Eastern State is one of the most photogenic locations in America. Each year photographers travel from as far away as California and Canada to photograph the penitentiary.
Each member may submit one color and one black and white Eastern State Penitentiary photograph for our 2014 Members’ Photo Contest. Photos will remain on view throughout the weekend. Visitors to the historic site can cast votes for their favorite images throughout the weekend.
On Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm, two sets of winners will be announced in the color and black and white categories. Guest curator Harris Fogel, Associate Professor and Program Director of Photography at the University of the Arts, will select one set of winners, and the results of the weekend’s voting will be announced. Each first place winner from the Members' Photo Contest has the opportunity to schedule a four-hour, private, behind-the-scenes photo shoot of Eastern State.
