The good folks at are better suited to assist you with technical issues with your online entry. For assistance, please contact (during weekday business hours, Mountain Standard Time).  

The method by which ALL exhibitions are juried at Art Saint Louis is always a fair and blind (anonymous) process. What this means is that at no time before or during the jurying process do our Jurors know the names of entering artists. The Jurors are presented all entrants' JPEGs in an anonymous digital image presentation and the only information provided to them pertains to the artwork and includes the following: artwork title, year, media, dimensions, and method of presentation (displayed on the wall, sits on a pedestal). Jurors are never shown the names of any artists. All artworks that you submit for jurying are presented one after the other in the presentation that the jurors view. So, if you are artist #25, your artworks/entries are in the presentation after artist #24 and before artist #26. From the jurying presentation and information provided about the artworks, the jurors make their selections for the final exhibit. Artwork selection decisions are in part based on a set of specific jurying instructions & criteria relating to the theme of the exhibit as well as specific conditions & rules of the Gallery. For non-thematic exhibitions, a well-rounded exhibit is based on the Jurors' aesthetics along with general exhibition criteria established for all exhibits by Art Saint Louis' Artistic Director. This is a blind process and at no time are the Jurors shown entrants' names, and oftentimes they do not even see names for selected artists until they arrive to the Gallery to view the final exhibit on the Gallery walls. Ours is a fair jurying process.   

All artworks must either have a sale price or be marked Not for Sale (NFS). No works marked POR (price on request) will be accepted. Artist's sale prices listed with original entry submitted for jurying may not be changed after entry deadline (October 21, 2015). All sales are through Art Saint Louis with 30% donation/commission on work sold to ASL and 70% to artist. Sale price includes Art Saint Louis' commission. Artist responsible for delivery of sold work to buyer at end of exhibit. Artworks are insured at 50% of retail value during exhibit. Artist responsible for work in transit to/from ASL. 

  • All work selected for exhibit must be delivered to Gallery ready to install.
  • 2-d work must be framed & equipped with hanging wire stretched across back of artwork.
  • NO sawtooth hangers, clip-style frames or keyhole mounts.
  • French Cleat mounts okay.
  • Paintings may be framed, strip-framed or gallery-wrapped.
  • 2-d works must be framed or, if not framed, pre-approved presentation.

PhotoPlace Gallery: Black and White 
Juror: Tillman Crane

Submissions close on Monday, July 13, 2015

Monochrome images of any subject you choose. Digital, traditional silver gelatin, and alternative process images are all welcome.

Tillman Crane has agreed to jury this exhibition and we're honored to have his enthusiastic eye. He will choose 35 photographs for exhibition in the gallery, and up to 40 additional images for the gallery's Online Annex. All selected  photographs will be reproduced in the exhibition catalog.

Until July 1, submit up to TEN photographs for $30, $7 for each additional.

Submit images

About the Juror: Tillman Crane began his career in 1978 as a photojournalist for The Maryville Daily Times. Ten years later, he began to teach his craft. While platinum/
palladium photographs remain his passion, he was quick to integrate digital vocabulary into his practice. As the medium continues to evolve and Tillman along with it, the content of the artist's images has remained constant -- the ordinary, found in the everyday environments that surround him.

Until July 1, submit up to TEN photographs for $30, $7 for each additional.

Submitting images is now fast and easy! One-time registration (no more copy-and-paste applications), upload of images directly from the site (no more emailing images), and a big and beautiful display of juror selections.


To help artists defray costs and to encourage submissions from distant photographers, PhotoPlace Gallery offers to mat and frame work selected for exhibition free of charge, providing artists print their images to our pre-cut mat and frame sizes. Custom mat sizes and printing services are also available at moderate additional cost.
All selected work will be included in an exhibition catalog, available for purchase.

International Competition for Photographs and Photo-Based Artwork at Umbrella Arts, New York City. Conceived and juried by Harvey Stein, Director of Photography, Umbrella Arts; photographer, educator, author, curator
We are seeking photographs of animals that are a bit unusual and out of the ordinary, not the conventionally cute images that are often seen.  The photographs certainly can be amusing, interesting, frank and biting.  
We define animal as anything that breathes and is not human.  

The tone can convey an appreciation of the joys and difficulties experienced by animals in the essentially absurd predicament of domestication.   Animals pictured in environments from homes to zoos, from city streets to rural farms, from natural habitats to the ends of the earth, with and without man are all sought.
The exhibition is open to all photographers working in color, black & white, film, digital, and beyond, etc.   Any format, any camera, any style is acceptable.
“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”-Groucho  Marx
