Call for Entries: Portfolio 5, Open Theme, Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, Co

Portfolio ShowCase Volume 5

There is no theme for this exhibition. The images will be evaluated as a cohesive body of work, rather than individual images. Fifteen photographers will be chosen to display their twelve-image portfolios in the Center’s Portfolio ShowCase Volume 5 book and online exhibition.
