CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS TERMS AND CONDITIONS


INFORMATION AND ELIGIBILITY

Open to all photographers.

The "Flat File Feature" has shifted online to the new "Portfolio Platform" to provide the focus to a more streamlined online presence while we are currently practicing social distancing and not being physically gathering in the gallery. The Portfolio Platform provides the opportunity for photographers to showcase a portfolio of your photographic work prominently online at the Midwest Center for Photography website. The portfolios will be available for patrons of the gallery to go online and view, learn about you and your work through your images and biography and artist statement, and have the opportunity to purchase your photographs. Each portfolio will consist of 12 - 20 images.

Selection will be based upon the thematic series of photographic work submitted by each artist rather than solely on individual images. A brief artist statement and bio are required.

Selected artists will have their work featured for a period of six months online.
