Some updates on what's happening with photographers in the American South early into this summer season

The closing date for submissions in July 25th, 2013, so you still have time to get your work in.
Here is where you go to submit your work.
2. Still on the subject of galleries, Atlanta gallery owner Jennifer Schwartz continues her reports from Critical Mass on her blog, here.
