Portfolio 2019 - Atlanta Photography Group
APG is looking for strong, cohesive bodies of work for our most prestigious exhibition: Portfolio 2018. Although there is no theme, images submitted should represent a single project, idea, or vision. We will consider still images from all processes, both traditional and digital. This year’s juror is Paula Tognarelli, Executive Director and Curator of the Griffin Museum of Photography, located in Winchester, MA, just outside Boston. Tognarelli will select one body of work each from 6-8 artists for the exhibition.
All exhibiting artists will be eligible for the 2019 APG/Museum Purchase Award of $2500, which includes admittance into a museum permanent collection.
