The Texas Photographic Society is teaming up with the Museum of the Big Bend and the McDonald Observatory to host their new exhibition. The theme for this exhibition is titled "At Night." (get it? As in, "the stars at night are big and bright")

At Night will be a 50-image exhibition held at the Museum of the Big Bend in Alpine from June 11 to September 5, and will spotlight one of our greatest natural resources- the dark sky. The call for entry seeks photography that explores all aspects and subjects of urban and rural nightlife photography from twilight to dawn, including astral photos, city lights, wildlife, and landscapes.

At Night is open to artists at least 18 years old, of all levels internationally. There is an entry fee- for current Texas Photographic Society (TPS) Members it is $30 for 5 images, plus $6 for each additional image. The Non-Member entry fee is $38 for 5 images, plus $6 for each additional image. You may enter up to 12 images. You do not have to be a member of TPS to enter. However, you may enter the competition, join TPS or renew as a member at the same time and pay the Current TPS Member entry fee of $30.

There will be a cash prize, as this exhibition will be juried by renowned night photographer Lance Keimig. First place wins $500, second place wins $300, third place wins $200 and up to 5 honorable mentions may be awarded. Keimig will select 50 images for exhibition.

Deadline for entries is April 5th. You can find out image requirements and enter your photography by clicking here.
