Photographic Center Northwest (PCNW) is pleased to announce the opening of our call for entries for the 21st Annual PCNW Juried Exhibition, and our esteemed juror, Sandra Phillips, Curator Emeritus, SF MoMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art).  Emerging and experienced photographers are invited to submit to this opportunity—selections are made by the juror, Sandra Phillips, and will result in a 3 month long exhibition at PCNW in the spring of 2017.

In an effort to continue to provide meaningful professional opportunities to regional photographic artists, PCNW is shifting to a biennial schedule for its juried exhibition, alternating annually with its Foto Revu portfolio and networking event which will next take place in spring 2018.


We are honored that Sandra Phillips has agreed to jury this year's exhibition; she enters the new status as Curator Emeritus at SF MoMA after 29 years there as first curator then senior curator of photography.  During her time at the museum, the Department of Photography has presented more than 200 exhibitions and accessioned more than 11,000 works.



All entries must be submitted via by 10:59pm February 5th, 2017 (Pacific Time)


The entry fee is $50 for 5 jpgs (minimum) and we encourage an artist’s statement. You may add additional jpgs for $5 each, up to 10 total. Payment must be in U.S. Dollars. Entry fees are non-refundable.


A list of accepted artists will be posted on this page in mid/late February. Selected artists will be notified by email and telephone. The framed work will need to arrive by March 16th, 2017. Artists will be responsible for shipping their framed work to and from the gallery.


Work selected by the judge for the juried show will be exhibited at the Photographic Center Northwest. All sales of work in the juried show will be conducted by PCNW and PCNW will retain a 50% commission on all work sold. The artist can determine if they wish to sell their work.
