The New York Film Academy came across another terrific opportunity for our photography students. The Texas Photographic Society, a non-profit organization that celebrates the photographic arts, inspires the creative development of its members, and provides opportunities to engage with diverse audiences, has announced their latest Call For Entries through their Alternative Processes Competition.

Conventional, unmodified digital inkjet prints are not acceptable for entry.
The exhibition is open-themed, and submissions from artists of all levels are encouraged now through January 19. 2015. The entries will be judged by Christopher James, an artist, photographer, professor and renowned author of The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes.
