UCO’s Woody Gaddis Gallery seeks photo entries for ‘Defining Home’ contest

EDMOND — The University of Central Oklahoma’s Woody Gaddis Gallery is seeking participants for its fifth annual national photo contest, themed “Defining Home.”

This year’s theme encourages artists to submit work that embraces the emotional, biological, cultural and societal associations beyond the physical space in which we live through photography.

“Home is defined as the physical space where we permanently live. The reality is home is different for everyone,” said Angela Cejda Mackey, manager of UCO’s Photographic Arts facilities and one of the contest’s facilitators.

“It may be the place we were born or a space we create for ourselves. We hope to see a variety of visual interpretations of home through this exhibition.”

Participants may enter up to three submissions of photographic work, which can include traditional darkroom, digital, alternative process and manipulated images.

First, second and third place will receive awards, and up to four honorable mentions will be named.

The deadline for physical submissions is Nov. 15. The deadline for digital submissions has passed.

For submission requirements and guidelines or for more information, contact Cejda Mackey at or 405-974-5887.
