The Phillips’ Mill Photographic Exhibition is seeking entries for its 26th 

annual competition and has selected a panel of jurors to choose the images – and prize winners – for the show scheduled for June 2-24 at the 1756 grist mill just outside New Hope, Pa.  

The exhibition’s theme since the first exhibition has remained, “Photography as Art” and “Photographer as Artist.” Photographers are encouraged to submit a current body of work created within the past five years. Images may be in any photographic medium, from historic to alternative and digital, in order to best represent the artist’s creative expression.

The exhibition draws entries from hobbyists, as well as professional artists from throughout the country and, in some years, from around the globe. More than half a dozen financial awards are presented, including a prize for “Best of Show.”  

Entries may be shipped by May 8 to PMPE Entries, 358 Cafferty Road, Pipersville Pa., 18947. Submissions may also be hand-delivered to Phillips’ Mill Community Association, 2619 River Road, New Hope on May 11 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 12. There is no limit to the number of submissions.  

Entry fee is $42 for up to four images; $10 for each additional image submitted. PMPE also accepts matted and covered images for non-juried portfolio bins. Up to four images can be submitted free of charge. The fee is $10 for each additional image. All work submitted for the exhibition must be available for sale.

Send Events To





The Lower Bucks Leader welcomes announcements and event postings, and we do not charge for items that appear on our Community Bulletin Board. Here are a few things to keep in mind when submitting an item:


  • Please email a brief paragraph (or two at most) about your event to, writing it out exactly as you would like it to appear. Be sure to include the date, time, place, price of admission, and where people can get additional info. We will only edit the text if we must, in order to make it fit.


  • Please do not send a flyer, either by email or regular mail, because the info contained in it will have to be retyped by LBL staff. We often do not have time to do so. It’s okay to send a flyer as long as you also provide the text separately.


  • Please note that we cannot guarantee that an item we receive will be included, since we receive more than we can fit. While we applaud charity events sponsored by or hosted at local businesses, we give priority to nonprofit organizations as well as true community and township events.
