2021 Juried Photography Show

 32nd Annual Juried Photography Show

The State of the Art Gallery’s 32nd Annual Juried Photography Show is going digital. With Covid-19 guidelines still in place, the show will be online only. Prize money of up to $1000 will be awarded by an outside judge after curation of the entries by gallery members. The online exhibit will show the accepted entries and highlight the prize winners. This year, the call for entries will be managed by Entry Thingy.

The submission deadline is Wednesday, May 19, 2021.

Entry Requirements

  • Each entrant may submit up to three (3) works.

  • All work should be reasonably current and original.

  • A photographic process must have been used in the production of the work. (Scanned work

    is acceptable, digital art that did not originate from a photographic process is not).

  • The work should not have been submitted to SoAG in the past.

  • Current SoAG members and their immediate families are not eligible.

  • The entry fee of $30.00 is non-refundable and does not guarantee that your work will
