LightBox invites all Pacific NorthWest photographic artists to submit work!
In recognition of Portland Photo Month, April 2019, this group exhibit celebrates the photographic talent of the Pacific Northwest. We are looking for work that exhibits the unique vision and creativity of the individual photographer. One image each from 40 photographers will be chosen to be featured in the exhibit. For 7 years the exhibit celebrated the Portland Photographic Community combining great work from up and coming photographers with that of established photographers from the Portland community. This year, we have opened the Exhibit to the entire Pacific NorthWest for the PNW 40. Once again, we accept submissions without charging fees. We do ask for a gallery hanging fee from those photographers accepted into the exhibit to help contribute to the expenses of this yearly exhibit.
This Exhibit recognizes the Photographers of the Pacific NorthWest by showcasing their work together. The exhibit combines work from emerging photographers with that of established and known photographers from the Region, we encourage submissions from all. One image each of 40 photographers will be chosen, images which stand out above the crowd and uniquely exhibit the vision and creativity of the photographer.
