  5. Please include the following information in your email to us: Name or pseudonym – please indicate if you wish to remain anonymous and a three-sentence description of the project or book.

We will try to review as many submissions as possible for comments by the panel at the festival, but cannot guarantee all submissions will be viewed. Files will only be accepted via email and only with the proper formatting.

  • Only one submission of 6 images will be accepted per registered AFCC participant.
  • Only verbal critiques will be given to participants, who must be present at the conference session.
