The 3rd annual Rejected! Exhibition registration is now live!

We’re excited to announce that we’re back for another year!  We are finalizing our new location and will have that information soon.  The only requirements to enter is a $10 ticket and a forwarded rejection email from the Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts Photography Contest.  We are accepting 2019 rejections only.

Much like the Fair, we have limited space, but much more space for photography.  Due to our space limitation, each photograph will be subject to a panel jury.  Accepted entries will be notified according to the timeline below.  We are still investigating other avenues of display for those that don’t get in the exhibition.

So, if you’ve been rejected, enter here!

Because final images need to be professionally printed and framed, we reached out to our previous contest sponsors, and they’ve responded with discounts, and an understanding of the timeliness of the show.
