The Photocenter Northwest does a neat thing for their annual gallery program fundraiser. They host a contest that is open to any photographer under the sun for a modest entry fee and have reasonable prize and recognition levels. Selected entries will be on display at the center from August through Mid-September and all photo processes are welcome. This year the juror is renowned photographer, curator, gallery owner and author W.M. Hunt. It’s clear that he is above anything a true lover of photography and art. He’s judged many contests before and really what he’s looking for is to have his bell rung. Keep reading for more details and you can head over to pcnw’s website for more details.
