APS Salon Exhibition for 2021 - Online
For many decades, the Atlanta Photographic Society (APS) has had an annual Salon, typically in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP). Members of the APS brought framed prints to the site of the Salon, the prints were hung, and the Salon listed in the ACP booklet. Due to the pandemic, the Salon did not occur in 2020. Salon 2021 is a go, but will be entirely online. Here’s the procedure.

Image Submission (Members Only)
Choose up to five of your images in any mix of color or monochrome for submission. Label each as for a monthly competition (e.g., “My Rabid Cat by Darryl Neill”).
Submit your images via the APS website, where a special section, working like but separate from the existing procedure for monthly competition entries will be placed. Prepare your images using the requirements for the monthly submissions (1920 pixels on the longest axis, saved as a JPEG with setting 8), and follow the onscreen instructions on the APS website to submit them.
All members should receive an email with the link for Salon entries and payment.
Members may also go to the APS website, log in through "Member Login", then click on the big orange button devoted to submitting Salon images, and follow the instructions.
After submitting your images, you’ll be asked to pay a fee of $20 total whether you submit 1 or 5 images. It is best if you submit all of your images at one time and then pay.
The fee for submission will be $20 total whether you submit 1 or 5 images. Fee collection will use a procedure like that, but separate from, the monthly competition entries.
Behind the Scenes
Images will be compiled by Computer Whiz Rohit and placed in the section of the APS website devoted to Salon 2021 by Graphic Artist Chris for all the World to see.
The World will be directed to your images mostly through the website of Atlanta Celebrates Photography, where a page will exist saying a little bit about our group and providing a spot to click for admission to our Salon. Members are encouraged to share the link with their friends, family, and others who love photography.
ACP says this about how they tell the World: “Your venue will be publicized to many thousands of people through our online festival guide and iPhone app. During the festival, we send a weekly email blast that lists events for the coming week, in which your event will be promoted to 7K+ subscribers. We’ll share your online listing with nearly 12K followers across our social-media channels, with our Instagram site receiving 190K+ impressions during last year’s festival, and our festival website attracting 50K pageviews.”
Dates and Deadlines
Image Submission/Payment Window: Saturday, August 28 thru Saturday, September 11 (11:59 PM).
Salon Webpage Live: Wednesday, September 15 thru November 1.
Three judges from outside our club will judge the images and award ribbons (1st, 2nd, 3rd, HM) in both the color and monochrome categories.
Please direct any questions to the Salon 2021 coordinator, Darryl Neill.
