This call for entry puts the focus on the final product of the artist vision, the photographic print or object, not the jpeg on the screen. Rfotofolio wants to encourage and promote the art of making the photographic print.
This call for entries will be judged not only on the image, but by the craft, skill, and quality of presentation.
All media are welcome, including but not limited to traditional film, digital, collage, three-dimensional, encaustic, small books, and alternative processes. When you participate in our call for entry you are helping in growing the Rfotofolio Grant. Thank you.
Merit winners will be included in our on-line gallery, interviews, future publications, and be invited to future exhibitions.
