Throughout the months of July and August, applicants submitted their entries for a chance to have their work exhibited and published during the Atlanta Celebrates Photography Festival.

This year’s applicants are juried by Stephanie Dowda DeMar, an Atlanta-based photographer and experimental media artist. Dowda’s work has been published in Dialogue, Bad at Sports, MuseA, ArtsATL and BurnAway, among others.
