We are looking for work that focuses on visual storytelling rather than fine art photography…work that compels us to think about life outside our own little worlds…that teaches us something we didn’t know or helps us understand a situation from a new point of view…tell us your story! Entry Fee: $45/3 project entries. Deadline: March 13, 2018More info. Contact: email or call 631-862-6575.



Domesticity – Group Photography Exhibition

The Midwest Center for Photography in Wichita, Kansas seeks entries for a juried photography exhibition, April 27 – May 11, 2018. Juror: Linda Robinson, Gallery Director, MWCP. Domesticity is a primarily household act, an activity, and chore with devotion to family and home life, one in which we do with pleasure to sustain life with the personal characteristics that make it our own. The building of the family unit, the organization of personal possessions, the nourishment provided from the meals we prepare, and the art of creating a space of comfortable respite is a great necessity of the human condition, of survival. Photographs using domestic subject matter, images of people and places we call home, of family, of shelter, are what make up the images in this exhibition, encompassing a range of approaches from the traditional codes of domesticity to alternative modes of homemaking. Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online. Open to all photographers nationwide in the USA. All photographic media is welcome. Selection will be based upon the series of work submitted by each artist rather than solely on individual images. A brief artist statement is optional. $40 entry fee. Deadline: March 15, 2018More info. Contact: email or call 316-269-1250.
