This past summer, my college advisor notified me and my fellow photo majors about a call for artists for Beijing Photo Week. It was open internationally, to photographers under 30 years old, for a digital slideshow. I figured I didn't have anything to lose, so I entered a collection of photos at the last minute. Much to my surprise, I was accepted! I was one of 20 young photographers out of nearly 300 who submitted work to be accepted, and one of only two in the United States alone!
Beijing Photo Week just ended, it was October 15 - 23rd, 2016. The show I was a part of, entitled Everyday Encounter, was shown on October 18th at the Multifunction Hall of China Millennium Monument. The event was sponsored by the Information Resource Department of China Photographers Association (CPA) and organized by PHOTOINTER (www.photoint.net). According to PHOTOINTER, over 200 people attended the viewing!

- Selected photos from myself and the other chosen artists can be seen here.
Although I didn't get to jet myself over to Beijing for the events, it's still a very cool experience to be picked up for an international digital photo show!
Here's a few of the photos I had exhibited! My collection was entitled "I'm New Here", featuring some new and old works, both of digital and film photography.
All of the slideshows by each of the 20 photographers is viewable on a YouTube playlist.
Be sure to check out the other artists as well!
