Call for Photography!

Interested in having your work exhibited in the largest photography festival in the world? 500px is now accepting submissions from photographers to exhibit their work in the 500px “Broken Reality” exhibit as part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival this May.

For our third annual CONTACT exhibition, interested photographers can submit their work for consideration via the 500px “Broken Reality” Quest. Submissions are open now until March 29.

Submit your work now!

The Theme

Photos submitted for consideration should challenge the viewer’s perception of reality and attempt to enable them to see beyond the surface. Images should focus on pushing the boundaries between reality and fantasy, showing us things that seem impossible in everyday life.

Check out this Gallery to get inspired.
