Despite the fluctuating limitations on public gathering due to the virus, the NJPF will move forward with plans for the annual November juried exhibit with a few enhancements.

ELIGIBILITY: Open to photographers who can submit their work online for jurying. If accepted and the in-person exhibit can move forward, you agree to ship or hand-deliver your printed works for the physical exhibition. Images must be photo-based and family friendly, no nudes or scary images. Alternative process, mixed media and collage work are welcome. All imagery must be the work of the submitting artist.

The top 75 images will be included in a series of virtual online exhibits featured on the Watchung Arts Center as well as the NJ Photography Forum websites. There will be cash awards for Excellence and Merit. 

  • International press
  • 3 experienced jurors from the international art community
  • In-person exhibit at the Watchung Art Center if the climate allows
  • Zoom conference moderated by the curator to review the exhibit as well as coordinate interviews with several of the artists

If the State of New Jersey or the Watchung Arts Center guidelines are not in favor of the in-person exhibit and wine reception, there will be no physical exhibit. The dual online exhibit, awards, Curator Conference, and international press and sales opportunities will still apply.  More details to accepted artists will follow.
