From photography to filmmaking, computers have forever expanded ways for artists to capture and produce their work. MFA celebrates this disruption by changing our annual photography show to an exhibition examining artistic use of digital media. Eligible artwork may be either 2-D or 3-D work that is created and/or produced through the use of software, whether purchased or artist-created, including photography, graphic design, digital painting, video, projection, and limited only by the artist’s imagination.

Juror Hamidah Glasgow is Executive Director and Curator at The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado. She holds a master’s degree in humanities with a specialization in visual and gender studies and a bachelor’s degree in philosophy. Hamidah’s contribution to photography has included curatorial projects, national portfolio reviews (FotoFest, Photolucida, Medium, Center, Filter, etc.), contributions to publications and online magazines and the co-hosting of regional conferences. She has over 26 years senior management experience in film/video/media production and non-profit arts organizations with expertise in the areas of curating and managing exhibitions. Hamidah is also a co-founder of the Strange Fire Collective. This collective is dedicated to photo-based work that engages with current social and political forces, highlighting the work of women, people of color, and queer and trans artists, writers, and curators.
