Get Ready, Photo People!
We're accepting your listings for the 2016 ACP Festival Guide, and we can't wait to see what you've planned. Click this link to get started!
(The deadline for participating in ACP 2016 is June 30th.)
Here are the details:
Festival Guide Intro (includes pricing)
Participate as a Venue
Participate as an Artist
Whether you're planning an exhibition, artist's talk, photo-walk, book release, or whatever photographic event you can dream-up for the month of October!
The listing tool will be open through June 30th, which means you have a little over a month to confirm the details. To list your event, you'll need a description of your event, addresses, dates & times associated with your venue, and a 1000 pixel-wide JPG for both your web and print listing. The base listing price is unchanged this year ($160) and remains a great value for reaching the photo-loving audience of the Southeast.
Your listing will be printed in 12,000 Festival Guides and distributed across the Atlanta-metro area, plus it will be available on our dedicated website for the festival, and also in our iPhone app - all of which will be marketed nationally!
As a photographer, you might wonder what it would be like to have your work seen rather than take-up space on your hard drive or portfolio box. As a retail shop, corporation or gallery, you might want to activate your walls with great photography and host an event. The Festival is a great way to get involved and join photography's month-long transformation of Atlanta into a coordinated cultural experience.
We can't wait for October, and are eager to see what you've planned!

"A roll of 35mm film contains 36 chances to get a photograph. While shooting a departing ship, Favorite had expended his luck when he saw this couple, looking in opposite directions from separate portholes like wondering eyeballs tethered to different brains. He raised the camera and clicked." - Billy Howard for #PhotosWeLove(Excerpted from #PhotosWeLove a crowd-sourced ACP publication exploring how, why and what we love about photographs, one picture at a time.)
"Some photographs stick to you, they follow you and become part of your day-to-day. You fall in love with them and see them without seeing them. She makes me think about how far I have come. She makes me think about a time when I was so stuck I just watched time drift past not knowing how or when I would join the accomplished and directed." - Jona Frank for #PhotosWeLove(Excerpted from #PhotosWeLove a crowd-sourced ACP publication exploring how, why and what we love about photographs, one picture at a time.)
"A Georgia photographer/blogger, Dominique James, recently saw David Foster's solo exhibit at Callaway Gardens and did a Q&A piece on his blog about David's work.
David will also be hosting a closing "Meet the Artist" event for his exhibit "Nature's Essence" - along with birthday cake in celebration of his 70th - on Monday afternoon, May 30th from 1:00 to 4:30pm at the Discovery Center Gallery at Callaway Gardens. All are invited."
