2018-04-07 2018-04-28 America/New_York 4th Annual Allegany National Photography Competition & Exhibition

The Allegany National Photography Competition & Exhibition was created originally to showcase the work of local photographers, many of whom find inspiration in the serenity of Mountain Maryland. Now in its fourth year, the ANPCE has grown exponentially from a small, regional show to a full-scale, national, juried competition.  With over 600 entries in 2017, it is quickly becoming one of the go-to opportunities for photographers from around the nation.

As part of celebrating the Allegany National Photography Competition & Exhibition, each year the Allegany Arts Council designates April "Photography Month" - including a packed calendar of events, workshops, and opportunities for local residents and tourists alike to further pursue their photography interest or launch a new one.
