Call for Work: First Look 2019

Deadline: November 8
Exhibition: January 4 – March 4, 2019

Every photograph tells a story. When part of a body of work, the photograph takes on new meaning, becoming part of a bigger and more complete narrative. A portfolio allows the photographer to explore the complexities of their subject, and provide context that gives it richness and meaning that is more than the sum of its parts. Panopticon Gallery is pleased to open submissions for “First Look,” our annual juried portfolio showcase. Four to five portfolios will be selected for exhibition from January 4 to March 4, 2019.

Submission Instructions:

-       10-15 images in JPEG format, sRGB color space. Please name your files Last Name_First Name_Title.jpg Example: Sneyd_Paul_Untitled.jpg
