(Don't forget to check out the The Soul of Philanthropy exhibition on Nov. 1st at Auburn Avenue Research Library!)

Help Us Find This Award-Winning Photographer!

October 12th, 2015
On Saturday, Sept. 26th, we launched our My Atlanta Exhibition at Ponce City Market. It was a super busy morning, and nearly a thousand photographs were posted from schools, senior centers and the general public.

Help Solve a Photo Mystery!

Participants registered and signed waivers for their photographs, most importantly so we would have their contact information if/when their photo won a prize.

The erstwhile judges from Creative Loafing (thanks Joeff & Gavin!) picked the photo below as this year's Critic's Choice. And yet, when we looked, we could not find a registration form for the photo, and there was no identifying information on the back.

This photo is an award-winning photo in this year's My Atlanta Exhibition, and we need your help finding its maker. Share your tip via twitter, instagram (or both, with #acpfest) or good ol-fashioned email: info@acpinfo.org.

Help us find this award-winning photographer!
