PhotoPlace Gallery offers monthly, juried photographic exhibitions to photographers worldwide, each with a new topic and internationally recognized juror. All juror selections are exhibited in either the physical gallery in Middlebury, Vermont, or permanently displayed on the website. Since the founding in 2009, they have gained a reputation for exhibiting photography of a high level of excellence, while promoting photographers and providing them with tools to further promote their own work.
