The Clark Library is now seeking fine art photographs from current students, faculty and staff.


Deadline extended to: Monday, March 16, 2015

Number of Entries: Maximum of 7 images per person


  • * Photographers must be current students, staff, or faculty at the University of Portland.
  • * Submitted photographs must be available as high resolution images (e.g. 300 dpi). The selected photographs will be printed, framed (11 x 14), and displayed in the exhibit area on the library’s upper floor.


  • * The jury is looking for fine art photographs that embody a creative use of photography, tell a story, or feature a theme. [See 2013 winners for examples.]
  • * Photographs can be created using analog or digital processes.
  • * Photographs may encompass a broad range of subject matter including portraiture, landscape and still life. They can reflect your visual experiences from anywhere, whether they were on campus or beyond our campus.


The Jury anticipates a selection of 10 – 15 images. Jury members: Pat Bognar (Performing & Fine Arts), Michael Connolly (Performing & Fine Arts), and Marc Covert (Marketing & Communications).

Selected artists will be asked to send high resolution (300 dpi) jpgs of their photographs by the end of March. Final images will be printed and framed (11 x 14 inches). The exhibit will be hung in early April and will be in place for two years.
