Photography is a unique medium: fundamental to news programs, social change movements, and the art world – yet accessible to nearly anyone. And FotoDC fully embraces that versatility. Diverse, high-quality exhibits provide exposure for emerging and established photographers and increase local engagement in the art of photography – with human rights and environmental causes often at the center of the frame. While programming culminates in the annual FotoWeek DC Festival, FotoDC is active year-round: teaming up with museums, galleries, curators, and embassies to showcase local, national, and international photographers to over 50,000 visitors and serving over 8,000 artists through juried competitions, portfolio reviews, and workshops. FotoDC also brings the art (and practice!) of photography to 2,200 public school students in the District through partnerships with the Washington Post and Critical Exposure (another Catalogue nonprofit) and engages artists and audiences through online galleries and event listings. During FotoWeek, galleries and venues around DC host openings, exhibits, contests, lectures, and an exhibition at FotoSpace. With your help, FotoDC can keep innovating and, of course, developing.
