We invite all photographers to enter Journey to Growth’s 2017 We Are More… Photo Exhibition. Selected images will be showcased in the We Are More… touring exhibit throughout Southeastern Minnesota. Images will be selected on their depiction of economic diversity and inclusivity in the region.

(Note: Failure to comply with these rules will lead to the disqualification of your entry!)
-Both professional and amateur photographers are welcome to enter the contest.
-You may submit up to three images, but only one image per photographer will be selected for the touring exhibit.
-Entrants must not infringe on the rights of any other photographer or person, or submit images that involve the willful harassment of wildlife or damage to the environment by the photographer.
-All photos must accurately reflect the subject matter as it appeared in the viewfinder. Nothing should be added to or taken away from the image. Exceptions include:

  • Removal of dust spots
  • Normal processing of RAW image files
  • Minor adjustments to color and contrast
  • Minimal cropping
  • HDR and focus stacking, provided all manipulation is disclosed upon entry

Photographers whose images pass into the semi-final rounds of judging will be required to send us high-resolution files (300 ppi Tiffs and RAW files if available) and captions for final judging.
