Looking for love? Find and photograph the hidden hearts that abound along our beautiful Central Coast . . . along the shore, in the sky, deep in the woods or high in the hills, or anywhere in unexpected places. Just as our annual film festival this year focuses on the theme of “for love of film,” we ask all photographers out there to focus on finding signs of love in life around you.

Submit your best and most intriguing shots. Our panel of judges will select its 10 favorite heart images, print them in large format, and display them in our Cambria Center for the Arts Studio Gallery before and during the upcoming international Cambria Film Festival, February 8 – 11, 2024. Winners can opt to keep their large print after the show, or offer it for sale and keep the proceeds minus our standard gallery commission. All entries will be available to view in a special digital gallery at during the film festival period. Viewers will be allowed to vote for their favorite among those displayed in the Studio. The Audience Favorite will be announced at the end of the film festival period.
