ArtSpace Herndon invites photographers from DC, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia to participate in the 2012 ArtSpace Herndon Fine Art Photography Competition.
The competition is open to fine art photographers aged 18 or older working in any medium (digital or analog, color or monochrome), and using any printing technique - we care about well-done art more than the specific medium, technique or format. Fine Art Photography of any subject is welcome; there is no required theme for entries.
Entry Deadline: 24 March 2012, 5pm
Finalists for the Competition will make up the May 2012 Exhibition at ArtSpace Herndon in the main Nelson J. and Katherine Friant Post Gallery. Finalists will be notified on 31 March 2012 via email.
The show will run from 1 May to 30 May 2012, with an opening reception on Saturday, 12 May, from 7-9pm. Prizes will be awarded at the reception.
1st Place: $300
2nd Place: $200
