2020-06-27 2020-07-18 America/New_York 6th Annual Allegany National Photography Competition & Exhibition

New dates have been announced for the Allegany Arts Council's 6th Annual Allegany National Photography Competition and Exhibition (ANPCE), which will now be held June 27-July 18, 2020.

In light of ongoing limitations due to COVID-19, the 6th Annual Allegany National Photography Competition & Exhibition will be going virtual. We are very excited to bring you this first-ever, online show and are planning some exciting surprises!

About the Show

Since its inception, the ANPCE has continued to grow in popularity with both photographers and those who enjoy the varying perspectives and techniques represented in the competition. This year's competition and exhibition will feature photographs in three categories: monochrome (black and white), color, and experimental, which in 2020 will focus on photography as sculpture

The Virtual Experience

Our team is hard at work building our first-ever, virtual gallery experience, which will be found at www.alleganyphotoshow.org. The site will include information about our invited artists, a digital gallery, a map showing our 2020 entries, past award winners, and will host our LIVE! Public Awards & Juror Fireside Chat on Saturday, June 27, 2020, beginning at 6:30PM.  Mark your calendars, and the URL above, for launch updates!

Juror

We are pleased to announce the juror for the 2020 competition is Brownie Harris, acclaimed national photographer.

Whether photographing the luminaries of our time or ordinary people at work in factories and on farms, Harris has always remain focused on telling the story of his subjects.

After receiving his BFA in Communication Arts & Design from Virginia Commonwealth University, Harris headed to New York City, where he spent time driving a taxi, painting lofts, and working as a photo assistant. He landed a job as Graphic Designer for the Educational Broadcasting Corporation and soon after, at 22, created the photography department for the New York City PBS affiliate.

Since then, Harris’ portfolio has vastly grown to include portraiture, architectural photography, work for television and film production, and lifestyle and travel photography on location around the world.

For more than 40 years, Harris has traveled on assignment, creating iconic portraitures of John F. Kennedy, Jr., Carly Simon, Stephen King and Paul Newman; doing photography work for film and prime-time television productions, including Sleepy Hollow, Revolution and most recently, The Act, a Hulu original series.

After spending years living in New York and Paris, Harris today calls Wilmington, North Carolina, home.
