The New Orleans Photo Alliance invites photographers to submit images that celebrate, investigate, and/or explore the theme “Catalyst” for a juried exhibition commemorating the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. This exhibition will focus on themes of rebirth, rejuvenation, and transformation, celebrating the cultural vibrancy of post-Katrina New Orleans and the idea that prolific creation can come from destruction. Emphasis on images that focus on positive change, growth, and resilience are encouraged. Any and all interpretations of “Catalyst” will be reviewed for exhibition.

Submission Deadline: July 20th
