‘Travel Photographer of the Year’ hosts new show of hope

NEW HOPE, PA – The Phillips’ Mill Photography Exhibit is accepting submissions for the exhibit by an internationally acclaimed National Geographic and Smithsonian photographer.

Photographer Bob Krist will be responsible for accepting submissions. He has won awards in Pictures of the Year, Communication Arts and World Press Photo competitions, was named “Travel Photographer of the Year” by the Society of American Travel Writers three times, and was honored at the Eisenstadt Awards for Magazine Photography. .

Submissions close Feb. 28 for the show, which runs April 2-22.

“This will be the first time since its inception that the prestigious photography exhibition will be seen both on-site at the historic Phillips’ Mill in New Hope, Pennsylvania, as well as online and accessible to the world,” according to a Press release.

Created in 1991 to promote photography as art, the juried exhibition celebrates “Photography as art, the photographer as artist” as a recurring theme. Over the years, the exhibition has grown and gained worldwide recognition – and is now considered the premier annual juried photography exhibition in Bucks County and beyond.

This year, Phillips’ Mill is thrilled to have Krist as a judge. His latest book, Old Souls & Timeless Places, won Best Travel Book of 2020 in the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Contest sponsored by the University of Missouri School of Journalism.

“With a camera in hand, Bob’s infectious smile and affable demeanor instantly open doors for him,” said Spencer Saunders, founder of the Phillips’ Mill photography exhibit. “The stories he tells and the photos he shares from inside those doors are fascinating. Bob could take a trip to the hardware store and look spectacular!”

Details of the call for art and submissions for up to six images can be found online.

The Phillips’ Mill Photographic Exhibition will take place April 2-22 at Phillips’ Mill, 2619 River Rd – and online. There will be an opening reception and get-together, with more details on the Phillips’ Mill website.
