Submissions to our Juried exhibition "Size Matters" are open from July 15 - Aug. 14. 

Size Matters is the signature exhibition of PHOTOLAB and the 2015 Medium Festival of Photography, offering more than $500 in awards. We're proud to partner with Low Gallery to host Size Matters from Oct. 24 - Nov. 23, 2015. Low Gallery is a prominent contemporary art space in San Diego's thriving Barrio Logan neighborhood.


We are looking for photographs that celebrate an intimate viewing experience, showcasing the power of small photographic prints. The exhibition is open to all subject matter and print media. Because we believe bigger is not always better, all images submitted must be smaller than 10” in the widest dimension. Size Matters is open to all photographers.


The exhibition will include a free public reception on Sat., Oct. 24, 2015. The Medium Festival of Photography will provide a shuttle to the reception for registered festival guests, running between the Lafayette Hotel and Low Gallery.
