Join us for a global celebration of photography and community this summer solstice weekend.

Photographic Center NW (PCNW) is an educational institution facilitating creation, conversation, and experiences of photography. LONG SHOT is our annual spring fundraiser celebrating photography and community, taking place Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 19-21.  Long Shot begins with a 24 hour shoot, mobilizing people around the globe to unite in one day of image-making. Submit Saturday, and celebrate Sunday in Seattle with an installation of images made during the global shoot!

How does Long Shot work?


A donation of $20 registers you for Long Shot. Registration grants your participation in the event, which includes image submission, your images reviewed by a panel of professionals, and selected image printed on Hahnemühle paper and exhibited at PCNW Long Shot event and fundraiser. On June 19, join photographers across the globe in one day of image-making worldwide. Shoot with any camera, any where in the world, and for any length of time! 



On June 20 submit up to 5 images taken during Long Shot. A panel of industry professionals review submissions and select one image from each participant. All selections will be featured online and printed at PCNW for exhibition and fundraiser Sunday.  Deadline for online submissions is 12pm (noon) PST and 4pm PST for darkroom prints submissions. PCNW will have extended hours on that Friday and Saturday for film shooters to develop and print their submissions.  On Sunday, June 21 from 6-9pm join us for a Seattle celebration and fundraiser exhibition with music, refreshments, and amazing artwork. Every $50 donation to PCNW grants that individual a unique Long Shot photograph!
