Salon Photography Contest 2017

Publish Date: Dec 01, 2016

Deadline: Jan 15, 2017

About the Salon

Traditionally an exhibition of works of art by living artists, our Salon is an opportunity for photographers to showcase single images, enabling them to build an audience and dialogue around their work. Photographers are expected to submit a single image on the theme.


Built Environment

Elements of the built environment - structures built by humans, including but not limited to historic and modern buildings and industrial sites - can establish a sense of place in a community, and represent the tone of a culture.

For this salon exhibition, we seek photographs that incorporate structures and the environment they are embedded in. We want to see images that evoke the sensations of being in the built environment.


Photos from eligible submissions will be selected for a group exhibition in February 2017 and displayed on, and highlighted through social media to our over ten thousand viewers.


Important Dates

Submissions due by 15th January, 2017 Midnight Central Time
Applicants will be notified by 30th January, 2017

Submission Entry Fee

Submissions for the Salon are free.

What to Submit

You may submit 1 image for the theme. Photographs must be in a JPEG format. Previously published material for which nonexclusive rights were granted may be submitted as long as you still maintain the rights (see "Image rights" below). You must be able to disclose when and where the photo appeared previously to The Passporte Gallery upon request. For a photo in which a person is recognizable, you are responsible for securing a model release from the subject or, in the case of a minor, the subject’s parent or guardian and provide it to The Passporte Gallery upon request. Similarly, if your photos depict other people’s work (such as sculptures, statues, paintings, and other copyrightable works), you are responsible for obtaining any necessary release from the rights holder and provide it to The Passporte Gallery upon request. Photos that contain sexually explicit, obscene, violent or other objectionable or inappropriate content, as determined by The Passporte Gallery in its sole discretion, are ineligible for consideration for this call for entry.

How to Submit

All images are securely submitted online via Submittable, including all required fields, including name, contact information and other information about your submission. Only submissions via the Submittable page will be accepted. Please do not email images directly to The Passporte Gallery.
Images must be 72 dpi JPEG's with 1500 pixels on the largest side. To submit, create a free account or login to your existing account.


Open to photographers 18 years or older globally, amateur and professional, working in any photographic medium or style.

Image Rights
If you submit a photograph to a Passporte Gallery call for entry, you will retain all rights to any photograph you submit. If you submit a photograph to The Passporte Gallery, you grant The Passporte Gallery royalty-free, nonexclusive rights to publicly display the images on our website and social media platforms.
