The Photoville FENCE is a year-round public photography project exhibited in major parks and downtowns across North America.

The Photoville FENCE is open to photographers from all around the globe. Entrants must be at least 18 years of age as of the date of entry.

Featuring over 85 photographers annually, the exhibition brings compelling visual stories into the public realm, and to a wide and diverse audience.

Photographers are invited to participate by submitting their work for consideration by a jury of over 50 international art professionals. The resulting exhibition is presented in 9 cities (and growing!) in partnership with local cultural and civic organizations – Atlanta, Brooklyn, Boston, Calgary, Denver, Durham, Houston, Sarasota and Seattle.

We welcome everything from documentary & photojournalism to fine art & conceptual work, and everything in between. What makes The Photoville FENCE special is that it’s a celebration of photography and visual storytelling, in all its many forms.

The winners of the 9th edition of The Photoville FENCE will be announced in June 2020.
