Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Photography Competition

Written by:

I have visited the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico, several times. The museum possesses a lovely collection of the large-format artwork for which the artist is so well known. If you have the opportunity and you’re in the Santa Fe area, I highly recommend a visit!

The proprietors of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum have asked me to share the following photo competition with you. One of my goals for this year was to submit my work into more photo competitions – if you share the same goal, this is a great opportunity!
