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. As always, please let me know in the comments if you have any other suggestions for this!
“Dreams” with the Center for Fine Art Photography in Ft. Collins, Colorado, curated by Aline Smithson, entries due August 9th. They have their Portfolio Showcase contest with entries due September 14th coming up as well.
The Vermont PhotoPlace Gallery has a Call for Portfolios (due August 8th) and another contest called The Nature of Trees (due August 22nd). The Call for Portfolios looks interesting but I wonder how many visitors actually look through the portfolio books.
The Nature Conservancy Photo Contest, due September 12th.
“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 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.
The National Portrait Gallery is having the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition, entries due between September 1st and October 31st.
