How to Participate:
Plan your event (artists / venues).

Benefits of participating in ACP 2019 include:

  • Extensive publicity and promotion of your event, with a regional marketing campaign
  • Photographers benefit from increased exposure
  • Listings are actively seen by tens of thousands of people through the printed, online guides, and iPhone app
  • Participation entitles your events and news to be promoted year round on ACP Now!

Every listing will have an image. The best way to draw attention to your event in a photography festival is to include an image that you have permission to publish. If you cannot select an image to use, please consider a logo, or a photo of the interior of the venue.

In 2019, ACP will have an enhanced online Festival Guide. The Festival Guide will include tags again, be Google-friendly, and it will again be available as an iPhone app & a downloadable PDF. In 2019, we're planning to introduce an Android app, as well! As always, each listing will have its own page, with a unique link and location.

Get Started:
  • Gather your event, artist & venue info. Descriptions for your listing in the printed Festival Guide are limited to 12 words; 250 words for the web listing.
  • Printed guides are targeted for distribution starting on Sept 5th. ACP recommends that your Main Event occur between late-September and October 31st.
  • You'll need a large jpg that you have permission to publish, between 1000 and 3000 pixels on its longest side.
