It’s definitely been a STRANGE TIME and the Atlanta Photography Group would like to highlight your most interesting photographs that express the uniqueness of our current situation. From new photos to those from your archives, APG is organizing a small print exhibition to share your interpretation of STRANGE TIME.

All photographic processes are welcome and all genres are acceptable, from landscapes, cityscapes and people, to animals, abstracts, botanicals and more, we’re excited about the possibilities.

We are delighted to have Barbara Griffin jury the exhibition. Barbara will select at least 100 images (and probably more) to display in the gallery and on our online platforms during September.

Images will be displayed as prints only (no framing required) and will be available for sale. Prints may be 8×10/8.5×11 up to 11×14/11×17.

You may supply your own print or have APG make digital archival pigment prints on quality fine art paper for you at $10 for 8.5×11 paper and $15 for 11×17 paper.  Suggested sale prices are $45-$75 (8.5×11) and $70-$115 (11×17).

There will be a social distancing gallery event scheduled during the exhibition – date to be determined.

Scholarships

APG offers need-based Scholarships for all of our exhibitions that will cover the submission entry fee. Don’t let a lack of funds prevent you from sharing your vision with the world. Be a part of the photography community and show your work today. Click HERE for more details.
