Winter Salon Open call for submissions

Our final show of the year will be our Winter Salon. This will be the 3rd year PhotoHaus gallery has held this exhibition and as  before it will be an open-themed show. This means that you can send us your best photographs, no matter what the subject matter is.

‘Give the gift of photography this Christmas’

Once again we will be encouraging you to price your work to sell. This year we have decided to set a cap of $200 as the maximum that you can sell your work. This should be taken into consideration when choosing your images for submission. We will be promoting the exhibition as a collection of affordable photography, encouraging those that attend to ‘give the gift of photography this Christmas’

Please note: Photo Haus Gallery will take absolutely no commissions on any sales, this exhibition is meant to support hard-working photographers and have images shared. Either as a gift to yourself or someone else.

How to Submit Your Photographs

All submissions will be evaluated by a panel of qualified judges. They will look for visual qualities like strength of composition, appropriateness to the Exhibition Theme, overall impact and technical excellence. However we will include at least one image from all who submit to this years Winter Salon.
