From the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center website...
The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is excited to announce Daydream Nation, our 1st Annual Contemporary Photography Competition and Exhibition. The title refers to photography’s ability to project emotions and dreams of the maker and to interrogate experiences of either fantasy or truth. The photograph is often the success and sometimes the failure of that daydream.

First, second, and third prize winners will receive, $500, $200, and $100 in cash prizes plus $50 gift certificates for PPAC’s digital services.
