Industrial Photography Exhibition

  The National Museum of Industrial History is hosting an industrial photography exhibition in celebration of Lehigh Valley Photography month in November. The exhibit will showcase photographic-based art that focuses on industry across the Lehigh Valley and beyond. Images do not have to be taken in the Lehigh Valley or focus on Bethlehem Steel! Be creative – industry can be anything from shipbuilding to manufacturing to welding. Submissions are $10 for three images. You will be taken to the payment page following your submission. All photos must be framed and ready to hang, or if using an alternative method like metal prints, have backings for hanging. All photos will be judged by a panel of NMIH staff.

Submission open: September 29
Deadline: October 20
Notifications of acceptance: October 23
Artwork drop-off deadline: October 31

Images will be on display beginning November 3rd to coincide with the beginning of Artsquest’s Invision Photo Festival and run through the end of the month.

1st Place – two tickets for the 2018 NMIH Gala ($175 value) and a family membership to the museum ($75 value)
2nd Place – family membership to the museum ($75 value)

3rd Place – $30 gift certificate to the museum’s gift shop

Photographers may sell their images through the gallery by listing a price in the applicable field on the form. If you work is not for sale, please mark it ‘NFS’. NMIH will retain a 30% commission for all artwork sold.

All photos must be retrieved by December 15 following the exhibition. NMIH is not responsible for keeping or storing works past this date.
