2009 EVENT



Organizers are working on the final details of the Homer Photo Fest 2007 featuring citywide photography exhibitions, delectable seafood opening treats, portfolio reviews, workshops, lectures and round table discussions about... (what else) PHOTOGRAPHY!

Here's a snap shot of the Festival: The Homer Photo Fest will take place September 5th - 8th, 2007. This will be four days of workshops, one on one portfolio reviews, public lectures and exhibitions by noted invited national artists: Tom Rankin, and Sylvia Plachy and Michelle Dunn Marsh. All this culminates in the big night featuring the winners of the statewide portfolio competition with concurrent solo exhibitions of the winners work at Homer's own Pratt Museum. If that doesn't get you to Homer then the food will. Each opening night reception will feature along with excellent art, the very best in Wild Alaskan Seafood and other culinary delights. The Homer Photo Fest ends with a seafood banquet dinner as s send off to a very fun filled weekend of photography. Click on the EVENT link for a complete schedule.

There is also a portfolio competition open to photographers statewide. Alaskan photographers working in all photographic mediums and formats are welcome to submit a minimum of 15 (maximum of 20) photographs along with an artist statement about their body of work.
