Every month I summarize some of the upcoming calls for entries for photographers, particularly those in Maine and New England. Things are starting to pick up again now that summer is over.
This list is certainly not exhaustive and usually reflects ones of particular interest to me for the most part, 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 “Photo Shoot 2016” due October 7th and next up is “Framed: Shadow and Light” due November 9th. This gallery offers free printing and framing of selected work, keeping costs reasonable if you are selected.
The Southeast Center for Photography has a call for entry entitled “Portals”, with entries due October 9th.
The Vermont PhotoPlace Gallery has a call for entries entitled “Photography at Night: Dusk to Dawn”, jurored by friend-of-the-blog Lance Keimig, and due October 10th. They offer free framing in standard sizes, too, to help minimize costs if selected.
The Arnold Newman Prize has their next iteration coming up, with entries due October 14th. A great contest for you portrait photographers out there (with a $20,000 grand prize!)…
Lensculture, the online magazine, has a call for entries entitled “Emerging Talent”, with entries due October 18th.
The Conscientious Portfolio Competition is coming up again, and is free to enter — I highly recommend this if it is a good fit for your style of work (it isn’t for mine). Entries are due October 31st.

The New York Center for Photographic Art has their next call for entries up after a summer break…it is entitled “Primary Colors 2016″ and due December 18th, 2016.
Soho Photo Gallery has two calls coming up this winter, their 2017 International Portfolio Competition due January 7th, 2017 and their 2017 Int’l Krappy Kamera Competition due January 8th, 2017.
