The Media Arts Council strives to support the local and regional photographer community and to strengthen the importance of photography as an art form by providing education, events, exhibitions, and public programs.

Our signature event, the PhotoEx Juried Photography Exhibit, started in 2007 as a local photography contest entitled Media ICONS and sought to capture the essence and character of Media, PA while highlighting the hidden talents of the many talented photographers in the area. In 2015, we expanded the focus and demographics of the juried show to include all of North America and beyond.
PhotoEx is currently a virtual-only exhibit accessible by everyone on the internet, but we look forward to returning to our traditional in-gallery exhibit very soon.
If you would like to be involved or volunteer for our vibrant photography committee, please contact us.
