Of The Year Exhibition Open Call:
So much beauty passes us by every day, and it takes someone with a special eye to pause and immortalize the moment in a photograph. The wonder of photography is that it’s not only a showcase on the beauties of life, it’s seeing those beauties through the eyes and style of the artist themselves.
As the year wraps up and the joy of the holidays is upon us, we’re once again opening submissions for our End of the Year Photo Exhibition. This is an exciting year, because we’re doing something unique this time around. Instead of setting a theme for the submissions to follow, we’re doing a theme-free open call. Send in your most stunning works from this year. Your photograph can be anything, so go ahead and give it everything you can!
