There simply isn’t enough humor in the photo world, so we decided, with the help of our very capable juror Alexa Dilworth, to have a Lenscratch Instagram Call for Entry focused on Bad Taste.  Julia Bennett, our Visual Media Editor who spearheads our Instagram feed, has been sharing various winning images on our Instagram site, but today we share Alexa Dilworth’s top 24 selects. Her favorite Bad Taste image is the one above, by Anastasiia Chorna.  Congrats to all the photographers who submitted some truly tasteless images!

Juror/Curator Alexa Dilworth is publishing director and senior editor at the Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) at Duke University, where she also runs the Awards program, which includes the CDS/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography, the CDS Documentary Essay Prize for Writing and Photography, and the Lange-Taylor Prize.

In 1995 Dilworth was hired by CDS to work for DoubleTake magazine, where she held the position of proofreader, managing editor, and then executive editor. She was also hired as editor of the CDS books program at that time and has coordinated the publishing efforts for every CDS book since 1996—including, most recently, Legendary: Inside the House Ballroom Scene: Photographs by Gerard H. Gaskin; One Place: Paul Kwilecki and Four Decades of Photographs from Decatur County, Georgia; Iraq | Perspectives: Photographs by Benjamin Lowy; and American Studies: Photographs by Jim Dow.
