McPherson Arts Alliance Photography Competition

The McPherson Arts Alliance announces a photography competition.  The theme is “Travel”. This summer, while you’re sitting astride an elephant in the jungles of Africa, or exploring the back roads of Kansas, capture those memorable moments to enter into the MAA competition.  Photography submitted to this show will be displayed in the VAAM Gallery next January and February.  MAA is announcing the show now to inspire your creative photography this summer.  Check here and the MAA website this fall for an announcement giving the format and other particulars for submitting your pictures.  Questions can be posted on the McPherson Arts Alliance Facebook page or directed to 241-6131.


All readers in the McPherson area are encouraged to enter this show. The travel theme will be interpreted broadly.  It won’t be the exotic locale that the judges will look at, but the mood of the picture, or the visual contrasts, or the story it tells which will make it memorable.  MAA expects to offer prizes.  The competition may be a way off, but this announcement gives you time to give it your best shot.
