The Alaska State Museum is seeking entries for its biennial exhibition of Alaska photography.
The museum says in a news release that its Alaska Positive series encourages photography as an art form in the state.
The deadline for entries is Sept. 22. The exhibition will be juried by Portland photographer Holly Andres.
There will be a $300 Juror’s Choice Award and two $150 Awards of Recognition. Other photos will be selected for honorable mention. The exhibit will be shown at the museum and tour the state.
The competition is open to Alaska residents.
