Click! is proud to partner with the City of Durham's Public Art Committee and Photoville to present THE FENCE in Durham. THE FENCE is an outdoor photography exhibition series with an annual audience of more than 3 million visitors.
Over the past 4 years, THE FENCE has consistently attracted exceptional work by talented photographers from around the world, giving us an opportunity to share these powerful photographic narratives with a diverse audience of millions of visitors annually, while providing photographers with a truly public platform and unexpected career opportunities.
For our 5th edition this year, we’re pleased to announce the addition of a $5,000 cash prize for the Jury’s Choice Winner and an additional outdoor exhibition venue in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Photographers of all levels are invited to submit work that fits under one or more of our 6 thematic categories: Home, Streets, People, Creatures, Nature, and Play.
Once submissions are completed, an international jury of photography professionals will be called upon to review and select 40 photographers whose submitted work exemplifies the essence of “community” across cultural boundaries and geographical lines.
The selected projects will be presented in a series of large-scale, curated, outdoor exhibitions across 5 cities in the United States: Brooklyn, Boston, Atlanta, Houston, and Santa Fe.

In addition to having your work exhibited around the country, $25,000 worth of prizes are being awarded, including the Jury’s Choice winner receiving a $5,000 Project Support Grant and a solo exhibition at Photoville 2017, and the People’s Choice winner will receive a Leica Camera Package and a one-year mentorship.

Winners from the Triangle Region will be eligible for a host of local prizes including museum/arts organization memberships, local shows/presentations, portfolio reviews, photography books, etc. 

Win national exposure, grant money and gear: Enter The Fence before the early-bird deadline on 3/14.
