There's a change of venue and time with "Atlanta Celebrates [QPOC] Photography" (listing #062) and it might affect your weekend plans. Southern Fried Queer Pride has curated a show at 368 on Ponce, and the opening is Saturday night from 6-10PM.

Please adjust your plans accordingly, and thanks!

ACP 2017 Festival Guide Availability

September 11th, 2017

ACP Festival Guides are currently available at these three locations (and many more!)

ACP Festival Guides & Getting Ready for 2017!

April 13th, 2017
There's no time like the present to think about how you want to participate in ACP 2017!

If you're planning an exhibition for later this year, taking a look at ACP Festival Guides from past years can be a big help. There are lists of venues you can contact, and generally, they offer a great way to understand the scale and scope of what it means for Atlanta to Celebrate Photography!

Here are the last few years of Festival Guides, in PDF form. Have a look - we hope they inspire you to participate in 2017. We'll be open for submitting your listing to the ACP Festival Guide in May, and the deadline will be in June.


Cherie Truesdell attended ONE HUNDRED events & exhibitions in ACP 2016

February 27th, 2017
Last week, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Cherie Truesdell, who attended ONE HUNDRED events & exhibitions during ACP 2016. It's not just remarkable, it's nearly unbelievable!

(We didn't ask how many miles she put on her car...)

Cherie visited ACP venues across the Atlanta-metro area (plus Athens, Columbus, Zebulon, and beyond!) and along the way she kept track of everything in her dog-eared Festival Guide. If you're a completist, and you want to see as many photo-related events as possible, we'll be sharing Cheri's tips with you later in the year, but here's a quick few:

"Bring the Festival Guide with you, call ahead as much as possible, and bring snacks!"
A few more quotes about some of Cheri's favorite events:

"One of the really fun events was #weloveatl - everyone there was very fabulous and young and cool. Such a neat venue, with their truck and Lonnie Holley's sculpture next door.

And Marianne Mitchell's exhibition was so cool! It was a creepy, poetic exhibition and was fun and fantastic. I was really inspired.

The Portfolio Walk is so great, because the people are there and they'll tell you all about their work, and they're passionate about it, and people come in from New York and California, and some are local students."
We'll be back in touch with a few of Cheri's tips for enjoying #acpfest later this year.

Thank you, Cheri!


ACP 2016 Festival Guide iPhone App is LIVE!

September 15th, 2016
(Photo illustration of unattributed photo via Look, is in no way a celebrity endorsement.)

The #acpfest iPhone app is here!

We're excited to launch the ACP 2016 iPhone app today, and are eager to hear how it works for you. You can save events to your calendar, share them across your social networks, and browse by date, by artist, by image, by type, and by map to stay up-to-date with the nearly 150 photography events and exhibitions taking place in October (and some now!)


Huge thanks to our development partners at MotionMobs, who brought this app to life and have been a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended! ; )
