Light: Juried Competition and Exhibition

Dallas Center for Photography   /   Deadline: 04/27/21

The very meaning of the word photography is "drawing with light." Without light neither the image nor the art exist. If the photographer uses film, that light creates an ephemeral latent image that is brought to life in the darkroom. With digital cameras, the light hits the sensor, creating a cascade of electronic processes to deliver a final file. Using technology, the photographer creates art by being sensitive to light in the environment, whether found or provided, and committing it and its resulting shadows to film or file.

DCP invites you to submit images that highlight light. How does the selection, placement or quality of light help you tell a story or convey a mood to the viewer? We're looking for images that have light as a significant element in the image, as if the light itself is a subject in the composition.

Selections will be featured in a virtual exhibition on the DCP website and in a gallery exhibit in June. We will be printing an exhibition book of all the selections that will be available for purchase. This competition is not open to DCP employees, instructors, board members, corporate sponsors and partner companies, or their immediate families.
