The 16th Annual Media Arts Council Juried Photography Exhibition (PhotoEx) is open to amateur and professional photographers nationwide.
Photography stops time and captures unique moments of light on subject matter. Whether intentional or through a fleeting serendipitous shutter click, use your own unique interpretation of this theme in your photographic submissions. The juror will consider good composition and photographic technique, as well as interesting, unusual subject matter, and interpretation of the theme. All works will be considered equally regardless of format or availability for hanging.
