Phillips Collection Seeks Photo Submissions for 2020 Project

By Maryland Today Staff

The Phillips Collection, a partner of the University of Maryland, has launched a project to capture this unprecedented year in unique photography.

“Community in Focus” aims to put together a collective portrait filled with human emotions that connect us all: bravery, humor, sadness, creativity and kindness. Everyone—no matter the skill level—is invited to submit a photo that captures a piece of their 2020.

Select qualified submissions will be shared through the renowned D.C. museum’s and partners' Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as the Phillips Collection's blog, website and e-newsletter. They will also be presented on-site at the Phillips Collection and at its satellite campus Phillips@THEARC as a projected exhibition Jan. 9-Feb. 7, 2021.

Photographs must be from the year 2020 and submitted by Nov. 29 on the online form. They must be at least 1080 pixels, have a caption of up to 50 words, and be labeled with the date and last name as explained on the form.
