Calling all Photographers!


“Our Las Vegas” is delighted to announce our first public call for participation. All Las Vegans are invited to submit photographs for “The Daily Frame,” an artists project launched in 2012 with the generous support of the Las Vegas Arts Commission.

Please Note: while the June 15, 2014 deadline to submit work eligible for awards by the jury has passed, we still wholeheartedly encourage you to submit work for publication, and welcome your participation in the Daily Frame project!

•   What is The Daily Frame?
At the rate of once every 24 hours, The Daily Frame  features a photograph of/from/about the Radiant City and its brilliant, creative inhabitants.

The work of over 50 creatives have been featured so far.
