Our Smorgasburg Beer Garden with night time events, and this year we will be more immersed throughout the park than ever before – giving our photographers and partners even more exposure to the masses!

We are working with some of our great partners from years past as well as some “new blood” – but we’re always looking for new programming partners to join our PHOTOVILLE family, so we’ve reserved a few containers just for that!

From now till May 20, we will be accepting proposals and if a project seems like it would be a good fit within the land of PHOTOVILLE, we will reach out to discuss how to make it all work financially (rental & production expenses), logistically, and most importantly, creatively!”

We are interested in well-designed projects that inspire audiences visually and create meaningful interactions with photographic content.

Projects should combine existing bodies of work with programming or tools that give viewers a deeper, more nuanced understanding of issues and empower them to participate in the process of improving their own or others’ realities. Projects should also include a partnership between a photographer and an organization that combines expertise in documentary photography with experience working on the topic or community the project addresses.”
