The SRO Photo Gallery hosts an annual national competition for six to eight photographic art solo exhibitions. Portfolios are reviewed by a committee consisting of the Photography area of the School of Art and the Director of Landmark Arts. We look for portfolios that utilize photography in all styles, techniques, and aesthetic approaches. Consistency in the work as well as creative vision is important in the selection process.

We are only able to display artwork without framing (either matted or mounted on thin backing). The maximum dimensions an individual print can be for display are 30 x 72 x 1 inches. We are unable to display video works.

A brochure listing the selected artists along with a reproduction of their work and exhibition dates is published annually and distributed locally and nationally. To view this year’s selected artists, visit Entries must be submitted to SlideRoom at by March 27, 2015. While there is no submission fee to apply to SRO Photo Gallery for consideration, there is a $10 SlideRoom submission fee. Selected artists will be announced in late April 2015.
