The Gwinnett County Public Library has begun accepting submissions from Gwinnett residents for its 2023 Photo Annual Exhibition.

The theme for this year’s exhibition is “Altered” — according to GCPL, “We are looking for broad interpretations of the theme, including fictional narratives, emotional landscapes, literal translations, altered timelines, alternative processes, and more.”

The exhibition is free to enter, and photographers can submit up to five images. The deadline to enter is Aug. 14.

“Any photographic, lens or light-based images are welcome for entry, including staged scenes, manipulated images, mixed media, alternative processes, or anything you can imagine,” GCPL states.

Exhibition entries will be juried by Stephanie Dowda DeMer, an Atlanta-based photographer and experimental media artist whose work has been published in “Dialogue,” “Bad at Sports,” “MuseA,” “ArtsATL” and “BurnAway,” among others. She has taught photography at the university level and was previously the executive director at Atlanta Celebrates Photography.

Selected photographers will have their work exhibited at GCPL’s Duluth branch and published in an exhibition guide during the Atlanta Celebrates Photography festival in October, which includes city-wide exhibitions, lectures, public art, education engagements and photography experiences. Select entries may be displayed at other library branches and in a virtual web exhibit.

The entry form for the exhibition, which includes additional guidelines for submissions, can be found here.
