LACP’s 2nd Annual Project Exhibition

1st Place winner will receive $1,000


In 2020, the LACP team just finished installing a first annual project exhibition when the world shut down. The last nail was hammered into the wall as the official announcement of lockdown was released and shifted life as we had known for a very, very long time. As we are navigating the long-term effects of that moment, and are re-building toward an uncertain future, we wanted to reflect on where we had been and where we are all headed.

How are contemporary image-based artists processing the impact of the past two years? Did practices change? Have interests shifted? What are some of the universal themes and personal experiences that now drive photographic production? How did the experience of isolation impact the materials conditions of photographic practice, and how are artists revisiting previous modes of production now that they are able to go back to public labs, darkrooms and capture people outdoors and indoors again? What have we learned? What are we taking with us, and what are we leaving behind?

LACP is now accepting submissions for an exhibition focusing on photographic projects. The selected projects will be featured in a virtual exhibition and at a pop-up exhibition, held as part of LACP’s holiday party on Saturday, December 10, 4-7 pm PST, 2022. Location TBA.


1st Place winner will receive $1,000; 2nd Place winner will receive a $500 LACP gift card; 3rd Place winner will receive $250 LACP gift card.
Honorable Mentions: Other artists selected to exhibit a project series will receive honorable mentions.


The exhibition is open internationally to photographers of all levels. The juror, Ann Jastrab, will select images based on creativity, originality, and quality. LACP invites photographers working in all mediums and styles to take part in the exhibition. A project series is defined as a body of work with at least six images sharing a common thread/theme. The deadline to send digital files for consideration is Thursday, November 3, 2022.
