Entry deadline August 27, 2017
Exhibit on view: October 12 – November 3

Providence Center for Photographic Arts (PCPA) seeks a broad range of exhibition-ready work from established and emerging photographers for its 4th Open Call exhibit, jurored by Julie Grahame, publisher of aCurator.com, a full-screen photography magazine, and the associated aCurator blog. Julie is a consultant, portfolio reviewer, writer and speaker.
The “open call” is an opportunity to present your best work. There is no theme to adhere to. We want to see what drives, motivates, and inspires your creative process. All photo-based images are welcome. There is no limitation to subject matter or technique. All entries will be reviewed and judged on artistic merit, originality, technical excellence, composition, and overall impact.
