IN A NUTSHELL
National Photographic Society encourages all amateur and professional photographers around the world to submit their best photos to be considered for their monthly Solo Exhibitions. Annually, one photographer from the 12 Solo Exhibitions will win the Grand Prize amount of $1,000. You will need to submit between 5 and 10 photos for the Solo Exhibition. If selected, you will also be asked to provide a Statement and Biography to be included with your show. National Photographic Society is a nonprofit organization and uses the non-refundable fees to provide prizes and awards, and to help advance its core missions.
RULES OF THE GAME
Files are required to be less than 2 MB and must be only in JPEG or JPG formatting. Please ensure that there aren’t any watermarks and signatures since all photos are judged anonymously, so having these will disqualify your submissions. The Solo Exhibition is based on an open theme, and as a photographer, you are given the widest latitude to build on any central category as you see fit.
It’s necessary to ensure that all photos and titles are in the correct order before your final submission since there is no way to correct any mistakes once your works are submitted. You also will not be able to add to, change, or delete from, any of the photos submitted. For the Solo Exhibition, you will need a cohesive body of works on any theme of your choosing.
