Call For Entry: Queer Conscience 2023 Photography Exhibition

Juried by: Kari Orvik, Nathan Lomas, and The Image Flow

The Image Flow invites artists closely tied to the LGBTQIA2+ community to submit work to our juried photography exhibition Queer Conscience 2023.

What could you do with a clear conscience? Who could you be? How could you live, free of judgment, shame, expectation, or fear?

The queer experience is unlike any other, and even within our vibrant community, no two queer identities are quite alike. This is what has the power to unite us; a respect for our differences that can create bonds like family. Living as a queer person can be complex, and frightening, and beautiful all at once.

In this juried exhibition set to coincide with Pride month, we ask LGBTQIA2+ artists to share their truest queer journeys with us, and allow us to see your personal ✨queer conscience✨.


Jury Process

Our panel of jurors will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the San Anselmo gallery and our online gallery.

All explorations in photographic media will be considered for this exhibition.

Photographers whose work is in a digital format will have their work printed and framed by The Image Flow for exhibition. For original/analog pieces, framed work must be shipped to our gallery with return shipping labels.


This call is open to all photographers who consider themselves members of the LGBTQIA2+ community; we absolutely cherish and love our straight friends and allies, but for this exhibit, we hope to amplify queer voices.

This national call for entry is open to all photographic artists living or working in the United States and its territories. All entries must be original works of art and entirely the work of the entrant. Accepted entries will be exhibited at The Image Flow in San Anselmo, CA, and in our online gallery.

All original artwork must be framed to professional standards. For details see Terms & Conditions.

Image File Requirements

Image submissions should be sized to 2500 px on the longest edge, 72ppi, JPG saved at 80% quality in sRGB colorspace.
File size must be limited to 5MB.

For more information about submission policies, requirements, liability, and consent criteria please visit our Terms & Conditions.
