G2 Mission

The G2 Gallery is an award-winning nature and wildlife photography gallery that facilitates change by bringing attention to environmental issues through the persuasive power of photographic art. G2 shares this passion with both celebrated and emerging environmental photographers, who use the camera as a tool to inspire conservation.

G2 donates all proceeds from sales of the art to environmental groups.

Application Criteria

Juried photographers must maintain full control over their images. They can use traditional film and chemical darkroom or digital processes. The photographer must be knowledgeable and proficient in all aspects of image capture, process and presentation and be able to reproduce all work presented. Specialty processes and alterations made to original images to include photo collages, composites, toning, tinting and hand coloring techniques are acceptable as long as the photographer owns the copyright to all images used and performs the work. Professional commercial labs can be used for printing in cases where specialty equipment, unique processes, or large scale sizes are required as long as original film or digital files created and managed by the photographer are used as masters. Examples of current photography prints are: silver, hand tinted silver, platinum, palladium, dye- transfer, carbon pigment, C-print, R-print, ink-jet, giclee and iris.

Prints should be presented with archival materials by mounting, matting and/or protected with clear bags, shrink wrapping or framing. Frames should be of quality metal or wood construction and complement the photography. Alternative display methods will be considered on an individual basis as new methods are developed.

Photographers are expected to sign photographs and label all work with information about themselves, materials used, processes and archival qualities. Open or limited edition prints should be specified, and if the latter, numbered by traditional standards. The photographer's work must demonstrate high technical proficiency with attention to composition, design, aesthetics and presentation. The work must show more than just technical proficiency or a reproduction of a recognized style. Photographic images should express the creator's personal style and demonstrate pre-visualization and state of the art processing standards. The completed product should be a lasting work with exhibition quality and visual impact.
