The Augusta Photo Festival is coming soon: October 19 to 28, 2018. 

The entry period for Augusta, Georgia’s most prestigious photography competition closed on July 31 with almost 800 entries vying for more than $4000 in prizes. The finalists will be notified by the end of August, at which time we'll unveil the gallery of all of the entries. Stand by!

It is now time to start registering for one of 16 workshops and 10 photo walks. And planning your visits to the six photo exhibitions around the Augusta area.

For the first time ever, a series of workshops have been identified as "novice track" topics just for the beginner photographer. Photo walks will take photographers to the Telfair/Greene Streets area of Augusta, Redcliffe Plantation in Beech Island, the Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson on 7th Street, along Broad Street in Augusta, and a West Side High School football game! Visit the workshops tab to sign up for workshops.

Photo exhibitions are being offered at the Augusta-Richmond County Municipal Building, the Augusta Public Library Main Branch, the Jessye Norman School of the Arts, and the Morris Museum of Art. To learn more about these exhibitions, visit the Events and Exhibitions tab. 

There's lots to do during the month of October as we explore the wonderful world of photographic art. We hope to see you there! 

The planning committee is hard at work, but still looking for volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, at any level, please contact Mary Bordeaux.  There are opportunities for everyone ... you don't have to be a great photographer.
