Exhibition
Exposure 2024 is the 28th annual PRC Members juried exhibition. Supporting member photographers since 1996, there have been more than 500 photographers have shown in Exposure including an array of those established and emerging in the field. Each year a respected member of the photographic community—from curators to gallerists to publishers—is asked to select between 10 to 15 artists for exhibition. The juror then selects between 2 and 4 pieces per person, thus offering artists an opportunity to showcase their work at a deeper level than most juried shows, and making for a more enriching experience for audiences. Photographers working in a broad range of exhibition-ready bodies of work are encouraged to apply, including traditional and non-traditional approaches to photography. In 2021 to commemorate 25 years of Exposure and further support the photography community, an annual awards program was initiated. Each year the PRC Board of Directors, Creative Director, and exhibition Juror will select three exhibiting artists to receive PRC Choice Awards with a total award amount of $1000.
