The Lunch Box Gallery is pleased to announce the call for submissions for its SUMMER PHOTO SHOW 2011. The exhibit will be displayed from September 10th to October 4th of the same year.
The Lunch Box Gallery is a small but vibrant and cutting edge space founded in 2011 and located in the popular Wynwood Art District of Miami. Its mission is to show and support the work of emerging regional, national and international artists of all media, with a particular emphasis on contemporary photography and its new trends; and where styles like conceptual, fine art, documentary and mixed media photography are subjects of exploration.
The Lunch Box Gallery also provides a venue for dialogue across all art forms, with the idea of creating a link between the community and the artists, and therefore bringing a deeper appreciation and perceptiveness of photography through exhibitions, discussions and lectures. [email protected]


Deadline: July 13th
The purpose of the Aperture Portfolio Prize is to identify trends in contemporary photography and specific artists whom we can help by bringing them to a wider audience. In choosing the first-prize winner and runners-up, we are looking for work that is fresh and that hasn’t been widely seen in major publications or exhibition venues.

In 2011, first prize is $3,000 and an exhibition at Aperture Foundation. The first-prize winner and runners-up are featured in Aperture’s website for approximately one year. Winners are also announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches thousands of subscribers in the photography community.

The entry period for the 2011 Aperture Portfolio Prize is from Monday, May 2 through Wednesday, July 13, 12:00 noon EDT. All entrants will be contacted with final results by the end of 2011.

Deadline for FotoFest 2012 approaching. Ends July 14 2011
FotoFest boasts sixteen days of Portfolio Reviews, from March 16 – April 3, 2012, organized in FOUR 4-DAY SESSIONS and open to all photographic artists.
Spaces are limited and fill up early.
Over its 28-year history, the Meeting Place has been a launching pad for the careers of hundreds of photographic artists. In 2012, it will bring 160 curators, editors, publishers, gallerists, collectors and photo agency representatives to review the work of registered artists.
This review only takes place every 2 years and is by far the biggest of its kind.
