LENSCRATCH is creating exposure opportunities for photographers with group on-line exhibitions. Photographers will be allowed ONE entry per exhibition and ALL photographs will be published. I firmly believe in having occasional unjurored opportunities that allow for community and conversation. International submissions are welcome! Please see the Categories below…do not send images that are unrelated to these categories.
- Size: 72dpi, sRGB, 1000px on the long side
- Save as .jpg
Submit Via Email
- Send ONE image to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- In the subject of your e-mail, type the name of the exhibition (example: Mommie Dearest)
- Send name, title, location (where you captured the image), and link to your work (website or other):
It makes it easier for us if you follow the example below EXACTLY:

PHOTOGRAPHS IN CONVERSATION
Creating a narrative by connecting images with another photographer is a fun and intriguing way to have a visual conversation. Five years ago, the Six Shooters connected images every day for three years. A New Nothing connects two photographers in a visual conversation, as evidenced by the conversation between Aline Smithson and Melanie Metz above. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is currently featuring a variety of two photographer conversations in the exhibition, Talking Pictures.
For this call, you must connect one of your images with another photographer’s image that begins a story. The images can be connected by theme, color, gesture, humor, subject or light to create an interesting visual juxtaposition. Artists are allowed two connections. Not only is this about connecting images, but it’s about connecting people….so reach out to someone you don’t know and connect your images! Square images work great, but best to keep them the same format (Both square, both horizontal, or both vertical) and present them as a diptych in one file.
One or two connections are due Sept 1st, 2017
Exhibition to run on Sept 8th, 2017
