The Art Guild announces ‘Shedding Light on the Subject’ juried exhibit


The Art Guild invites all photographers to enter “Shedding Light on the Subject,” a juried competition and exhibition.

Angle, standpoint, viewpoint. What makes your photographic perspective special and captivating? We’re looking for creativity and originality – work that reflects your unique approach and style.

All photographers 18 years and older (high school students ages 14-18 years may enter in the student category) are invited to submit up to three photographic works for consideration.

The deadline for submissions is midnight Jan. 12. A prospectus can be downloaded at
