Every year in Austin, TX, The Texas Photographic Society holds PHOTOTexas, the three-day symposium of workshops, lectures, and exhibitions. This year's event will take place on September 21, 22 & 23. The TPS National Competition, now in its 15th installment, will also hold its juried exhibition concurrently with the festival, from September 15 to October 6 at St. Edward's University Art Gallery with a reception on September 22. A Print Auction will take place September 21, 2007 at Davis Gallery.

The Texas Photographic Society's website:

"With over 100 prints being auctioned each year, the auction is an economical way to become of a collector of fantastic prints from the likes of Dan Winter, Ray Meeks, Kim Weston, Dan Burkholder (
