PhotoPlace Gallery: Animalia

Call for Entries: Animalia


Reveal the essence of a member of the animal kingdom: its intrinsic nature, its motion, its vulnerability, its power, or the way it relates to humans. All capture methods and processes are welcome.

We are very pleased that Traer Scott will jury the exhibit. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the Middlebury gallery, and up to 40 for our Online gallery. All 75 selected images will be promoted on social media, reproduced in the exhibition print catalog, and remain permanently on our website, with links to photographer’s URL.

Traer Scott is an award-winning fine art and commercial photographer and author of fourteen books including her bestseller Shelter Dogs and Finding Home: Shelter Dogs and Their Stories. Her work is exhibited around the world and is regularly featured in national and international print and online publications.

Her series Natural History has been the subject of three museum exhibits: University of Maine Museum of Art in 2015, the Griffin Museum of Photography in 2018 and the American Museum of the Americas in 2019 and numerous gallery exhibits. Her work has also been seen in the leading outdoor exhibitions, “The Fence” and “Photoville”.

She is a past recipient of the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts Photography Fellowship Grant and the Helen Woodward Humane Award for animal welfare activism. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island with her husband, daughter and menagerie.
