“In an effort to broaden the scope of what is offered, coupled with new technologies, the Phillips’ Mill Photo Show Committee is looking to create an easier platform for digital photography,” the group said in a news release. “In order to achieve these goals, the Photo Show Committee has opted to take a year off to regroup and rebrand. The show will return in 2020 with Photo Show 2.0 for the 27th exhibition.”
Spencer Saunders, the exhibition’s founder, oversee the program’s transition, and hopes to offer new opportunities for photographers, including promoting award winners, monthly newsletters, photo workshops, roundtable discussions, and lecture series.
The exhibition’s theme since its inception has remained “Photography as Art” and “Photographer as Artist.” Since 1992, jurors review each year’s submissions and select between 135 and 150 images to be displayed during the annual exhibition. Photographers are encouraged to submit a body of work created within the past five years to keep the work as fresh and current as possible. Images may be in any photographic medium, from historic to alternative and digital.
The photography exhibition is held at the 1756 grist mill located at 2619 River Road, just north of New Hope.
