This event brings together top photography editors, publishers, curators, gallerists, and educators representing small, mid-sized, and major venues from around the U.S. and abroad to meet with engaged photographers, review their portfolios, encourage their careers and exchange opportunities.

To assure a high-quality experience, we limit the number of participants and ask you to upload representative image samples of your work and provide some general information about yourself. These materials are used by the reviewers as a reference and help consolidate information we use to administer the event.

We have an alliance with LensCulture, a site that shares our goals of supporting contemporary photography throughout the world. They have provided their entry tool to us for registrations.  Log on below to create an account and upload your application.      special note: due to technical limitations, the LensCulture form uses terms like competition and winning on the signup template- don't be confused by this-  any questions, give us a call.   415.425-5608
