The Allegany Arts Council will host its 5th Annual Allegany National Photography Competition and Exhibition (ANPCE) April 6-27, 2019. The exhibition will meld the region’s rich concentration of photographic artists with an influx of national photographers.
The juried show offers $5,000 in prize money, including $1,500 for Best of Show. It also offers the opportunity for photographers to exhibit their artwork in the Saville Gallery, located in the heart of historic downtown Cumberland, Maryland.
