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 Southeast Center for Photography has a call for entry entitled “Other Worlds” due July 9th and another (jurored by Joyce Tenneson) called “The Intimate Portrait” and due September 1st.
The BlackBox Gallery in Portland, OR has three upcoming calls… “Shades of Gray” due July 10th, “Portraiture” due August 9th, and “Photo Shoot: 2017” due September 8th. This gallery offers free printing and framing of selected work, keeping costs reasonable if you are selected.
The SohoPhoto Gallery has their 2017 Alternative Processes Competition open for entries now, with submissions due July 14th.

The Center for Fine Art Photography in Ft. Collins, CO, has their next call open, entitled “Portraits 2018” and due July 26th.
