. She was an incredible photographer and friend, so I’m just thankful to be part of honoring her memory. I hope the winners and all the participants will be inspired by her.” Salgu Wissmath, Photojournalist, Co-founder of Project I AM

On Jessica Lum:
“Jessica Lum always embraced new technology and social media platforms. Xanga, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram- she had them all and she used them well. She was a master of social networking. It’s only fitting that her memory is honored by a photo competition utilizing the newest technology to track EyeTime on smart phones and smart pads. If she were still around, I’m sure she would have found a way to master that technology too.” Salgu Wissmath, Photojournalist, Co-founder of Project I AM
