The entry fee is $5 per photograph for the 2018 Nashville Arts Magazine Photography Competition. Pay your entry fee here. Follow the guidelines below to submit your photographs.



The 2018 photography competition has begun! Between June 1 and October 20, we are accepting entries from all photographers–professional, students, and hobbyists alike. Last year we saw hundreds of submissions from across the world–Vietnam, UK, Uruguay, Japan, Germany to name a few as well as our own homegrown talent. It has been our honor to host this competition the past eight years and once again, Chromatics is sponsoring the following awards:

  • First place $500 cash
  • Second place $300 Chromatics gift card
  • Third place $200 Chromatics gift card

In addition, the top 10 entries will be printed in Nashville Arts Magazine, plus the top three local photographers may be given an opportunity to shoot an assignment for the magazine. A selection of entries will also appear online.


  1. Enter the competition 

The entry fee is $5 per photograph, and you can submit as many photographs as you want. Please note that due to upload limits on our site, we can only allow you to upload four photographs at once, but if you have paid for more entries, you’re welcome to use the form to submit more than once. Please reference the same order number.

You may purchase multiple submissions at once.  Simply add your desired number of submissions to the number area next to the ‘add to cart’ button.

  1. Submit your photograph(s) to the form on this page: https://nashvillearts.com/submission-2018-photography-contest/

Include ALL of the following information with each entry:

  • Name
  • Your Order Number (Found on the top of your order receipt)
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • A High resolution photograph–minimum of 1,000 by 1,000 pixels, at 300 dpi. (We would prefer at least 2,000 by 2,000 pixels or higher, at 300 dpi.) This is to ensure that, if selected, your photograph will be of a high enough quality to print in the magazine. Due to size restrictions, we can only accept jpeg or jpg files.

(Incomplete entries will be not be considered.)   

Please, do not include watermarks or signatures on your photos. They will be disqualified, as our judges will not see names with photos during the judging process.
