SDN News

Featured Photographer of the Month

Each month SDN selects a featured photographer to highlight in our monthly spotlight 

All photographers selected for the monthly Spotlight--including the featured photographer--will be included in an e-newsletter sent to more than 8,500 contacts world wide and will be featured on Twitter and Facebook, either as individual exhibits or in combination with others. Readers of Spotlight include leading photo editors, curators, buyers, journalists, and other industry professionals.

Having an exhibit on SDN is a first step to be featured in ZEKE Magazine.


  • The photographer selected as featured photographer must have both strong images and a well-written abstract explaining the project and/or the situation documented.
  • The featured photographer will be selected at the beginning of each month representing the work of the previous month for inclusion in Spotlight. To be eligible, the exhbit must have been submitted, approved, and made live by midnight of the last day of the month.
  • All other terms of SDN remain the same regarding payment or free trial account for submitting exhibitions.
  • SDN may choose to highlight a photographer whose work was submitted in a prior month but was not featured. This is more common while SDN is holding a call for entries and receives many more exhibits than can be featured in one month.
