Artist Call: Out of Darkness

Block Gallery

Raleigh, NC

Block Gallery invites you to enter this juried competition with photographs or videos that pay homage to Film Noir. This exhibition will be juried by George Jenne.

The Film Noir genre first evolved out of economic necessity as low to modestly-budgeted film projects. The result of working with minimal equipment and resources led to creative experimentation showing the pessimism, darkness and anxiety felt after World War II.

Traditionally marked by dramatic lighting and camera angles, the imagery evokes a mood of suspense, danger, and tension. We encourage you to explore your vision and interpretation and perhaps even overcome limitations encountered during this time while staying true to the underlying style and characteristics of Film Noir.


06/16/2020 – 08/01/2020

National Parks

The Los Angeles non-profit auburn art gallery invites photographers from around the world to submit entries for its National Parks exhibition, held in-person at the DTLA gallery (depending on the status of local coronavirus-related restrictions) and virtually on our Flickr page.

Following our Golden Hour show, we’ve opted for another simple, straightforward theme to celebrate the end of summer. Show us your most recent shots, or your best-ever. “National Parks” aren’t relegated to just U.S.-based NPS sites (though those certainly count!), so feel free to submit anything taken at a Parque Nacional anywhere in the world! Whether you have nature landscapes, portraits or anything in between, your photographs will be welcome.

The Greater Good

Chicago Photography Classes

Chicago, IL

In the last few months, life as we know it has completely changed. Certainty and normal routines were replaced by insecurity, challenges and sometimes fear. We’ve been forced to reexamine our priorities and change our habits in the hope of preventing the spreading of this worldwide disease.

In response to this pandemic, our Country is coming together, state by state, city by city, neighborhood by neighborhood. Although challenging, this time is becoming our chance to reveal the good around us, to show the strength we did not know we had, to cherish friends, and to thank the people who are working every day to keep us safe. We are putting our families, loved ones and their health first, leaving our empty workplaces, outdoor spaces and even our inner comfort zone behind.
