Our juried shows provide an excellent opportunity to continue to create and showcase your work after completion of courses. In each session, there will be 3 level prizes granted to the best series of photographs. Winners will be announced on the day of the exhibit. All participating students will have their work listed on PhotoManhattan.com as well as through our Facebook and Tumblr pages. Participants can bring their guests.

Selection Criteria
Work should be in a series of 3 to 6 photographs created within the last 2 years. All photographs should be part of one body of work. When making your selection is important to consider the following:
* Coherence in the body of work yet uniqueness in each individual photograph (avoid repetition)
* Technical proficiency (consistency in all photographs)
* Creativity including subject matter, technique, style, and artist's statement
* Quantity of photographs. During the exhibition, each student will have a chance to present a brief description of their body of work.
