It is time for my monthly summary of upcoming calls for entries for photographers, particularly those in Maine and New England, so please find below my list for March 2019. I’ve listed four upcoming artist residencies in Maine in this post, too.
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.
