Marie Selby Botanical Gardens will present its 43rd Annual Juried Photographic Exhibition from August 29 through September 30. This year’s exhibition will again be conducted virtually, with digital photos entered through an online portal and all accepted submissions displayed in an online gallery for the duration of the show. The open call for submissions will run from August 7 through 14. Photographs that are entered for consideration for the show must have been taken at or of either Selby Gardens campus—Downtown Sarasota or Historic Spanish Point—within the past year. The five entry categories for 2023 will be: Living Art - Express your creativity and artfully interpret nature through the play of light, color, and composition; Make a Splash - Showcase the scenic beauty of the aquatic environments at Selby Gardens’ two bayfront campuses; Plant Portraits - Capture the character of the plants that are the real stars of the show at Selby Gardens; The Birds and the Bees - Highlight the wonderful wildlife at the Downtown Sarasota and Historic Spanish Point campuses; Black and White - Convey the beauty of nature at Selby Gardens through the elegance of black-and-white photography. Complete rules and requirements will be available later this summer on the photo submission portal, which will be accessible via selby.org. Entry fees will remain unchanged from 2022: Selby Gardens members – $30 for first entry, $10 for each additional (up to three entries total); non-Members – $45 for first entry, $15 for each additional (up to three entries total). Selby Gardens’ 2023 Juried Photographic Exhibition is presented in partnership with Observer Media Group. Last year’s photo exhibition garnered nearly 300 entries. “Best in Show” was awarded to Patricia Nebel for her black-and-white image titled The Bishop.
