Society of Photographic Education will hold its annual convention in Denver, Colorado, March 13-18. This convention is not just for photography students and educators: Anyone who is interested in photography can attend. I attended a few years ago and found it very inspiring. I learned a lot and met some interesting people.
The Center for Fine Art Photography is calling for entries for an interesting competition–Edgy-Pushing the Limits of Photographic Art. You can view some representative examples of work here. Deadline for entry is February 5.
