How are the images selected?
The selection process is modeled after how the McKnight Photography Fellowship was juried. The show is typically juried by three or four people consisting of Homegrown steering committee members, and other members of the art community.
Once the registration deadline has passed, each juror is presented with every image submitted, one by one in a random order. Registration details aside from the provided caption and description are withheld to keep a degree of anonymity so that each photograph can be assessed on its merits.
Once all the votes have been cast, the photographs are assessed in a highest to lowest rated order. The highest rated image from each photographer is selected, with three additional slots available for the first three photographers who appear on the list twice. These three photographers are awarded space for two pieces in the exhibit. From there the top-rated image, in order of juror rating is selected until the wall space if all accounted for.
