F/Stop Photography Competition Exhibition
Please note, this event has expired.
Come see the F/Stop Photography Competition winners and entrants from August 31 to September 28.
The 31st annual F/Stop Photography Competition and Exhibition will launch Center for the Arts on August 30 with an opening and awards reception from 6–8pm. Awards will be announced at 7pm.
This year, F/Stop has six categories for adults: Landscape, Nature, Architecture, People, Altered/Abstract, and Traditional. Younger photographers can also join in the fun, by submitting their work (featuring any subject matter) to the youth category.
The competition used to separate photographs that had been altered in any way, but today everyone uses filters and Photoshop to tweak their images, so it’s no longer possible to have a category for all edited photographs. Instead, this year’s “Altered” category is reserved for photographs that owe more to photo editing software than reality.
The F/Stop Photography Competition is open to photographers from across Northwest Florida, and typically brings in over 100 submissions. Photographers can enter up to three photographs this year, and must bring their entries to the Center for the Arts between August 22–24.
Potential entrants can find more information on the Center for the Arts website: https://www.pccenterforthearts.com/artist-opportunities
The opening reception for a solo show featuring last year’s F/Stop winner, Don Griffiths, will be held on the same night (August 30). The reception is free and open to the public. Everyone is encouraged to come see the exhibition, find out who the winners are first, and meet some of the artists. Light refreshments will be provided.
Don Griffiths’ exhibition will close on September 21, 2019. F/Stop will close on September 28, 2019.
