On May 18th, you and 72 photographers will be turned loose in the City of Portland. This year, you will have larger squares to work in and 4 different zones around the City. With Portland Squared, you can go out to do documentary photography or you can go out to create something yourself. We have 8 Categories Awards and 9 Craft Awards.
