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. Two new big ones (CMCA and PRC) and two with entries in the next few days, so move fast if you’d like to enter those.
As always, please let me know in the comments if you have any other suggestions for this list!
The now 7th Annual Maine Photography Show is accepting entries with all entries due by February 1st. This is always a fun one to enter and to see what gets in.
Eyephoneography #3 – Open call for entries (and no entry fees), entries due February 3rd. As you might guess, this is for the iPhone crowd. You know who you are.
Vermont PhotoPlace Gallery’s has entries due February 6th for a show entitled “In Your Dreams”.
Aarhus Gallery in Belfast has their now annual call for art for their “44N 69W: Radius Belfast” 2012 show, open to artists of all sorts living within 30 miles of Belfast. The way this works is that you bring 1-3 pieces, make a small donation that they then pass to local food kitchens, and proceeds of any sales are also passed to local food kitchens. It is always a fun and diverse show and for a great cause. Drop-off is between Feb. 23rd and Feb. 26, so please checkout their website for details.
The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) in Rockport has a call for entries for their 2012 Biennial with entries due March 1st. Please note also that entries are physical proof-type prints that must be delivered by that date – it is not an online entry. The Biennial will be co-curated by CMCA director Suzette McAvoy and independent curator Daphne Anderson Deeds. This is obviously one of the big shows this year in Maine and well worth entering.
The PRC in Boston is having their prestigious 17th Annual Juried Exhibition, entitled “Exposure 2012”, with entries due between February 1 and March 2nd. The juror is Alison Nordström, Curator of Photographs and Director of Exhibitions at the George Eastman House. This is one I definitely recommend that all New England photographers consider.
The international contest entitled “The Art of Photography Show” in San Diego has entries due June 30th, but early entry discounts are available until February 14th.
