The Shrode Photography Competition and Exhibition is a juried competition open to artists 18 years of age and older living in southern Illinois south of Interstate 70, including Charleston, IL. Eligible media accepted included photography created with photographic film, and digital images.

199 photographs were entered in this year’s competition from 45 different artists, representing 21 southern Illinois communities! 38 works were accepted representing 29 artists. We are delighted that so many people in the region are involved in the art of photography and that we are able to offer this challenge.
