Picturing Home: DCP’s Online Juried Exhibition – deadline June 21

Home is both a place and a state of mind. It can be comforting or challenging, personal or communal, but always evocative. For many of us the idea and reality of home is changing. Our schedules, our relationships and the way we interact with our family and neighbors are all being reinvented. DCP invites you to enter this juried competition with photographs that illustrate how your home experience is evolving as we adapt and change during this unique time in history. The call is open to everyone. Students under 18 years old are encouraged to enter the Youth Category.https://dallascenterforphotography.org/exhibitions/calls-for-entry/

Selections will be featured in a virtual exhibition on the DCP website. We are also planning to have an exhibition catalog in book form that will be available for purchase. DCP will host a virtual opening reception (date to be announced) that is free and open to the public. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third winners in both the youth and adult categories.

This call for entry is a part of our Picturing Home series. Join us in a free roundtable on Thursday, May 28 with notable documentary photographers, including Ed Kashi, Nancy Borowick, Christopher Lee, Patrizia Montanari and Terra Fondriest, as they talk about their experiences of documenting people and places.

We also invite you to register for our Family Storytelling workshop with Patrizia Montanari. In this four-class workshop, learn how to see your surroundings in a new light and how to capture the essence of a space.

This competition is not open to DCP employees, teachers, board members or their immediate families.
