If you've dreamed of seeing your photos in an exhibition, or wondered what your photography would look like on the walls of your favorite coffee shop, now's your chance!
Each year, photographers reach out to venues to join the country's largest annual community-based photography festival. From sandwich shops and nail salons to the walls of The High Museum, venues across the city collaborate with artists and photographers to transform Atlanta with the power of photography.
Deadline is July 8 to submit your photography-related event or exhibition for the ACP 2018 Festival Guide. If you've been waiting to share your work with the world, it's your turn!
(Please note: there will be no deadline extension in 2018!)

Nothing happens without you. We're so happy that you're part of Atlanta Celebrates Photography. In fact, without you, there isn't a photo festival every October, or any of our other events throughout the year. You attend our events, share your photographs with the community, and volunteer to help in so many ways.
Now we need one more thing from you: your financial support. Please make a gift to support the work you are a part of.
We're sure you're moved by this photograph from ACP Board member Jerry Atnip. The gentle power Jerry captured doesn't let go. We're fortunate to have people like you and Jerry in our community, people who care about photography. As ACP celebrates our 20th year, please help with a gift.
Please consider making a gift in support of ACP.
