Please note: All works must be framed/ready for hanging in a professional manner with appropriate hanging hardware in place. No saw-tooth hangers will be accepted. Please use sturdy, well-made frames. Once the work is delivered FPAC reserves the right to reject work that differs from submitted images, work that is unprofessionally framed or mounted or work that shows obvious signs of wear and tear.
Eligibility: Current and recent photography students/grads are eligible to submit. Must be a graduate student ’17 or recent graduate of ’16 with primarily photo/video based work. There is no submission fee.
