2016-12-07 2017-02-27 America/New_York Allegany National Photography Competition & Exhibition Call for Entries

The Allegany Arts Council is pleased to announce the call for entries into the Allegany National Photography Competition and Exhibition, to be held at the Saville and Schwab Galleries in downtown Cumberland through the entire month of April 2017.

You may enter the competition through callforentry.org.

This 3rd Annual event will meld the region’s rich concentration of photographic artists with an influx of national photographers in a juried competition for over $5000 in cash prizes.

The 2017 juror is Shannon Thomas Perich, Curator in the Photographic History Collection, Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.

The opening reception will be held on Saturday, April 8th from 6-8 pm. Prizes will be awarded at the reception.

Application requirements and restrictions

Maximum 6 entries per photographer. (No maximum per category.)

Categories and Descriptions

Category 1: Color Two-Dimensional photographic works of art printed in color on any medium/substrate (paper, canvas, metal, etc.) and using any process (wet darkroom, computer, etc), max 48” in width, professionally presented and wired for hanging.

Category 2: Black and White Two-Dimensional photographic works of art printed in black and white on any medium/substrate (paper, canvas, metal, etc.) and using any process (wet darkroom, computer, etc), max 48” in width, professionally presented and wired for hanging.

Category 3: Multi-dimensional Any work that contains as it’s primary element a photograph or photographs in any format or medium, but does not fit into either of the other two categories. The photograph(s) can be time-varying or static and may be embedded in an external construct of the artist’s creation. The overall construct and presentation will have equal weighting with the photographic image in judging the merits of the entry. The work must be ready for display; free-standing, placed on a pedestal, or wired for hanging. Works should not weigh more than 30 lbs. or exceed 48 inches in any dimension. No video submissions will be accepted. If needed, standard electrical AC power (60Hz, 120V) is available. If the multi-dimensional nature of your work does not convey in a digital image, we strongly recommend submitting a video instead.

$1500 for Best of Show

$800 for 1st Place Color
