University City Photo Show

The annual University City Photo Show is open to amateur adult and youth (twelfth grade and younger) photographers in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

This year’s show is entitled “Stop Me In My Tracks” which, according to the Photo Show committee, asks photographers to figure “what they’re trying to express and when to press the button,” to awaken their “vision to create stunning images.” They ask that photographers look for the unexpected, “be it in the city streets, local parks or their own front lawn.”
