Portals: Windows, Mirrors and Doors
For our purposes, a portal can be an architectural feature: a gate, a doorway, a window, a mirror, or a tunnel, that frames or isolates or adds a new dimension to the image. In a fictional sense, a portal is also a magical doorway that connects two locations in space or time.
For “Portals,” we’re looking for images that use these devices in intriguing ways. All capture methods and processes are welcome.
The juror will select 35 photographers for exhibition in the gallery, and 40 for our Online Gallery. There are distinctions for Juror's Award, Director's Award, and Honorable Mention.
All photographers 18 years of age and up

You retain all rights to your work. Our mission is to promote photographers and photography in general; we will never exploit your work or use it without your permission. Should your work be accepted by the juror, you grant PhotoPlace Gallery the specific right to reproduce your image in the exhibition catalog, on the PhotoPlace Gallery website*, on social media, and, where appropriate, to help promote other PhotoPlace Gallery exhibitions.

We may also use your juror-accepted images as thumbnails or banner-style images for exhibits on our website, in addition to the "Exhibition" and "Online" galleries. If we do, we often must crop images to suit the allotted space/proportions. You may opt out of that use if you'd like.
