There are several opportunities for artists to participate in PhotoNOLA, from taking part in our two day portfolio review, to exhibiting work in solo, group and juried exhibitions during the festival.
Attend the Portfolio Review
The PhotoNOLA Portfolio Review is open to seventy photographers on a first come, first served basis. PhotoNOLA is not a juried review, however participants should be emerging to mid-career level photographers, with a solid body of work and a history of exhibitions and/or publications. Reviewers are typically announced in August, and registration typically opens in the first week of September.
Submit an Exhibition Proposal
Each year PhotoNOLA partners with various venues throughout New Orleans to mount photography exhibitions in conjunction with the festival. If you are interested in participating as an exhibiting artist, please complete our Exhibitions Proposal Form. If we find a space that seems an appropriate fit for your work we will put you in touch with that venue.*** Festival dates are December 11 – 14, 2019, with most exhibits running the entire month of December. Submission Deadline: August 1, 2019.
Submit an Exhibition Listing
If you’ve organized a photo-based exhibition in conjunction with PhotoNOLA please submit the information using our Exhibitions Listings Form for inclusion on website and printed guide. Deadline: October 1, 2019
Please note that Oct 1 is a hard deadline for print inclusion. We will offer a one month grace period for late submissions, from Oct 2 – Nov 1 (with a $50 late fee), for inclusion in online listings only. After Nov 1 the form will be closed and we will not accept any additional listings.
For juried show opportunities please check our Calls for Entries page. When exhibition calls related to the festival become available we will share them there.
