In celebration of the 15th annual AMPC exhibition the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts (TCVA) is bringing back a popular program open to all photographers who submit their artwork to the annual competition. In-person portfolio reviews will be available on a lottery system, which will give photographers a chance to have a one on one portfolio review with one of our professional photographers who are leading the reviews this year.
The Appalachian Mountain Photography Competition offers numerous categories that will be chosen as winners with over $4,000 in cash and prizes. A panel of professional photographers will review all entries and narrow them down to approximately 50 images that will be displayed in exhibition at the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts, March 2 - June 2, 2018. From those images, the judges will select the final winners which will be showcased during the exhibition.
