Atlanta Photography Group is looking for strong, cohesive bodies of work for our most prestigious exhibition: Portfolio. Although there is no theme, images submitted should represent a single project, idea, or vision. We will consider still images from all processes, both traditional and digital. As we receive submissions, APG will post some of the images to our Instagram, tumblr and twitter. This year’s juror, Andy Adams, will select one body of work each from 6-8 artists for exhibition in the APG Gallery this January, 2017.
All exhibiting artists will be eligible for the 2017 APG/High Museum of Art Purchase Award of $2500, which includes admittance into the High Museum permanent collection.
