Communication Arts Magazine has recognized award-winning photographer Cade Martin in its 62nd Photography Annual Competition.

“During a difficult and strange year, I was constantly inspired and uplifted by the creativity and care with which my fellow photographers carried on and made important, impactful and beautiful work,” says Cade Martin.

One hundred and nine projects were selected by a jury of creative professionals; 2,328 entries were submitted to the competition.

According to the magazine, Cade Martin’s award-winning picture was a portrait of Mackayla, “a young advocate for her sister who was born at just 23 weeks, making her a micropreemie. This portrait is part of the March of Dimes #ItsNotFine prematurity awareness campaign, which features real-life stories of those affected by premature birth and ran in print, OOH and digital.”

The magazine has been described as “the foremost professional publication in graphic design, advertising, photography, illustration, typography and interactive multimedia.”

About the Author

Cade Martin

The only child of a university art professor and freethinker mother, Cade Martin grew up surrounded by shapes and images. His love of art grew out of summer vacations filled with trips to galleries, museums and art studios. At home he often found himself around the dinner table with an eclectic cast of characters – sculptors, writers and painters. They paraded through his childhood, shaping his art foundation and forming his appreciation for the candid beauty found in people from all walks of life. Cade’s been chasing characters ever since. He seeks out their stories-told through the architecture of their faces or the costumes they wear-whether he’s on a commercial production or setting up an Avedon-like photo booth at Comic Con. They are the heroes in his pictures. His thirst for capturing adventures took its hold while shooting stills on movie sets and then as a photographer for National Geographic covering the railways of India. And it is that sense of adventure that Cade brings to his productions elevating the ordinary to the extraordinary with a cinematic touch. It’s not just a picture. He’s committed to the experience, building beautiful environments and, sometimes for his portraits, simply building trust. A talented storyteller, Cade splits his time between the East and West Coasts creating images for editorial, advertising, fashion, and lifestyle clients
