The Octagon Center for the Arts in Ames, Iowa has an exciting CALL FOR ENTRIES opportunity available for hobby, emerging, and professional photographers!
This fall, the Octagon is hosting the Smithsonian Institute Exhibition, Hometown Teams. In addition to this awesome exhibit, we have chosen the theme Community Sports for Aperture 2018: The Biennial Juried Photography Exhibit, which will be hung adjacent to the Smithsonian Institute Exhibit.
Some fun facts about Aperture 2018:
- This year, our jurors are Dan and Alex McClanahan of McClanahan Studio in Ames. Recently, Dan won the Bronze Medal for nature photography in the 2018 World Photographic Cup, essentially the Olympics for photography! Dan and Alex also do much of the photography for ISU athletics.
- We have a youth division this year! So please share with the budding photographers in your life.
