Picturing Home: Dallas Center for Photography

Submit photos that illustrate how your home experience is evolving.


Home is both a place and a state of mind. It can be comforting or challenging, personal or communal, but always evocative. For many of us the idea and reality of home is changing. Our schedules, our relationships and the way we interact with our family and neighbors are all being reinvented. DCP invites you to enter this juried competition with photographs that illustrate how your home experience is evolving as we adapt and change during this unique time in history. The call is open to everyone. Students under 18 years old are encouraged to enter the Youth Category.

Selections will be featured in a virtual exhibition on the DCP website. We are also planning to have an exhibition catalog in book form that will be available for purchase. DCP will host a virtual opening reception on Saturday, July 18 that is free and open to the public. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third winners in both the youth and adult categories.

Discounts for students and DCP members. Contact DCP for more info.
