The Human Portrait

The Human Portrait

In its truest form, portraiture is about human connection. A portrait tells a lot about a person. Their emotion. Their grit. Their story. There is no other genre of photography that displays human vulnerability in its rawest form.

DCP invites you to enter this juried competition with photographs that illustrate this human connection. They can be self-portraits or portraits of others; posed or candid; studio or environmental; camera original or digital composite.

Selections will be featured in a virtual exhibition on the DCP website. We are also planning to have an exhibition catalog in book form that will be available for purchase.

DCP will host a virtual opening reception on Friday, December 11 that is free and open to the public. Juror Jennifer Spelman will be in attendance to discuss the winning entries. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third winners.

This competition is not open to DCP employees, instructors, board members, corporate sponsors, partner companies, or their immediate families.
