Calls for Entry
Current and upcoming calls for entry.
Typically 35-40 images are selected to hang in the gallery.
A note about our jurors and curators. Yes, we want to hang your work in the gallery and hopefully sell it to a collector. But juried shows are also about exposure. We work with the leaders in contemporary photography, the respected gallerists, publishers and photographers whom you want viewing your images. These are the individuals that can further your career. Move you from an enthusiast to becoming a photographer, from an emerging to a mid career artist.

On deck for the next round of shows are Aline Smithson, Josephine Sacabo, Eddie Soloway, Kevin Messina, Michelle Dunn Marsh and more.
LANDSCAPE- GRAND OR PERSONAL
The landscape, whether grand or personal, has been a subject of photography since the beginning and played an important role in establishing photography as a fine art medium. Early on, both in history and most photographers experience, the landscape was one of most accessible and familiar subjects available.
The SE Center is looking for images of the landscape, whether grand vistas or more personal, intimate treatments. We're looking for photographers who can make a statement with their landscapes, pull us in and make us want to explore.
Our juror for the Landscape- Grand or Personal is Eliot Dudik. Eliot Dudik is a photographic artist, educator, and bookmaker exploring the connection between culture, history, and politics. His first monograph, ROAD ENDS IN WATER, was published in 2010. In 2012, Dudik was named one of PDN’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch and one of Oxford American Magazine’s 100 New Superstars of Southern Art. He was awarded the PhotoNOLA Review Prize in 2014 for his Broken Land and Still Lives portfolio, resulting in a book publication and solo exhibition. Broken Land was most recently published as a feature in the July/August 2015 issue of Smithsonian Magazine.
35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date.

Other Worlds, real or imagined, dreams, nightmares, the impossible and the unusual. The SE Center is looking for images that push reality to the edges of the frame, staged, contrived or candid, digital, analog, or antique processes.

Tom Chambers was born and raised on a farm in the Amish country of Lancaster, PA, completed a B.F.A. in 1985 from Ringling School of Art, Sarasota, FL with an emphasis in graphic design and strong interest in photography.
