2021 Photography Show

Photographers are invited to enter the 2021 Photography Show, sponsored by the Spanish Peaks Arts Council (SPACe), in La Veta, Colorado. Show dates are August 3 – Sept. 4, with awards presented Aug. 7, at the opening reception, 5 – 7 pm.


Photography must be the original concept and creation of the artist. Works created either on film or digitally will be accepted. No artwork that has been in a SPACe Gallery show or in the Gift Shop within the past 12 months will be accepted. Cash prizes will be awarded in 2 categories. Designate in which category the entries should be judged; COLOR or BLACK & WHITE/MONOCHROMATIC*

Photographers are directed to register with the CaFE (Call For Entries) to enter the Photography Show. The deadline to enter is June 26. This is a juried show, which means not all entries will be selected to be in the show. Local photographers must submit entry forms, fees and digital images by June 26 to enter and will be notified by June 30 whether their work has been selected by the jury. All entries will be viewed by the jury digitally on a screen. Photos taken of photos framed under glass often have distracting reflections from the surrounding room.
