Fifty Crows Foundation Reviews Portfolios Quarterly for Exhibition Opportunities; NEXT DEADLINE: August 1

“The FiftyCrows Foundation based in San Francisco reviews portfolios for exhibition opportunities on a quarterly basis (4/1, 8/1, 12/1). To have a portfolio reviewed, photographers should submit a two-paragraph statement about the work in the body of an email, and a link to a website which contains the work of interest. Also include any information regarding the current status of the exhibition- whether the work is printed/framed, what type of prints, whether there are any multimedia (video/audio) components to the exhibition, and whether some type of funding has already been secured for exhibition opportunities. After the quarterly review process, photographers with work of note will be contacted by the staff.”

From the website:
“This annual juried exhibition draws entries from across the country and around the world, and remains among the most popular shows in PCNW’s annual schedule. The competition is open to all photographers, all photographic processes, and all themes. The juror is looking for work that represents a larger, cohesive body of work and will be selecting a short series from each photographer chosen. From among those exhibited, our juror will select first, second and third prize winners to receive prizes of $1,000, $500, and $250.
