It’s no secret that New Orleans knows how to throw a party! From organized festivals and parades to impromptu irreverence, this town needs no excuse to let its hair down.

We are looking for up to five of your best images of folks cutting loose and having fun (in New Orleans or elsewhere), which will hang at the Photo Alliance gallery through prime festival season!
We have a wonderful group of New Orleans’ based jurors for the exhibition:

  • Greg Lambousy, Director of the New Orleans Jazz Museum
  • Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes, President of the Backstreet Cultural Museum and leader of the Skull and Bones Gang of New Orleans
  • Bethany Bultman, the President and Director of the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic
  • Jennifer Williams, Chair of Exhibitions at New Orleans Photo Alliance

We are thrilled to have such an accomplished group of judges!
