Book, online exhibit competition deadline is May 3

The Colorado-based Center for Fine Art Photography is calling for submissions to its Portfolio Showcase Volume 5, which will include a book and online exhibition. The deadline for entry is midnight on May 3, 2011.

There is no theme for the exhibit. And the images will not be evaluated individually, but as a body of work. Ultimately, 15 photographers will be chosen to display 12-image portfolios in the book and exhibit. The online exhibit will be held from July 1 to Nov. 30, 2011, while the book is scheduled to be released in November.

The juror will be Chris Pilcher, founder of the Portland, OR-based Nazraeli Press, which specializes in books about contemporary photography.

The exhibit is open to photographers worldwide, including amateurs, as well as professionals. The Center invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought in its exhibits.
