Photomedia Center calls for artists to submit work for inclusion in its annual juried show. It is open to all artists internationally working in any photographic media—including collage, digital, traditional and alternative processes, and new media—and there is no restriction on subject matter. However, if selected, the final print must be shipped framed (or other similar display mechanism, like corner clips) and ready to hang, which is able to fit in a medium (13-5/8” x 11-7/8” x 3-3/8”) or large (12-1/4” x 12-1/4” x 6”) USPS priority mail box, insured.

Selected works will be exhibited at Glass Growers Gallery in Erie, PA and select works online at Photomedia Center,, from September 23 – October 31, 2011.

One work will be selected for the Purchase Award, which will be added to Photomedia Center’s permanent print collection. One artist from the show will be selected for a solo featured show at Photomedia Center during its 2012 season. Accepted works may be offered for sale by the artists during the show.
