The Center for Fine Art Photography in Ft. Collins, Colorado is celebrating its fifth anniversary. With a new facility, and a growing roster of events and educational offerings, I’m sure the next five years will bring more opportunities for photographers to connect, in person and on line.
“Fifteen photographers will be chosen to display their twelve-image portfolio in The Center for Fine Art Photography’s special Online and Print Portfolio Show and be included the Center’s new book publication Artists ShowCase, volume 1, issue 1.
The show will also be featured on the Center’s web site at www.c4fap.org from September 1 – September 30, 2008 and will remain online for the next two years.
The Center is pleased to provide artists with an economical means of having their work reviewed by an international juror and exhibited with no printing, framing or shipping costs involved.
Theme: Open – There is no theme for this exhibition. The images will be evaluated as a cohesive body of work, rather than individual images.
Juror: Darius Himes

The Center for Fine Art Photography invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought to participate in this exhibition.

The exhibition is open world wide to all professional and amateur photographers working with digital or traditional photography or combinations of both.
