Here are some of the upcoming exhibition opportunities or calls for entry that may be of interest to photographers, particularly those in Maine and New England. This list is certainly not exhaustive and reflects ones (usually) of particular interest to me. Things are picking up now that summer is over and there are many contests with due dates in the coming months.
As always, please let me know in the comments if you have any other suggestions for this!
Colour, Colour, Colour from The Worldwide Photography Gala Awards, due September 11th.
The Nature Conservancy Photo Contest, due September 12th.
The Center for Fine Art Photography in Ft. Collins, Colorado has their Portfolio Showcase contest with entries due September 14th.
The British Journal of Photography has their International Photography Award 2011 contest coming up with entries due September 15th.
Bates College has a call for entries entitled “Starstruck“, due date September 15th – note that they require physical prints for submission.
The Lens Culture International Exposure Awards (portfolios, single images) are due September 17th.
Vermont PhotoPlace Gallery has “Again: Reflections and Photography”, with entries due September 19th.
“Summer” by the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, final deadline of a surprisingly non-summery September 21st.
Color Magazine Single Image contest, due September 30th. One of the best pieces of exposure you can get. (In print, at least, as the website is still archaic). You’ll have to find an actual copy of the magazine to get info on submitting as the info they have on the website is not up to date.
The National Portrait Gallery is having the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition, entries due between September 1st and October 31st.
B&W Spider Award Competition 2012 – the due date is a ways off (and I’m not sure when it is), but they run lots of specials that let you get discounts for submitting early.
