November 20, 2022: “Light Is Hope" Juried Exhibition|Call for Photos

Updated: Oct 23, 2022



Submit your photos for the "Light Is Hope" Photo Exhibition by November 20th!


The Peachtree Corners Photography Club is going to have its own Photo Exhibition! We’ll have a Call for Entries with the theme “Light Is Hope,” and our outside judge(s) will select up to 100 photos to include. The selected images will be printed and displayed in the Peachtree Corners Branch of the library for most of 2023.


We will have a Juror’s Talk when the Exhibition opens in January, and an Artists’ Talk Open House in February where you can share the background and stories of your photos.


Entry Rules

  • Participation in the "Light Is Hope" Juried Exhibition of The Peachtree Corners Photography Club (PCPC) is open to anyone of any age who lives in the State of Georgia.

  • Each person may submit up to five (5) digital images for consideration by the judges. The image must be a .jpg between 2-4 MB.

  • Images must be appropriate for all ages, and must be the work of the photographer, including all post-processing. The images may have been taken anywhere at any time. The images may have compositing, but all elements used in the image must be photographically based.

  • Membership in PCPC is not required, although it is highly recommended. Join here. The membership fee for the remainder of 2022 is $15.00, and affords a host of benefits outlined here. (Dues will renew in January, 2023 at $35/year for an individual, and $20 for a second person at the same address.)

  • The fee per submitted image is $5. For paid members of the Club at the time of submission, the fee is reduced to $3 as a benefit of membership. Members whose images are selected will receive a special "Member" designation in the Exhibition.
