There are two deadlines; March 14th for earlybirds, and April 11th if you need more time.
Imagine your photos, on THE FENCE being enjoyed by millions of people in Atlanta, Brooklyn, Boston, Houston and Santa Fe!
What is THE FENCE?
THE FENCE is a large-scale outdoor photographic exhibition series, inaugurated in 2012 as a sister initiative to Photoville in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Each year, a distinguished jury is called upon to review the work submitted through an international open call for entries. 40 photographers are selected whose projects are then presented in a large-scale, outdoor exhibitions in multiple cities across the United States. In 2016, THE FENCE will be presented in Brooklyn, Boston, Atlanta, Houston & Santa Fe.
We strongly urge you to submit your work. Here's THREE reasons why:
#1: THE FENCE has consistently attracted exceptional work by talented photographers from around the world, giving us an opportunity to share these powerful photographic narratives with a diverse audience of millions of visitors annually, while providing photographers with a truly public platform.
#2: This year, for the first time, there will also be a "Georgia-based photographers" FENCE that will be exhibited in October in Atlanta (other locations around GA to be announced). If selected for the Georgia-based FENCE, participating artists will receive a $100 honorarium from ACP.
#3: Enter once and be eligible for everything. This is a chance to get your work seen by millions on the nationally exhibited FENCE or many thousands (plus honorarium) on the Georgia FENCE. Not to mention being seen by the distinguished panel of jurors. PLUS, there's a $5,000 cash award for the winner of the Jury's Choice Grand Prize, including a solo exhibition at Photoville in Brooklyn in 2016 and LOTS of other awards!
Submission deadline has been extended to Monday, March 14th.
Our advice: Take a look at the categories and past winners to grasp the concept and submit only your strongest work. If you were one of the hundreds of thousands who saw THE FENCE in 2015, you'll know why you need to submit your photos today!
"In its maiden voyage on MARTA, Art on Track featured original images by Atlanta-based photographers Kelly Kristin Jones and Laura Noel and was conceived and curated by Jennifer Schwartz, the Creator and Executive Director of Crusade for Art. Jones, Noel and Schwartz worked for months with MARTA staff from numerous departments to temporarily remove the advertising panels on a Red Line train and turn the rail vehicles into what ACP described as a unique, sensory art experience for riders... that will take them to new cultural horizons.
And so it did."
"Catching the art train at North Springs Station will give you a better view of the train and the train numbers. The trains at North Springs will have a layover before it resumes service. The trains that are going to be used are car numbers 689 and 690. "The installation is looking great! Here are a few instagrams from earlier today:
"It is going to take approximately 40 to 45 minutes for the train to make a full loop (North Springs to Lindbergh, and back to North Springs Station). There will be trains leaving from Lindbergh at approximately 9:51am and 10:11am. There will be trains leaving from North Springs Station at approximately 9:40am and 10:00am."
