Allegany National Photography Competition & Exhibition (ANPCE)

April 2-23, 2022 • 11:00 AM to 5:00PM Daily • Free

The Allegany National Photography Competition & Exhibition is one of the Allegany Arts Council's signature events, now entering its eighth year. Established in 2015, it began as a way to showcase photography talent in the region, but quickly grew into a nationally-recognized competition.

The competition has steadily grown in popularity, receiving nearly 1000 entries nationwide from photographers representing 41 states. Today, the show serves as a model for other organizations seeking to develop programs of their own.

This year's competition features three categories: black and white (monochrome), color, and photography as sculpture. A Public Opening & Awards Reception is scheduled for Saturday, April 2, 2022, from 6:00PM-8:00PM.
