Art Through the Lens International Photography Juried Exhibition
Deadline: August 26, 2017 Midnight CST
Application fee: $15 per entry
Originating in 1975 as the Paducah Summer Festival Photo Competition, Paducah Photo has grown from a fledgling contest into an international juried exhibition. Over the past 40 years, this exhibition has become one of the Mid-South’s most prestigious annual photographic events.
In 2013, Paducah was bestowed the honor of being designated a member of the United Nations Educational, Scientific & Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Creative Cities Network in the area of Crafts & Folk Art. To embrace both this international honor and reflect the international growth of the exhibition, Paducah Photo has taken on a new name, Art Through the Lens.
Art Through the Lens is open to all without restrictions on content. It provides photographers with an outlet for their art, encouragement for growth in their vision and presentation and cash rewards for works of exceptional merit. Each year from the hundreds of works submitted, 60 to 100 images are selected for exhibition by a highly qualified juror, with five of them receiving $2000 in cash awards. An awards presentation will be held during the opening reception.
