Call For Entry: Photo Buckhead


As a part of our participation in Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP), all members of APG are invited to submit entries for this juried exhibition at the award-winning Mack Scogin Merrill Elam-designed Buckhead Library. The 20,000 sq. ft. building can host a broad range of sizes and types of photographic art. Juror Michael James O'Brien will select 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for cash prizes. Sales have been made from this exhibition in past years and will be encouraged again this year.


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.
