The Leopold Godowsky, Jr. Color Photography Awards honor Leopold Godowsky, Jr., the co-inventor of Kodachrome film. Established by the Godowsky family in 1987 and held every four years, the awards recognize "achieved excellence in color photography." For the 2014 awards, the PRC sought nominations from hundreds of photography experts around the world, including directors, gallery owners, curators, educators, and critics. Over one hundred and fifty artists submitted work for consideration by the jury. The 2014 Godowsky Color Awards jurors were Roy Flukinger, Senior Research Curator of the Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin, Nathalie Herschdorfer, Director of Alt. +1000 Photography Festival in Switzerland, and Francine Weiss, PRC Curator.

Focusing on emerging and under-recognized artists and new approaches to color photography, the 2014 Godowsky Color Awards were granted on the basis of the strength and originality of the photographic work. The 2014 awards were international and open to artists working in any form of color photography.

Though Kodachrome was discontinued shortly before the previous Godowsky Color Awards in 2009, the PRC recognizes the legacy of Godowsky and celebrates the diverse and innovative approaches to color photography today. With the 2014 Godowsky Color Awards, the PRC offers an inspiring exhibition to the New England region and the world.
