Boothbay Harbor — A number of Midcoast photographers have had images selected for exhibition in the annual “Maine Photography Show.” Now in its 14th year, the MPS will run April 6 through May 3 in the Boothbay Regional Art Foundation’s downtown gallery.

For the 2019 show, photos were solicited in four categories: Special Category — Infrared; Black and White; Color; and Student. Show juror was professional photographer and educator Ron Rosenstock. The MPS steering committee includes Bruce Burnham, chairman; and Steve Dunn, Dave Hodsdon, Ella Hudson, LeAnn LaFleur, Norbert Leser, Leisha McDougall, George Paton, Linwood Riggs, Zoe Theberge and Sandra Wescott.

From the 775 outstanding images submitted by 295 photographers, including 20 students, Rosenstock selected 109 images for the exhibition. Thanks to the generous contributions from MPS sponsors, cash awards to first, second, third and honorable mentions in each category will be presented, including a $500 award for Best of Show.
