ABOUT THE FENCE

The FENCE is a large-scale traveling photography exhibition reaching over 4 million visitors annually through open-air exhibitions in 7 cities across the United States: Brooklyn, Boston, Atlanta, Houston, Santa Fe, Durham, and Denver.

Photographers submitting to The FENCE 2017 may also be considered for one of our 4 Regional Showcase exhibitions that will highlight work by photographers living in New Mexico, Colorado, North Carolina, and New England respectively.

Since its inception, THE FENCE has consistently attracted exceptional work by talented photographers from around the world, giving us an opportunity to share these powerful photographic narratives with a diverse audience of millions of visitors annually, while providing photographers with a truly public platform and unexpected career opportunities.

Photographers of all levels are invited to submit work for consideration by the jury. The submitted work should fit one or more of our 7 thematic categories: Home, Streets, People, Creatures, Nature, Play, and Food.

THE FENCE was conceived by United Photo Industries and Photo District News in 2011. It was presented for the first time in 2012 in Brooklyn Bridge Park and has since grown and flourished through a series of strategic partnerships with like-minded cultural organizations across the United States.
