This show is to become an annual event, and the best work at exhibited at the dance photography show will be exhibited at future pop-up gallery exhibits we are planning in the Mid-Atlantic region in Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York City, and of course during our annual show during DC Fotoweek

Artomatic is coming up, and this exhibit will help you to prepare for major local art events, network at our reception and gallery lectures, as well as learn more about gallery practices and professional presentation of your artwork.

You agree that we will do the prints for you on archival paper on our Epson 9900 wide carriage printer. After the show is over, the prints are of course yours to keep!

Please, keep in mind that images will be printed LARGE, about 30'' by 40'' at 300 dpi. Along with your submission, send us your contact info and the title of the image.

Each selected image will be printed in two sizes:
