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 is March 7th.
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!

"Photography has an immediacy that can reveal emotional, philosophical, and cultural truths. It can be factual or subjective, and, like other art forms, photography has the ability to reveal different realities. APG is looking for imagery that uses the revelatory powers of photography to manifest the beauty, the pain, and the mystery of different realities, as well as work that explores the concept of reality. We will consider both still and moving images from all processes, both traditional and digital. APG is open to a broad range of work that incorporates the lens or photographic process in a significant way, including manipulated and mixed processes. This exhibition will be juried by Anna Walker Skillman, owner and director of Jackson Fine Art. - Deadline: Jan 17 2016 - More Info."
"The Business of Photography Workshop is designed for those interested in pursuing freelance photography careers, working primarily with editorial publications (newspapers, magazines, wire services), non-profits, foundations and corporations. This two-day course is packed with practical advice and information on the business of photography, derived from Todd Bigelow's over two and a half decades of freelance experience.
Todd presents real experiences and scenarios as the basis for discussions regarding the importance of valuing your work, client development, portfolio considerations and presentations, copyright basics, licensing photos for revenue, dealing with contracts, rate and term standards, social media integration, legal and tax issues, agency representation, image workflow and more.
Participants will leave the workshop with a sound understanding on how to successfully handle business issues related to the freelance market, and the knowledge to manage their career."
