Viewer's Choice and Public Access

Entirely separate from the IMAGES 2019 professional juried process, submitted photographs to the IMAGES competition may also participate in the online "Viewer's Choice"  donate-to-vote competition.  Participation in Viewer’s Choice is entirely voluntary (a simple option selected during entry submission) and will in no way effect the selection of artists to exhibit or “Best in Show.”  Funds generated by the Viewer’s Choice are used to offset the cost of this website.  

The Viewer's Choice winner is a single photograph with the highest number of public votes. Votes are cast by making a donation ($1 = 1 vote).   The winner of the Viewer's Choice voting will receive recognition at the opening of the IMAGES 2019 Juried Photography Show at the Fairfield Museum.  Viewer's Choice voting ends on Monday, January 14, 2019.  The Viewer's Choice voting, ranking, or winner has NO BEARING on the juried process or final selections of the IMAGES 2019 Photography Show. 

If you DO NOT want your submitted photograph to be viewed publicly, or you do not wish to participate in Viewer's Choice option, please be sure to select the "opt-out" options during your photograph's submission process!

Photographers selected for the IMAGES 2019 exhibition will be notified by email on or before February 1, 2019.

Photographers NOT selected will be notified by email on or before February 4, 2019.
