In its 5th year, Portland Squared is our photography community’s premiere event. Come join fellow photographers documenting 4 geographical areas of Portland. Open to professionals, amateurs, and students, Portland Squared is much more than a photography contest with fantastic prizes. It’s a great social and educational event where we share, learn, and have a lot of fun together. In 24 hours we’ll shoot, edit, and submit our best entries. After that it’s time for the included dinner, beer, and wine. Capped off with a live judging panel while we watch submissions projected on the big screen. OVER $8000 in prizes will be awarded in 14 categories. On May 13th, you and 70+ photographers will be turned loose in the City of Portland. This year, you will have larger squares to work in and 4 different zones around the City. With Portland Squared, you can go out to do documentary photography or you can go out to create something yourself. We have 8 Categories Awards and 5 Craft Awards, plus our Instagram “Keep Portland Squared” contest, and our special Lensbaby Craft Award.
