The Chelsea International Photography Competition — Opens July 18, 2017

Photographers at both the amateur and professional level are invited to enter the Chelsea International Photography Competition. With a fierce dedication to promoting the arts and discovering and exposing new talent, the CIPC will honor selected artists with an exhibition at Agora Gallery, providing invaluable exposure to promote career growth and boost recognition.

This year’s competition awards are valued at over $55,000 and are designed specifically to support our larger mission: to promote the spread of extraordinary and innovative art in our modern world and to ensure the future productivity and enhance the careers of selected artists. Selected photographers will participate in the collective exhibition and receive valuable PR opportunities. A portion of the gallery’s proceeds from artwork sales will be donated to the Children’s Heart Foundation.

The 2017 Chelsea International Photography Competition will be accepting entries July 18 – September 13, 2017. Results are announced on October 24, 2017, with the competition exhibition scheduled for January 27 – February 7, 2018.
