The call for the Portfolio Review is closed for 2023. The text below is for reference only and is subject to change in future calls.
Our Portfolio Review is an excellent opportunity for emerging and established photographers to have valuable discussions about their work, establish professional connections, explore publishing and exhibition opportunities. It is FREE to apply. Applications will be juried by a SlowExposures panel and limited to 12 participants. Each selected participant will then pay a fee of $150 to guarantee their review session (consisting of three 20- minute reviews). Photographers will be asked to bring 15-20 printed images of their submitted body of work to the review. First choice of juror session will be honored as much as possible but cannot be guaranteed.
The Main Show is closed for 2023. The text below is for reference only and is subject to change in future calls.
Renowned for its intimate, relaxed setting in the rural countryside of west central Georgia, SlowExposures will present four days of amazing photography–all displayed in historic, late 19th century buildings throughout Pike County.
After the SlowE weekend, the show will be presented for a month at the Cochran Gallery in LaGrange, Georgia.
We invite photographers to submit work that captures the diversity, contradictions, and complexity of the contemporary rural American South. The selections for the Main Exhibition will highlight a weekend of over a dozen satellite shows, portfolio reviews, seminars, and career-changing networking opportunities. Your entry for the Main Exhibition will also entitle you to a discount to enter one of the highlights of the SlowE weekend: The PopUp Tour of solo shows around Pike County’s Courthouse Square in Zebulon.
Your participation in this year’s show starts by entering up to six images of work taken in the rural regions of Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Louisiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.
First Place (Paul Conlan Award): $500 and a solo show during next year’s SlowExposures
Second Place: $300
Third Place: $200
