Northern Focus Photography Project Starts April 20 and Runs Through June 1, 2020

This spring we are asking regional, amateur photographers to send us their best work to grace our downtown location in a photo exhibit—and one lucky artist will get their photograph on the front cover of Northern Narratives 2020!

Are you an amateur photographer? The Fargo Public Library is seeking submissions for its first Northern Focus photography project for area adults and teens age 13 and older. Submissions will be accepted online only from now through June 1, 2020 to our WuFoo link.

See the guidelines, rules, and information for the 2020 Northern Focus photography project here.

All photos must be taken regionally (within ND/reciprocal MN) and convey a sense of the people, places, and/or happenings that make up our diverse community and region. There is no fee to enter the Northern Focus photography project. By submitting a photo, you certify that you are the author and copyright holder of the photo. Please note: it is the artist’s responsibility to obtain model releases from their subjects. A sample model release is available here, if you need one.

Entries can be of any photographic medium (black/white, color, digital, manipulated, etc.). Submitted photos must be suitable for public display and community viewing as determined by the library. Obscene, provocative, or otherwise questionable content will not be considered.

All accepted photo entries will be included in a photo exhibit at the downtown Main Library later this year. In addition, one photo will be selected as the cover art for the library’s 2020 Northern Narratives publication.

The Northern Focus project is supported by the Friends of the Fargo Public Library.
