An Exhibition of a Nation

Pennsylvania Center for Photography   /   Deadline: 02/14/18

The AMERICANA Exhibition is returning to the Pennsylvania Center for Photography in Doylestown where it has grown into one of the Northeast's premier photographic shows. It features both a traditional print exhibition as well as the very popular large screen digital exhibition for photographers who are too far away to deliver physical prints or who otherwise do not wish to print their images. The Call for Photography is now open and will close on February 14, 2018.

Historically, the show has drawn entries from 20+ states and a variety of foreign countries. In addition, the AMERICANA Exhibition features the unique Camera Club Challenge, in which clubs from New Hampshire to Virginia have competed for top honors. The exhibition will be free and open to the public from March 16, 2018 to April 8, 2018.
