Phillips' Mill Photographic Exhibition

The prestigious Phillips’ Mill Photographic Exhibition is a month-long celebration of the fine art of photography. It is now considered the premier annual juried photography exhibition in Bucks County, Pa.

Since its inception in 1991, the theme “Photography as Art, Photographer as Artist” has remained a constant. Over the years, as the show has grown and gained worldwide recognition, it has continued to attract extraordinary talent.

The Results Are In!

We are excited to announce that the 2022 Phillips’ Mill Photographic Exhibition is on display in the gallery at the Mill. This year’s show was judged by award-winning photographer and filmmaker Bob Krist, whose assignments for such publications as National Geographic, National Geographic Traveler, Smithsonian and Islands have taken him across the globe. 

For the 2022 Photographic Exhibition, our esteemed juror Bob Krist selected 136 images from 1143 submissions, which came from 18 states and 2 countries.  Bob had this to say about all of the work submitted: "Thanks for the opportunity to be the juror for this year’s competition. I will freely admit that I was blown away by the breadth and depth of the work. Whether it was nature, landscape, art, portraiture, street photography, there was just so much high-quality work it made narrowing down the prize winners a very painful, but rewarding experience. Thanks again and kudos to all the accepted entries.”

Thank you to all who entered, and congratulations to all the accepted artists with work on display in this year's Photographic Exhibition. We welcome everyone to come and see prints on the Mill walls for the first time in three years!

Previous Exhibition

The 2020 Phillips' Mill Photo Exhibition was the first online show presented by Phillips' Mill. It was a spectacular, visually diverse, thought-provoking show. The show's esteemed juror, Emmet Gowin, loved the diversity of the work and the considerable talent evident in all the submissions.

The 27th exhibition of photography at Phillips' Mill was markedly different than planned. All the same, Phillips' Mill Photo was well prepared to transition the April 2020 exhibit, originally planned for a month-long showing at the Mill, to an online platform.

The committee of Mill members, led by Spencer Saunders and co-chaired by Alina Marin-Bliach, had already digitized the show.

The new capabilities allowed for a ready shift to an online venue required by the pandemic's need for social distancing.

Welcome to the show!

Our esteemed juror Emmet Gowin selected 143 images, from 1000 submissions, for the exhibition.

Congratulations to all those who were accepted and won awards. Emmet Gowin loved the diversity of the work and the considerable talent evident in all the submissions.

Please enjoy viewing the 2020 Photographic Exhibition in our online gallery. We hope you find it to be visually diverse, thought-provoking, and a pleasure to see.
