The annual Foreign Exchange photography competition aims to provide photographers with an opportunity to connect and share their best work. Much like its name, Foreign Exchange is the mixing and sharing of ideas and projects. We want to provide a platform for exposure and give recognition for merit.

Participants’ work will be seen and selected by a panel of esteemed jurors. During the submission process, select artists will be featured weekly in the SPOTLIGHT section. Upon completion of the submission period, the top 6 artists will be selected and exhibited online in the winners’ gallery. Additionally, the winning work will be exhibited at the 2731 Prospect gallery in Cleveland, Ohio.
