TAMPA, Fla., May 7, 2018 — Calling all photographers! The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts is now accepting submissions for its 18th annual Members Show.

Museum members can submit photographic art to the show by July 20. There will be five categories featured in this year’s exhibition: People and Portraits, Travel, Landscape and Cityscape, Animals and Nature, Still Life, Abstract.

All submissions will be installed in the museum’s Community Gallery. An opening reception and awards ceremony will be held at the museum from 5-7 p.m. on July 27. Winners from each category will receive a prize awarded by our sponsors.

“The Members Show is a great opportunity for both members and the museum,”
said FMoPA Executive Director Zora Carrier, Ph.D. “It allows us to showcase our members’ talent and diverse perspectives, while also helping them gain exposure for their work.”

To participate in the show, each artist must already be a member of the museum or sign up for a membership at the time of submission.

Members are allowed one physical entry for a $35 submission fee. Household membership holders may submit two entries.

The second submission is $25 or free for monthly donors. Members can take advantage of becoming a monthly donor if they wish to submit a second entry.
