2024 Northern Focus Photography Project Accepting Submissions April 1 – May 31

Northern Focus is a project conceived by the Fargo Public Library for up-and-coming, regional photographers with the aim to provide a free space, for artist and viewer alike, to showcase artwork and share local perspectives. This spring, the library is hosting the fifth annual Northern Focus photography project. We are asking photographers from the region to send us their best work to grace our downtown Main Library location in a photo exhibit.

Photographs selected as honorable mentions will specially featured, and the winning photo will become the front cover art for the Northern Narratives 2024 publication. We are accepting online submissions from April 1 through May 31, 2024 via our Wufoo link. The program is open to Adults and Teens (13 years and older).
