Every month I summarize some of the upcoming calls for entries for photographers, particularly those in Maine and New England, so please find below my list for July 2018. This tends to be a pretty quiet time of year. And I’m actually a few days early this time!
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 Center for Fine Art Photography in Ft. Collins, CO has their next call posted, entitled “Wonder”, with submissions due July 1st.
Lensculture Magazine is teaming up with Aperture to run their first LensCulture Art Photography Awards, with entries due July 3rd. A free submission review is also part of the package for all entries, a nice little perk.
Monson Arts (in Monson, Maine, a gorgeous and remote area) has opened up this year and is offering artist residencies in the fall, with applications due July 7th. I saw an early version of their facilities and I think it should be great.
The PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont has a call for entry entitled “Still Life: Elevating the Mundane” due July 9th and another entitled “Open Call 2018” due August 18th. They offer free framing in standard sizes, too, to help minimize costs if selected.
The BlackBox Gallery in Portland, OR has one upcoming call… “Grayscale: A Picture Show” due July 11th. This gallery offers free printing and framing of selected work, keeping costs reasonable if you are selected.
The popular Lenscratch website has their next free call for entry called “Road Trip”, with submissions due July 18th. This exhibition is juried as part of their new trend, but submissions remain free.
The Southeast Center for Photography has a call for entry entitled “The Altered World” due August 5th.
