We feel that photography deserves its own competition with a judge who’s a photographer. 

Additionally, the Winslow Art Center has historically run classes and workshops in drawing, painting, collage etc.  Branching out into online photography classes is new for us.  We offer many more drawing and painting classes than photography classes, so we’re not sure how much interested there would be in a photography competition. If you are interested in entering a photography competition, please click the button below to take our survey and let us know.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions on future juried shows and competitions.
