FIVE days left to participate in #acpfest!

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!)

It’s About You

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.

Thank you.

Please consider making a gift in support of ACP.

Save Our Date: Oct. 6, ACP 20th Anniversary Auction Gala

Announcing our Honorary Chairpersons for the 2018 ACP Auction Gala!

Laura Adams and Andrew Feiler will add both style and substance to the 2018 festivities. Laura is a nationally exhibited visual artist. Her signature collage technique employs meticulous layering to create seemingly three-dimensional works celebrating themes of nature. Andrew, Laura's husband, is an artistic and documentary photographer. He serves on numerous boards, is active in civic endeavors, and is as a conscientious advisor to elected officials and political candidates.

Together Laura and Andrew opened Brickworks Gallery on the Atlanta BeltLine in late 2016. Featuring the work of over 25 artists, Brickworks Gallery is dedicated to showcasing the work of talented and inspired artists whose work tells compelling stories.

Let's join together and celebrate photography in Atlanta on October 6th! Tickets available soon.

Help Us Find THE FENCE a New Home!

After an incredibly successful four-year run on the Atlanta Beltline's Eastside Trail, THE FENCE finds itself in need of a new home for October.

What we need:

1. An existing fence that spans a minimum of 700 feet (or proximate sections totaling at least 700 feet) for us to attach THE FENCE.
2. Must be in a safe, pedestrian-active zone (THE FENCE is not suitable for viewing from a car and is best seen on foot or bicycle).
 
If you know a great location in Fulton County, where THE FENCE can be presented in its entirety, please let us know.

Over the last four years, THE FENCE has showcased some of the world's best photography from an international call for entries (including The FENCE 2017 Juror's Choice winner, Atlanta's own Joshua McFadden).
 
As the largest public exhibition of photography in North America, THE FENCE will appear simultaneously in eight cities in 2018, including Brooklyn, Boston, Durham, Denver, Santa Fe, Sarasota, and Calgary.

ACP appreciates all the love, support & attention you've given THE FENCE on the Eastside Trail over the last four years. We look forward to showcasing THE FENCE in it's new location as we celebrate ACP's 20th anniversary this October!
 
Please fill out this form to let us know if you can help find THE FENCE a new home!
 
Regards and thanks,

- ACP
