ASMP Call for Entry – Extended Deadline!

December 9, 2022 @ 12:00 am - January 9, 2023 @ 11:59 pm

$10.00 – $25.00




As 2022 draws to a close, we seek images that collectively offer a portrait of life in the USA during this past year. It was a year filled with hope as well as uncertainty. What has characterized 2022 in your community or elsewhere in our diverse country? As many seek human to human connection after an extended period of isolation and virtual interactions, in what ways has our world changed? In all aspects of life in 2022 we see duality—from political expression, to economic challenges, to the comfort level of returning to social gatherings, travel, and recreation.

From a personal to a sociological perspective, a  broad interpretation of the theme is encouraged. All genres, capture types, black & white and color are welcome for submission. All submitted images need to be taken within the United States during 2022. ASMP members and non-members are welcome to participate. Please follow our guidelines. 


  • Submission deadline: 1/9/23 (11:59 PM PDT)
  • Notification of acceptance: 1/14/23
  • Accepted work only—deadline to send hi-res print files: 1/21/23
  • Opening reception: Thursday 2/9/23
  • Closing: Thursday 3/23/23 


Images will be chosen by the jurors for an in-person group exhibition at Photo Impact Imaging in Hollywood, CA. ASMP-LA will cover the costs and arrange for printing at Photo Impact’s digital lab. All photographers will be notified of the jurors’ decisions by January 14, 2023 or shortly after. All exhibited work will be offered for sale at $250 to be split 50/50 between the artist and a charity of ASMP’s choice. Work not sold must be picked up in person or it will be discarded. 

In order for ASMP-LA to print selected work, instructions for submitting hi-res TIFF files will be included in acceptance email notifications. Deadline for sending TIFF files will be 1/21/23. If printing files are not of adequate size and quality, or not received by the deadline, we reserve the right to withdraw inclusion in the print gallery exhibition.


Up to 30 images will be selected by the jurors for ASMP-LA’s group exhibition. Awards will be given for 1st place, 2nd place, and two Honorable Mentions. Prizes will be:
1st place: One year ASMP professional level membership or renewal if already a member ($335 value).
2nd place: One year membership or renewal at associate level ($225 value).
Honorable mentions will each receive a $75 gift card, which can be redeemed at the ASMP shop.
