Consequently, a handful of organizations, led by artists, photographers, and globetrotters, have come together to establish the National Photographic Society, an international platform to give photographers the name recognition they deserve but are largely missing out during the pandemic.

By showcasing a brilliant photographer, we intend to highlight the works of the greatest artistic talents around the world. We’re looking for works that don’t just record a subject but express the vision of the photographer to make an interconnected artistic statement. In this sense, a photographer shooting with a camera is akin to an artist painting with a brush.

To ensure contributions from a wide and diverse swathe of contestants, we have an Open theme for our Solo Exhibitions. You can pursue all subject matters, including street photography, portrait, artistic photography, nature, wildlife, urban, urban, landscapes, fashion, documentary, abstract, nude, still life, etc. In all cases, what we’re looking for is creativity in any of the subjects in which you choose to participate.

Photography enthusiasts of various skill level, including amateurs, experts, and professionals are invited to enter. Please submit between 5 and 10 images so we’re able to judge a cohesive body of works from you. Regardless of the number of images submitted, there's a $35 flat fee to enter the contest.
When you click ENTER, you'll be taken to the payment page, 
Upon successful payment processing, you will be redirected to the submission page where you can upload your portfolio.
Please make sure you read and understand the SOLO EXHIBITION RULES .
