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 September 2019. Things are starting to pick up again this time of year.
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.
