The deadline for entries for this call was January 24th.

This call to enter includes pretty much anything that lets your photograph tell your story.

A return to nature … The end of a journey … Dancing under the moon … Café life, your life, someone’s private life … Pets, friends, family … Diversity is always good … Sophisticated, austere, beautiful, surprising.

Anything you would love to display in our next salon-style exhibition.

Let’s celebrate with this show.

All genres, all processes of photography welcome. -Elizabeth Avedon
