Every month I summarize some of the upcoming calls for entries for photographers, particularly those in Maine and New England.
This list is certainly not exhaustive and usually reflects ones of particular interest to me, but hopefully it will be helpful to many of you as well.
The BlackBox Gallery in Portland, OR has two upcoming calls…first up is “Black and White: 2017” due January 10th, 2017 and next up is “Portraiture: Mirror Mirror” due February 8th. This gallery offers free printing and framing of selected work, keeping costs reasonable if you are selected.
SohoPhoto Gallery has their 2017 International Portfolio Competition up now, with entries due January 11th, and their 2017 International Krappy Kamera Competition up, too, with entries due the next day on January 12th.
Flash Forward extended entries to their Emerging Photographers Competition (age 34 and under) to January 12th.
