Call For Entry: Airport Show


Departures-2018.jpg

APG is now taking submissions for our 8th annual Airport Show. Juror Amy Miller will select two photographs each from fifteen photographers to exhibit in the central atrium of the world’s busiest airport: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). ATL has an average of 260,000 visitors a day, making this an opportunity to have your photographs seen by literally millions of travelers from all over the world.

This exhibition will be featured in Atlanta Celebrates Photography Festival Guide and work will be for sale – artists receive 60% commission. Artists will be responsible for producing prints, and our sponsor Digital Arts Studio (DAS) will mount the prints; APG will handle the framing and installing of the artwork.

Scholarships

APG offers need-based Scholarships for all of our exhibitions that will cover the submission entry fee. Don’t let a lack of funds prevent you from sharing your vision with the world. Be a part of the photography community and show your work today. Click HERE for more details.
