The FCAC Photography Guild is a group of area photographers, both hobbyist and professional, that enjoy meeting once a month to exchange ideas, knowledge, and inspiration related to the creative and technical world of photography. The guild is supported by the Franklin County Arts Council which is a nonprofit organization that is passionate about serving the diverse community in developing all areas of the arts.
This will be a judged show open to photographers of all levels, all ages, amateur or professional. Entries should be appropriate material for the general public viewing. Members of the Guild and the Arts Council will have final decision if a piece is suitable for display. Eligible work of still photography regardless of process, chemical or digital are accepted.
