Juror: Jim Richardson
Now closed for submissions
Exhibition prints deadline: December 22, 2017
Gallery exhibition: January 3 – January 27, 2017
What images reflect your feelings about America today? Some of us are worried about America’s place in the world. The changing climate. The fading reality of the American dream for our family.
Others of us remain awed by the vast beauty of America. The strength and independence of its people. Americans’ willingness to step up to help neighbors in times of crisis.
Regardless of your opinions or your nationality, we welcome images that evoke the broad range of emotions and events of this extraordinary period in United States history. They need not be political — just let your images tell us how you feel about the state of America today.
All capture methods and processes are welcome.
