The Portland Business Alliance is pleased to announce that it is partnering with Gallery Go Go for a Fall 2022 Art Show Competition. As part of a campaign under its Downtown Portland marketing initiative, the Alliance has issued a call for photographers and/or photography enthusiasts interested in participating in the Fall Back in Love with Downtown Portland: Artists Takeover campaign. This campaign doubles as an art show contest that aims to capture the beauty, essence, and spirit of Downtown Portland – for a cash prize.  

Select participants have the opportunity to showcase their entries as part of a month-long art exhibit in October at Gallery Go Go, located at 700 SW 5th Avenue in Downtown Portland’s Pioneer Place Mall. 

“I am thrilled to host the Fall Back in Love with Downtown Portland: Artists Takeover. The best ideas for the future come from the creative community,” says Azure Attoe, Owner of Gallery Go Go. “ 

Launching today, the competition is accepting photographs with “Downtown Portland in the Fall” as the theme. Submissions must be original works; showcase Downtown Portland’s beauty, essence, and spirit; and be appropriate for all ages. A specially curated panel of local art enthusiasts will select their favorite art pieces for the gallery in the last week of September for exhibit display throughout October. The overall crowd favorite photograph will receive a $500 cash prize and be sold by Gallery Go Go. All applicants chosen for the exhibition will also be able to sell their selected print (s) for an equal set price of $40. 

“Fall is arguably the most beautiful time of year in Portland, and we developed this campaign with the creatives who love Portland in mind,” says Sommer Martin, Director of Downtown Marketing for the Portland Business Alliance. “The Fall Back in Love with Downtown Portland campaign is special. Not only is the art pop-up new, it also speaks directly to die-hard Portlanders who want to use their fine art skill to capture and archive the very essence of our city.”
