The Fence returns to Durham in 2020


The Photoville FENCE is a year-round public photography project exhibited in major parks and downtowns across North America.

Here’s how it works:

A jury of 50+ international arts and media leaders reviews every series submitted.

Artist Annoucement: June 2020

40 artists will be selected for the 9th edition of The Photoville FENCE. Additionally, over 30 photographers will be selected for the Regional Photographers Showcase public exhibitions.
Juror’s Choice + People’s Choice

Additional awards will be given to two artists

– An artist selected by the jury will receive a $5,000 project development cash grant, mentorship, and a public solo exhibition at the Photoville festival in NYC in the fall of 2020
– An artist selected by the public will receive a Leica camera package.

Production: June 2020

Selected artists are notified. We handle everything needed to bring this large scale exhibition to life (curation, design, permitting, insurance, printing, installations etc.)
