Here are some of the upcoming exhibition opportunities or calls for entry for photographers, particularly those in Maine and New England. This list is certainly not exhaustive and reflects ones (usually) of particular interest to me. Thank you also to everyone who has sent me leads, too.
There are still many good ones coming up – this time of year is one of the busiest with respect to calls for entries, based on my following of these for the last few years. As always, I recommend being selective in choosing ones that make sense for you and your work, as the cost of these in time and treasure certainly add up.
As always, please let me know in the comments if you have any other suggestions for this list!
The Griffin Museum of Photography of Massachusetts has their 18th Annual Juried Photography Exhibition with entries due March 31st. A highly recommended one for New England exposure.
This is not a call for entries or a contest, but on April 10th online registration begins for the New England Portfolio Reviews down at BU in Boston. I went to these last year and had a very good experience and hope to go again this year.
The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado has a call for entry entitled “Simply” with a deadline of April 11th.
PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris has its annual photo competition coming up, with a final deadline of April 15th. This one is not cheap, but I think it is one of the absolute best ones out there and definitely recommended.
The Minneapolis Photo Center has a call for entry for Portraits: Up Close and Personal, with entries due April 15th.
The Santa Fe Workshops are having their semi-annual photo contest, this one entitled “Portraits”, with a final deadline of April 30th.
The ipa (International Photography Awards) has their annual photo contest coming up with early entries due April 30th and a final deadline of May 31st. This is another very prestigious one and worth considering.
Another very nice one is the Photography Portfolio Competition 2012 from the Women’s Committee of the Philadelphia Museum of Art with entries due May 4th.
Photo Center NW has their 17th annual Call for Entries entitled “Equivalents” with entries due May 18th. The juror is W. M. Hunt and I heartily recommend reading his description of what he is looking for in submissions, even if you don’t plan on submitting.
The Viewpoint Photographic Arts Center in Sacramento, California, is accepting proposals for solo or group exhibitions right now with submissions due May 18th. These submissions are for exhibitions that will run between February 2013 and January 2014. Viewpoint is a non-profit organization serving the Sacramento region and their is no fee for on-time proposals.
The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center has their 3rd Annual Contemporary Photography Competition & Exhibition with entries due May 29th.
B&W + Color Magazine has their next call for entries coming up, this one the B&W single image contest 2013 with entries due between April 1st and June 30th. I just saw in the copy of the magazine that arrived yesterday that they are dropping the Color part of their magazine again and focusing exclusively on black & white going forward.
The international contest entitled “The Art of Photography Show” in San Diego has entries due June 30th.
