NEW SUBMISSION DEADLINE!

419 SQUARE MILES OF SUMMIT COUNTY
PHOTOS OF PEOPLE AND PLACES

SUMMIT COUNTY PHOTO EXHIBITION

NEW DEADLINE!
DEADLINE FOR ENTRY: FEB. 7, 2019, MIDNIGHT

Call for Artists/Photographers! Summit County covers 419 square miles representing many facets of geography, business, rural and urban venues and diverse people.  “419 Square Miles of Summit County – Photos of people and places” is a subject-matter based exhibition for photographers that will open in Summit Artspace’s main gallery on March 1.

The focus of the exhibit is to highlight life throughout  Summit County using portraits, landscapes, interior spaces, nature, and street photography submitted by local and regional photographers, both professional and hobby.  Each photograph will be considered based on its own merit and must include the address/location of the photograph which must be within the 419 miles known as Summit County.

The vast expanse of Summit County will be reflected in photographs that convey emotions that speaks to the people, history and significance of life in Summit County. At a time when urban and rural parts of the County are sometimes divided, having an avenue for conversation and mutual appreciation through visual narrative is key.

Photographs that have been displayed or exhibited in any gallery or studio in Summit Artspace are not eligible for the exhibition. All subject matter and photographic processes are welcome.
